Luxury Yoga Getaway
Algarve, Portugal
September 11-17, 2024

Join Laurel Attanasio and Carrie Morgan for another amazing seaside luxury retreat!

This adventure will take place in the Algarve Region of Portugal, the country’s southern stunning coastline, where sandy golden beaches, hidden grottos and dramatic limestone pillars will take your breath away.

 

Explore beautiful landscapes. Enjoy fabulous food and wine. Venture to secluded beaches and simply relax poolside at your fully-staffed private boutique hotel.

Why is this adventure like no other?

This 6 night/ 7 day getaway will take place in the authentically charming village of Tavira, located in the south east of the Algarve. We will be surrounded by winding cobblestone streets, a hilltop castle, stunning coastlines as well as the most important nature reserve in Southern Portugal, Ria Formosa Nature Park. We will enjoy an extended Summer relaxing seaside and poolside. We will hike the coastline as well as sail along the Atlantic Ocean allowing us to see this beautiful region from different perspectives. Our luxury getaway also includes a ride in a tuk tuk for a wine tasting and tapas tour of Tavira.

The Destination

Only 30 minutes to the Spain border, Tavira is one of the most eastern villages of the Algarve. Since this quaint village is a bit beyond many of the most visited attractions, Tavira tends to be a less-touristy, off the beaten path location. However, the winding cobblestone streets are filled with restaurants, bars and artisanal shops making it extremely lively, yet authentic. Located on the River Gilão and connected by a seven-arched Roman bridge where you can view a Moorish castle on the hilltop, it is easy to recognize that many cultures have chosen beautiful Tavira as their home over the centuries. Also, it is surrounded by the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, which provides protected waterways and secluded golden beaches allowing for relaxing and peaceful days. Take a short tuk tuk ride to the beach and/or ferry to find your own oasis.

Where You'll Stay

Now you will find her on her mat, playing tennis, hiking, and spending time with her Portugese Water Dog, Grappa. In 2004, Carrie left a job as a talent agent in NYC and moved out to Pennsylvania. Carrie entered into her first teacher training in 2006 with Cyndi Lee at OM Yoga Center in NYC. She found connection with her teachers, Erich Schiffman and Leslie Kaminoff. Frequent trips to NYC, studying at Kula Yoga Project and Laughing Lotus, helped her discover not only a love of flow but of anatomy. In 2016, Carrie began collaborating with Dr Chloe Costigan, DPT. They are now co-founders of MoveRight Method Yoga, a yoga practice that utilizes the tenets of physical therapy exercises to build strength, flexibility and awareness for a safe & sustainable practice. To practice Flow with CMY is to explore alignment based, core-deep, sweaty Vinyasa that synchronizes the body and breath as poetry in motion. Carrie excels at intuitive, athletic, playful sequencing.  To learn more about Carrie, please visit her site, carriemorganyoga.com.
