What you'll do

You'll join me nearby the beach where we will practice yoga and we will quickly assess what kind of yoga is the most relevant to your needs: vinyasa flow, hatha, ashtanga, meditation... We will then get started for a 1-hour session, right on the beach facing the ocean and will conclude the class with stretching and photos :)
We will finish the class by a little picnic with homemade vegan/vegetarian snacks and flavored water + we have the option to go a beach bar nearby :)
Tip: If you book the last session of the day, we will probably have the sun setting right in front of us!
Other things to note
Bring comfortable clothes for the practice and a bottle of water!

I have been a yoga instructor for the past 6 years, specializing in Anti-Gravity aerial yoga, Vinyasa flow and Ashtanga.
All my life the ocean had this power over me of immediate soothing and healing. When I moved in Porto 3 years ago, I was so inspired by the beaches' quality and peace but I wanted to go away from the crowds to be fully in touch with nature to be able to relax and to practice yoga in full mindfulness.
The waves, the noise from the ocean, the feeling of the sand under the towel, the rocks to meditate, the sun setting... all are amazing elements complementing a perfect yoga session. I found a very quiet beach, minutes away from Porto, that is just the perfect spot to practice and be mindful with the perfect scenery.

Where you'll be

You will discover a beach on the other side of Porto (Vila Nova de Gaia), accessible from the center of the town in a few minutes by uber/taxi and lesser known than its counterparts of Matosinhos and Foz.
Imagine long stripes of sand, the waves breaking on the rocks... The beach where I will take you is much wilder than other city beaches and it is right there, facing the sunset, that we will drop our yoga mats.
You'll never forget this view!

The location was great and was a very good practice. Even learnt to (sorta) do a hand stand which was a fantastic bonus! Margaux also brought a snack that she called "energy balls" which were delicious. Was a great end to a great day in Porto. Would highly recommend.

An excellent experience, much better than expected! Margaux is very friendly, and greets you with a warm smile and positive energy. She will then guide you to a beautiful beach some meters away of your meeting point. There she will provide you with a healthy, home-made flavored water and a towel and she will guide you gently through a very grounding, energizing ashtanga yoga session which fits your skills and capabilities. After that, to replenish energy she will give you some homemade, super tasty and very healthy vegan Energy-Balls. She was also very considerate to even ask before if I had any allergy, or any particular preference. If i could give her 10 stars i would have done so! Blindly recommended:)

This was one of the best Yoga classes I‘ve ever had. The beach is beautiful and the sunset was amazing. Margaux is an absolut nice and experienced Yoga teacher and gave me a lot of tips. She really took a lot of time explaining things to me and hold the class even though I was the only one joining at that time. And btw. she makes the best energy balls!! 😀

One thing I loved about Margaux is she creates a magical experience just for you. She helped land my first headstand. And even capture the beautiful moment😍🇺🇸

The yoga class with Margaux was simply amazing!! The location was wonderful - a very quiet beach with a view to die for and the calming sounds of the waves in front of us. Margaux is a lovely person and she provided us with a custom-made yoga practice. Also, she brought homemade brownies, which were very nice! Would definitely recommend!
