Smile. Live by water. Play among friends. Welcome to Karuna - surf yoga life. We are a passion driven, personal, small scale company, specializing in simple easy going surf and yoga retreats in Costa da Caparica in Portugal. Just because that's the magic we want to share. Just because we believe that the sun is a little brighter and the days a little lighter when you spend them sharing what you love. Come. Join the magic.


Keepin' it simple

Because the only good suit is a wetsuit


Are you curious about walking on water? Are you already comfortable in the waves? Are you somewhere in-between? Don't worry, the coast of Caparica offers something for everyone. With spacious beach breaks, there are plenty of waves for our beginners and intermediates. When you surf with us, we give you a personal experience where we keep you safe while we try to challenge you as well. The tides and the waves are our best teachers, and our local head surf coach Pedro will help you develop your surfing skills for sure.

It is so much more than just stretching


We normally start the day with a soft yoga class before breakfast, but don't worry; we know you are on vacation and the importance of not having to set the alarm too early. Most of our classes are Sama yoga. Sama yoga is a gentle form of yoga that will support and respect you and your body and that suits all levels and ages. Supporting you both physically and emotionally it will leave you at ease on the mat. It has a playful and creative side and we will have fun together. And, the combo with the surf...let us tell you this should not be underestimated.

Our private surf villa with pool and garden


During your vacation with us, you will stay in our surf villa. Designed by a local architect and built in the 50's it is a one of a kind place in Caparica. You will have access to your own private garden and pool, and the beach is just 5 minutes away. The area is quiet and it is easy to feel at home here. You can stay in one of our double rooms, or hang out in the pool house which sleeps four persons. The house will take good care of you, we promise you that. Space is limited to 12 persons. Let us welcome you home.

This place will steal your heart and keep it


Ah, where to start? This little beach town with the unpolished architecture and sweetest people around. This little beach town with the many local cafés and bakeries. The seemingly endless coastline with pristine beaches. The closeness to Lisbon (20 min by car). And, the sunsets, you cannot leave out the sunsets. Honestly, these are one of the reasons we fell in love with this place and decided to do these surf and yoga retreats here. Caparica is just one of theses places that keep growing on you once you get to know this place. Really. Surely. Truly.

Welcome to join us in Caparica. Take a look at what we have to offer and please don't hesitate to get in touch with questions or inquiries. We will do our best to tailor to your needs and wishes.
