Join Todd Skoglund, owner of South Boston Yoga, for 6 days of Adventure & Yoga in the Azores, Portugal! The Azores are a magical, volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and endless outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and under 6 hours from Boston.
Our days will include always optional yoga and movement classes with Todd, as well as hikes to some of the most incredible vistas on the island, soaks in natural hot springs, and exploration of neighboring towns and beaches.
There will also be plenty of time for relaxation amongst the beautiful gardens and fruit orchards of Quinta Minuvida, our home for the week. All meals are included, and will be nourishing, fresh, and delicious, so that you can get a true taste of Azorean fare.

Meet Your Instructor -
Todd Eric Skoglund:
From a host of various athletic activities and movement modalities, including various martial arts, calisthenics, gymnastics and acrobatics, I fell in love with the practice of yoga for its ability to ground me in the present moment, uniting my internal world with external experience. My teaching focuses on moving from one's center through fun and creative sequencing, movement, and isometric and eccentric muscle engagement. Rather than teaching "stretching" or focusing on flexibility I encourage whole-body strength building and mobility throughout the practice. Each class is taught with light-hearted purpose and with great respect for my students' health and safety.
Todd co-owns South Boston Yoga, where he teaches all levels classes, advanced asana and co-directs teacher trainings. Todd also teaches classes at Equinox Clubs in Boston and workshops around the US and abroad.
