The Portuguese Azores Islands are a magical, volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and endless outdoor activities. They are located in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1,000 miles off the coast of Portugal! ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN! For all the details (not all details could be listed below) and photos, please click here: *Discover the Island* Our week will include opportunities for deep connection with the senses in nature. There is no better to get to know and feel a place than through locals. We partner with local guides to explore the island and aid you in your journey of self-discovery. Discover some of the most pristine corners of the island during our hikes. Breathe and feel the breeze on your skin, smell the mineral-rich soil, step on the black sand beaches and verdant green hillsides and taste the ocean air. You'll also have free time for your own adventure or exploration. For those real outdoor enthusiasts, flights on SATA/Azores Airlines include a free piece of checked sporting gear - so you can take a surfboard or a bike along for free! Love adrenaline? Ledge jump or rapel with a canyoning or coasteering excursion, or opt to commune with nature on horseback. *Yoga & Mindfulness* Deepen your yoga practice: Each day will begin with optional meditation, followed by a refreshing morning yoga flow. On some days, we will offer a second yin/gentle slow flow class to help us restore. The mindfulness doesn't stop in the yoga studio. We will be offering meditations and mindful walks in nature, as well as opportunities to reflect and connect with yourself on a regular basis. Additionally we will host two specially workshops, the themes will be decided by the interests from the group.
