About Yogaion


Peace and tranquility in one of the best eco retreats Portugal has to offer, only 450 meters from the stunning beach of Meia Praia, surrounded by nature. Yogaion, located on the south coast of Portugal, throughout the year offers a lovely mix of different retreats with sustainable practices always combined with Iyengar Yoga organised by certified teacher Shaini Verdon.  The main retreat is the Yoga, Surf & Nourish retreat which contains 3 different packages: Yoga & Surf / Yoga, Surf & Nourish  / Yoga & Nourish. The Surf package is for the ones that want to have a full week of Yoga & Surfing, getting the most out of both . In the second package there will be one less day of surf so that there is time to relax the muscles & join a great cooking workshop. The last one, Yoga & Nourish, is the complete pamper package with massages, a cooking workshop & a mindfulness session.


Once a year there is also the very  special Women's wisdom Yoga & Surf retreat. This retreat is an amazing women's getaway hosted by a variety of women who all excel in their field, it's for all us women to get back in contact with our most divine cycle. 


"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.

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

Yogaion always tries it 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,
