Prenatal Yoga is a great way to prepare for child birth. Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for you and your baby.


Benefits are

      • Improved sleep
      • Reduced stress and anxiety
      • Increased strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for child birth
      • Decreased lower back pain, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath
      • Prenatal yoga can also help you meet and bond with other pregnant women and prepare for the stress of being a new parent



Program:

Besides the daily prenatal yoga and meditation, we will gather in a circle around the fire place or at the beach. 

Depending on the group, classes will be taught in English, German, or both. All levels are welcome.

 

After breakfast, everyone is free to do what they love to do. Whether it is beach time, visting local sites, reading a good book or simply remembering who you are when you’re not absorbed by the flurry of family, work, and life.

The unique atlantic ocean breeze will be your steady companion. No matter what you do, it will provide you with freshness, salt and high levels of iodine and thereby magically rejuvenate you from the inside out. 

 

Schedule:  The motto is "Take it easy darling, you are pregnant!"

What else to do:


  • Enjoying all the beautiful beaches in the area: Monte Clerigo, Arrifana, Amoreira, Bordeira and more
  • Visit Sagres, Lagos or any other local sights.
  • Go for lunch and dinner at some of the great restaurants in the area.
  • Stroll around the lovely little village of Aljezur.
  • Visit a local pottery barn and bring home some beautiful Portuguese tableware.
  • Make a trip to the village of Monchique to enjoy their incredible day spa (highly recommended)
  • Take on some local beach activities according to your individual fitness level and pregancy trimester
  • Just take it easy, relax and connect with your "fellow preggos". Besides the mental and pysical benefits of prenatal yoga, this is one of the  beautiful side effects of practicing prenatal yoga. You connect and bond with other women, who share the same feelings, thoughts, questions and anxieties. Out of experience, some of these connections will last way beyond the this retreat.
  • Please note, that reaching the sights in the area requires a (rental) car.


How to get there:


  • Closest airport is Faro, which is about a good hour drive by car. If you choose to fly to Lisbon, you need to consider about a 3 hour drive to Aljezur.
  • To reach Salthouse Portugal a car is needed. You will find all known car rentals at Faro Airport.
  • I am happy to arrange car sharing between the participant. In needed a ride up to 3 people.
