Lyra did things to me that should never be done to a man (and definitely not before dinner). Welcome to Portyogal.
Portugal’s popularity for golfers is well established but more and more of us have been discovering its other activities.
Among them tennis, with lessons from Judy Murray, and the Iberian favourite padel, a hybrid of tennis and squash.
Sun, steak and sardines
With all that sun, steak and sardines (and I can do sibilant alliteration all day) you’ll be wanting to swim it off.
Yes, and the ancient practices of yoga too. It’s not called Portyogal for nothing!
If you don’t know your Downward Dog from your Cobra, and if you do, then you’ll want to know you’re with experts
And our old friends at Travel Department know their Portugal and know their yoga.
My type of TD
TD offers a guided trip where your vinyasa/hatha practice will be varied and themed each day.
Your MOONS yoga teacher will help you focus on slow, mindful movement with stronger holds.
And if you’re very good teacher will allow you out to take in Sagres.
The beer? Yes, but also the region.
With walks along the coast, the sun, surf and siestas.
The TD Algarve Yoga Holiday is from €639pp including three nights’ B&B with all yoga activities.
Depart May 5 and October 13.
And so since you’ve been practicing your yoga over lockdown you’ll be ready to go.
