Yoga teacher Sabine Kampmeier
I am German and have been living part of my time in the beautiful Algarve for many years. I lived in Tavira for a few years and am always fascinated by the beautiful town with over 30 churches and the authentic, sympathetic environment and the scenic beauty of the Ria Formosa. I am tourism consultant & trainer, yoga teacher and mother. I myself discovered yoga more than 10 years ago, first as a wonderful and gentle way to prepare for birth, and later in a moment when work and home life demanded advanced knowledge and techniques for coping with challenges and stress. Since then, I have been fascinated by the all-encompassing yoga philosophy and by what yoga teaches us not only physically but also mentally and at the level of the heart.

For several years I have been certified Integral Yoga® teacher and stress management trainer. I love teaching Integral Hatha Yoga because it integrates the different areas of yoga into a harmonious and comprehensive practice that is accessible to everyone, regardless of health and age.


Our retreat takes place in the 4 * Eco Hotel Vila Galé Albacora in the nature reserve Ria Formosa in the Eastern Algarve near the beautiful town of Tavira

Our hotel
The Eco Hotel Vila Galé Tavira has emerged from the renovation and the loving conversion of a former tuna fishing station. The fishing families lived here until the 1970s during the summer months. The tiny fishermen's apartments have been converted into hotel rooms, some with breathtaking views of the Ria Formosa nature reserve.


The existing small church and the school were preserved. And the former bakery has been converted into a museum, on the upper floor of which is our beautiful yoga room with wooden floor. The hotel literally breathes the tradition of the region and has also transformed itself into an eco-hotel, whose sustainable environmental practices have won numerous awards.

The hotel is located in the middle of the Ria Formosa nature reserve, so guests can go bird watching, cycling or boat tours from the hotel. Facilities include a large swimming pool, two bars and two restaurants, a spa with indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath and massage rooms. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi internet in all areas.

To the dream beaches of Ilha de Tavira, which are as far as the eye can see, it is only a few steps to the jetty of the hotel, from where a boat in a few minutes on the offshore island with endless and very wide sandy beaches: A real paradise. You can reserve a double or a single room as desired. For an extra charge you can book a room with a view of the Ria Formosa.


During the retreat, a daily breakfast buffet is included.

You can also have lunch or dinner at the hotel. The town of Tavira, 5 km away, also offers many authentic and beautiful restaurants.
