Algarve Retreat: Yoga, Meditation & Chakra Balancing - Feb 2020
Would you benefit from a rejuvenating break with a supportive Dru Yoga team on the beach? Do you need some fresh ideas to deepen your yoga and meditation classes? Would you like to gain profound insights about your spiritual practice so you can be of service to the world? Then join our team of Dru Yoga and meditation senior tutors in the warm Algarve sunshine for this profound yoga, meditation and philosophy retreat.
Expand your knowledge of Dru Yoga sequences - old favourites and some new techniques to strengthen your personal practice and teaching repertoire. Our daily sessions on the chakras will revolutionise how you optimise your health, energy, emotional balance and spiritual self-development. There will be sunrise yoga sessions, beach walks and long afternoon siestas to give you the rest and relaxation you deeply deserve. Gain depth in your meditation practice from sessions with meditation masters to bring strength and calmness to your life. Enjoy talks exploring yoga philosophy and enjoy daily lectures and practical sessions to balance your chakras.
This retreat is for Dru Yoga teachers, trainee teachers and Dru students. It will renew and bring a strong grounding to your practice, and take it deeper. We shall also look at how your personal practice is working for you, and if there are any changes or additions that can help you further on your yoga journey.
This retreat is held in the Alfamar Sport and Beach Hotel, a stone’s throw from a beautiful 15 km sandy beach with fabulous red cliffs. It’s the perfect location for long beach walks, sunrise meditations or a refreshing paddle in the sea! We come again and again to this venue due to its excellent location, although the hotel’s accommodation and food are of a simple standard. The food is buffet style, with a variety of fresh salads, local specialities and a vegetarian and vegan option at each meal.

I had such a great time in the algarve, learning more yoga philosophy in depth. I am leaving feeling healthier and fitter in both body and mind.
This retreat exceeded all of my expectations, it has been out of this world. Everything contributed from the sun, the sea, endless golden sands so near to the hotel, lovely rooms, the fabulous teachings, the sense of nurturing and care from the tutors, support staff and fellow students.
