Yoga on the beach is a great way to start or end your day. Come an experience an amazing sunrise or sunset while you practice yoga and meditation on the beautiful Praia Azul (blue beach) beach in Vila do Conde, Porto, Portugal. Overlooked by the 17th-century fortress (Forte Sao Joao), Praia Azul is one of the most beautiful beaches in the North of Portugal and despite being one of the most visited beaches in the North, Praia Azul can feel remote and almost unspoiled. It is here that the National Surfing Hope Championships is held so depending on the day, you will see some amazing ocean waves. You will practice yoga and meditation taking in the energy of the sunrise or sunset while you listen to the sound of the ocean. You will move your body mindfully and intelligently to renew, recharge and reawaken your sense of wonder again. You will spend some time reconnecting with the mind, body and breath in the best way possible, connecting with nature. Come with an open mind, open heart and open to have fun! I've been on a journey since I left New York City in 2014 and finally made Portugal my home. I've been living in Portugal for 2 years now and I love sharing my experience with others.
