About Yogaion

Imagine peace and tranquillity in one of the best eco yoga retreats Portugal has to offer. A sustainable ocean yoga retreat with surf, deliciously healthy meals & nature. Close to Aljezur amidst the Costa Vicentina natural park on the stunning, rugged south-west coast of the Algarve.

Yogaion throughout the year offers different types of Yoga retreats oganised by E-RYT500 Yoga teacher Shaini Verdon. The main retreat is the yoga, surf & nourish retreat which contains 3 different packages:


  2. YOGA & SURF


The Surf package is for the ones that want to have a full week of Surfing besides twice daily Yoga classes. In the Surf & nourish there will be one less day of surf so that there is time to relax the muscles & to join a great cooking workshop. The last one, Yoga & Nourish, is the complete pamper package with massages, a cooking workshop & a mindfulness session.

Then there are also 2 very special retreats in 2024


The women's wisdom & sculpt retreat will be held in Cantabria, Spain.

During all the retreats Yogaion only accommodates small groups of maximum of 10- 12 (Surfing) Yogis, making sure everybody gets the personal attention they need.

Yogaion always tries its utmost best to provide the most natural, sustainable retreats with consciousness. Eating from farm to plate, reducing plastic & taking groups to the beach for surfing instead of in individual cars. For more on our sustainability click here: Sustainable retreats.
Wake up to a beautiful sunrise in Portugal while getting ready for our first Yoga class, breathing in the fresh ocean air. After that either enjoy loads of fun on the beach or pamper yourself with wellness sessions at the retreat. At sunset relax during a restorative Yoga session. And finally, eat yummy and healthy food based on a vegan/vegetarian diet. Pure fulfillment at Yogaion Retreats. Come and join us to feel this amazing experience.
With love,
Shaini Verdon

"Just perfect"

I did the yoga+nourish retreat and it was just perfect, relaxing and restorative. Shaini is a great teacher with a lot of knowledge and a very warm personality, making your stay unforgettable. The house, the food and the treatments were fantastic too. If you want to improve your yoga and have a relaxing time surrounded by great nature and great people, this is exactly what you should do.
