Travel information

 

It is recommended that you

 

  1. book your flight to Lisbon (from Gatwick) as soon as possible.
  2. You select the recommended flights
  3. You join the transfer bus

 

Recommended EasyJet FLIGHTS

 

Outbound : SAT 31st May 2019 Dep Gatwick 17:30 Arrive Lisbon 20:10

 

Inbound: SAT 15th  June 2019 Dep Lisbon 20:35 and Arrive Gatwick 23:10

 

I’ve chosen these flights because not only are they the cheapest, but they give you the flexibility and option to choose to organise yourself a visit to Lisbon city centre either side of the flights. I.e. you could choose to arrive friday 30th and spend the night in the city and then just get the subway back to the airport (15 min trip) to meet the group for the transfer on the Saturday 9th evening.

 

The Transfer would be arranged to meet the group at the airport around 8:45pm. The cost has been included into your overall course fees.

 

Given the late time of the flight, this mini-bus will be the best value option and you will also benefit from sharing transport and transfers with fellow trainees.

 

An alternative to the group airport transfer would be to take the metro to Lisbon City Centre Stop Sete Rios, to the bus station which is near Lisbon Zoological.  Take the bus to the town Santarem and from there get a 25 min taxi or a local bus to Meio in Alecanede

 

Airport to Lisbon Sete Rios Lisbon Metro 25 mins (2 EUR) (but give yourself time to find it and get a ticket) or 15 mins in taxi or Uber (less than 15 EUR)

 

Lisbon Sete Rios to Santarem Bus https://www.rede-expressos.pt/tickets

(70 minutes) (6 EUR)

 

Santarem to Alcanede Local Bus http://www.rodotejo.pt/   (30 minutes)

or a taxi (25 mins)

 

The third transfer option to the venue is a private taxi but this costs 120-140 EUR

 

Gatwick and home: Nearer the time, we will connect all the trainees via the real flow yoga FB group so that you can potentially organise lift-shares on share transport to and from Gatwick. Notice that the inbound return flight lands late so trains may no longer be an option.

history of yoga includes tracing the origins of yoga and asking the question, can we really speak of such a thing as a yoga philosophy?! We will provide a broad overview of the key influential yogic texts and you will be able to weave history into the presence of your classes.

philosophy of yoga involves a comparative study of classical and tantric traditions. We will explore key scripture, samples from Rg Veda and Upanisads, then more in depth study of the Bhagavad Gita, Sutras and the Hatha Pradipika. We will also delve into Tantra taking a look at the Vijnana Bhairava.
