WHO WE ARE
Yoga teacher & surfer
Originally from Barcelona, Spain, Lucia decided to have a lifestyle change and move away from the busy city life and her job in advertising to follow her dreams and her two passions, yoga & surf.
Through yoga you can connect with the present moment. When you go to the mat you become aware of your whole body moving, the connection of the breath with the movement, increased awareness of the sounds, feelings and the fluctuations of the mind.
She realized how much yoga compliments surfing. How it brings you to where you are, to the present moment. It evokes a powerful connection between yourself and nature allowing you to enjoy the present moment.
With a Yoga instructor certification, Lucia is a Vinyasa Flow teacher here in Algarve. Her style is a Vinyasa Flow with some focus towards surfing, combining shoulder stretches, hip openers, core strength and also guiding meditation and Pranyama (breathing techniques) to bring you to the present moment, calm your mind and help to get all the benefits of breathing.
“The Ocean and Yoga can heal you, just be in the present moment and enjoy it”
Surfer & foodie
Katha was born and raised in Germany, and has always been a lover of sports especially surf and nature.
Her passion for travelling started as a young adult, at 18 Katha grabbed her backpack and went off to Australia looking for new adventures. At this time she started surfing and it was then she recognized she wanted to follow her dreams and live close to the ocean.
After graduating from a sports degree at University in Germany she was drawn to Portugal to work for 2 months in a surf camp. From there it was an easy decision as she fell in love with the country, natural beauty, people and lifestyle and decided to stay. Sagres has been Katha´s home now for 4 years now.
Surfing has become a really important part of her life. In the water nothing else matters, it´s just you, the waves and your friends. This feeling of freedom means everything to her. Surfing connects you with the present moment, nature and with herself.
"We are Jungle Mango. We follow our dreams and we want you be a part of them too."
