Finding a place like the West Coast of the Algarve  in Portugal is like finding a secret paradise or an Oasis in the middle of a wide desert. We all had this feeling when we first arrived here. We felt the real powerful nature of Portugal and the strong energy of the Atlantic Ocean as we watched the  waves from far away and finish here in these shores of Portugal.

The surf yoga retreat is held in the beautiful wild southwest of Portugal, in the mythical town of Sagres. You are going to be sleeping in a wonderful 4 design hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean .  A perfect place for this retreat to relax and enjoy the local outdoor activities and of course to experience nature to the full, starting with the sunrise which you can watch  from your room – It rises just in front of the bay window behind the protected islands of Martinhal.  If you are more of a sunset person you can either bike or drive towards the famous Cape Saint Vincent and watch from there the most amazing sunset of the western world.  Almost like an island, the south west coast of the Algarve in Portugal Europe, is a narrow peninsula surrounded by the Ocean from west to south.

Our Philosophy

Life is a great ocean of potentials. We are sailing on this ocean and we are the captain of our own ship. In order to set our destination and to sail where we want to sail, we have to maintain our vessel in good condition, we need to know the workings of our ship, the workings of the tides, the currents and the weather.

So too must we know the workings of our mind in order to create and to live fully. If we want to learn we have to pay attention. Attention, awareness or consciousness is something that we tend to lack during most of our lives. if we want to feel the connection with the Moment, the NOW, or God, the Creator or what ever way one looks at it, or whatever one wants to call it we have to become sensitive and conscious. We are a part of universal creation just as creation is a part of us. When we awaken we can flow and create harmoniously with the universal creative force.

We are conscious, sensitive and creative beings that have the power and the right to decide our state of mind. We experience this life with both our body and mind.  If they are healthy and 'correctly tuned', a harmonious life unfolds in and around us. If we are unaware of the workings of them and live with  unconsciously, we will be victims of all the negative states our thoughts and actions produce in our daily life. We can train our mind and body to become more aware and more conscious about our lives and the reality it produces. During this surf yoga retreat in Portugal you will develop a more content, creative and peaceful state of mind for a more enjoyable  and connected life.


Our Passion: Yoga, surf & hiking in the beautiful wild nature of SW Portugal.

The three of us share the same passion for this beautiful place and so, one day we dreamt of designing a retreat that would combine all of these activities that we love in this very special place, the wild south west Portugal. 

We combined our different skills in activities that complement each other along with a healthy diet within a luxurious and yet simple ocean view 4
design hotel. Pure flow motions was born!

It has been pure joy, teaching and sharing this passion with all our guests.

Michael Bijker is from the Netherlands and has been traveling around the world encountering more knowledge for his passion for body and mind work, especially Mediation, Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai-chi, Surfing and other techniques.
After his traveling and selfdevelopment he found this piece of paradise in Europe to be the ideal place to set up this kind of retreats with surfing yoga meditation and other activities. Focusing on the importance of connecting the mind and the body throughout the awarness that you can get from mind and body exercises helping each person to get to know it's real nature and essence, helping each person with a wonderful technique to free your mind.

Michael is a certified 800hr YogaAlliance teacher with a yoga therapy certification from Paramanand institute of yoga sciences & research,Indore.  The yoga taught  during the yoga course in this week will be in the styles of Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa and mindfulness to really be able to deepen your practice whether you are practising for years allready or complete beginner.

Nicolau da Costa is half Portuguese, half English. Having travelled around the world, Nicolau's passion drew him back to this part of the world in Europe where he was brought up in order to dedicate himself to activities that are more directly linked to nature. He has experienced a wide range of activities connected with the ocean and the land, as sailing, diving, professional fishing, surfing, natural bee keeping and organic agriculture, landscape arquitecture and Nature Guiding. His best skill is his deep connection with Nature and his local knowledge of this territory of Portugal. Because of his intimate relationship with nature he is the right person to be guided by through this landscape . Nicolau chose to return to his roots making it his home again. His greatest pleasure as a nature Guide is to share the beauty and secrets of this magnificient landscape with other people, in a sustainable, responsible and generous way.

Marta Mealha was born and raised in Portugal. Originaly from the centre of the Algarve, she as been coming to surf to this area since a very young age. 11 years ago she decided to move defenitively to the Natural Park of Vicentina Coast (Southwest Algarve Portugal) and set up a surf school so she could live within the ocean surroundings, live among unspoilt nature and, of couse, to SURF! So she has been a surf teacher for the last 10 years aswell as a local surf guide. With a wide experience and knowledge of the local surf breaks she will be the best person to get you in touch with the ocean and help you enjoy the purest form of surfing -  with your body or with a surfboard. Together with yoga and nature walks, surfing is a great aspect in order to create a blanced mind and body during the retreats in Portugal.

With the help of our specialized crew, you are led through the natural elements in Portugal, as Water and Land; an experience which has something to offer to each one of us.
The Pure Flow Motions surf yoga retreats are designed for people that are looking for an insight on their life in a harmonious way, treating both body and mind to become more awake and aware of their lives. In a natural environment our senses can awaken and our body begins to feel more free to experience some new challenges.

Surfing is a full experience with nature as well as a therapy. For us surfing is the sport that is more connected with one of our favourite elements, Water: the Ocean. Feeling the energy of the waves and understanding that you can use this to have fun and  to enjoy this ride with the help of a board is a unique feeling of freedom. This area is perfect for a surf yoga retreat in Portugal. Ideal for surfing, weather you just start to surf or surf for a long time already. The retreat is both beginners and advanced surfers.

Yoga exercises are the essential elements  to connect  with your mind, body and Nature. The yoga will be in the styles of Iyengar, Yin, Shivananda and Mindfulness. In the mornings the yoga sessions will be more active to get you ready to ride the waves during the day, get more aware of your body, achieve more flexibility and go beyond your limits.

In the afternoon more relaxing and restorative to give you the necessary  relaxation and inner peace just before a great vegetarian meal and a restorative sleep.

This surf yoga retreat is lik a intense yoga course in which you will deepen your understanding whether you are a complete beginner or if you have been practising for many years allready .

Michael Bijker will do the yoga and meditation classes on the retreat. He first got into contact with yoga in 1999 and since then has developed a rich understanding of the practice. He is a 800hr YA certified teacher with a yoga therapy certificate.

Nature walks. The best way to really experience the Natural Park in which this retreat takes place, is hiking through it at a gentle rythm. This surf yoga retreat in the south west tip of Europe will get you fully connected with nature in the most purest form, hiking along the cliffs, valleys and hills. We choose amazing trails to reveal some of the Algarve's most secret places. You´ll get the joy from walking on these breathtaking paths guided by a local nature guide that  provides you with valuable information about it's unique flora and fauna, geology and local culture of SW Portugal in the most southwestern point of Europe.

Meditation is extremely helpful for a conscious and free mind. Training it in a positive way makes you more ready for your daily challenges and your look into life will be broader and connected to the LIFE.

This reviewer told us :

You guys are wonderful, complementary dream team! I came here with no expectations for the yoga and surfing and you opened up a whole new world for me. We walked through ourselves during yoga and meditation and we walked through nature with an open mind. You made us come more in contact with ourselves and with nature and the ocean. I was amazed by the thrill of surfing. I hope I can come back soon to ride the waves of our mind and the ocean with you guys again! Keep the good work! Love you!

This reviewer told us :

Thank you Michael, Marta, and Nicolau! This retreat was more than what I expected. A perfect mix of good energies, mindfulness and sport. A full program with some moments of freedom and relax. The hotel was super comfortable, very beautiful, quiet and contemporary. The view was amazing and the yoga lessons every morning and evening were real moment of pleasure.I keep practicing in Paris every morning (for surfing and hiking in the city it's more difficult !) I hope you will continue this retreat every year. Enjoy your winter!
