All of Ocean & Yoga retreats are designed to enjoy a relaxing and inspiring week with a lot of time in nature, connecting deeply within and with the world around us.

Our Yoga, Meditation & Mindful Eating Retreats focus on our belonging and connection to the earth and our health. We offer an inner cleansing/detox process and a deep journey to the Source of ourselves.

Jana Toepfer
Jana is the founder of Ocean & Yoga, a project in Southern Portugal connecting yoga, surfing and nature reconnection on a beautiful organic farm to live the values of earthiness, community and simplicity.
Her yoga sessions are body & soul-nourishing journeys, drawing from traditional Hatha Yoga, Body-Mind Centering, Feldenkrais, nature wisdom & songs.

"In my sessions, I will share generously with you everything that I have found valuable on my own path of finally falling in love with my own body, for a life well-lived, in full expression, joy, honesty and integrity. We will explore the natural anatomy of the breath, pain-free movement, dance, meditation and deep relaxation exercises, healthy alignment principles respecting the laws of nature, our bodies and our sensations. Everyone is given space to explore their own sensations and truth."
