Family Surf Retreat
Our family & surf retreat is a week designed for the family who's kids are a bit older and want a bit more activity on their holiday. Just like our regular yoga surf retreats the days are spent together with our wonderful partner surf school Future Surf in the waves, on the beach, and for those parents who feel the weight of the year in their body, Vale da Lama's swimming pool and hammock, provides a more gentle, relaxing option. There are two yoga sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, they will serve both surfers and non surfers, binding the day and the family together. All is enjoyed in the company of other families with Vale da Lama's wonderful food and mind clearing scenery as it's generous backdrop.
This family retreat is thought for those families with kids 10 y/o and up, should you have kids smaller than that as well, Vale de Lama's kind babysitters are offered at an additional cost.
The summer holidays bring the whole family together and while that’s of course wonderful news, it sometimes leaves both parents and kids wondering, hmmm, what now? You need to recharge and they need to have fun but you still want to spend time together.
What about a week in nature, in a permaculture farm, organic meals, supervised children activities during the yoga classes, gardens, pool and farm activities on the premises, the beach 40 minutes walk away (5 minutes by car). Safe without being totally secluded, relaxed but without boring the kids to death.
And with two ‘Yoga for Parents’ classes a day on the menu, you’ll get those sweet little breaks that are so necessary for us parents.
