This trip has been so popular in the past, that I am doing it twice in 2017!  I will be escaping to Portugal in June and in September, so there are two chances for you to come along.  

Join me and my amazing co-hosts Natalie Fox in June and Phoebe Greenacre in September for a week of learning to surf, yoga in beautiful spaces, stand up paddle boarding, delicious food, sunset cocktails, exploring the cutest town where we stay, relaxation, sunshine, laughter and

good vibes only!

  • 4 Surf Lessons: includes wetsuits, boards, and instruction.  This is the perfect place to learn to surf! You will be taught by local, professional  surf instructors with a bunch of girls around you who are also learning in this safe, supportive environment! We are lucky to have a big wave rider and 3 time Portugese National Long Board Champion as our instructors!  These guys know their stuff when it comes to surf!  There is also an optional 5th class included if you choose to surf instead of the Lisbon excursion.

You don’t like to be with groups of people

We will be spending time together, you need to want to make new friends and soak up this time with other amazing women.  That being said, I also appreciate that we all need space for there will be daily free time where you can get some space. 

You are afraid to try new foods, aren’t interested in new cultures, people and experiences

 It can be overwhelming at first when you show up to a new place, but my hope is that you will embrace the food, culture and people. If you do, you will leave with a smile on your face. Please know there will always be healthy food options available and catering to vegetarian is not a problem! 


 You just want to lay by the pool and tan

This trip is for squeezing the most out of each day and making the most of your time in Portugal.  If you love to be active, try new things, but still have daily time to chill- this is perfect for you.  There isn’t a pool at the surf house, but the beach below the house is a 5 minutes walk away. 


You are looking for a detox, cleanse, juicing or weight loss retreat

Nope, this isn’t it.  We are going to eat, we are going to have a beer or cocktail if we feel like it and we will definitely not be going hungry.  There will always be healthy options available and catering for food allergies and preferences isn’t a problem. 



What if I am coming on my own?

Amazing and well done you for having a sense of adventure to come on your own! There are single room options available or I can try to pair you up with another single traveller to share a twin room.  Don’t worry, you won’t be the only one who has come on their own, I always have lots of solo travellers come along. Plus you know me!

What if I haven´t done yoga before, will I be ok?

I think you will enjoy the retreat more if you do some yoga before coming.  Start doing it now- go to class, do videos at home between now and the retreat.  But at the same time, don’t stress -the yoga will be for all levels and abilities.  And, remember, everything is optional, so if yoga isn’t your thing and you’d rather sleep in- it’s up to you!  

Do I have to participate in all the activities?

Nope, it’s totally up to you! You do whatever will make your experience the best for you. 

Is this a detox or cleanse retreat?

No, it isn’t.  You can eat and drink as much as you like.  Breakfast is included everyday. Lunch and dinner is included most days.  You will have a couple meals that aren’t included, where you are free to eat wherever you like and can try the great culinary delights around, so it will be up to you what you want to eat.
