Vida Pura, located in the Algarve on the Southern coast of Portugal, is a place where the natural beauty of the land is accentuated and sustainability reigns supreme. Everything is reused, recycled, regenerated. Watch this video for a quick sense of place. We’ll practice yoga twice daily, with an emphasis on living the practice in the world, eat three organic meals in community and conversation, and enjoy basking in the sun, swimming in the biological pool, and hanging out in hammocks. In addition to helping to care for the animals on site, we’ll take a donkey trek to a lunch spot on the nearby beach, and stand up paddleboard on the Odeceixe river.
“I like to call it inspiration land,” owner Robin explains, “It’s our wish to give people an opportunity to experience inner peace just being here and at the same time share our idea of living a pure lifestyle, both ethical and eco-friendly.” Yoga is meant to be lived in the world. We’ll explore what it means to be engaged practitioners of yoga against the backdrop of a place that’s truly exemplifying what it means to be aware of one’s impact.
