What is Offline Portugal

Offline Portugal is a Movement, a revolution, a mind-set.

Surf, Yoga, Music & Magic in Portugal.

Offline Portugal is a community movement with a mission to take the power back to people. We aim to disconnect you not only from your smartphone but from an automatic-pilot state, find the magic of being present, breathe and reconnect to what is more important in life.

We are a movement of awareness in which we gather information and experiences with Surf, Yoga, Music and Workshops for you to know about the benefits of putting ourselves into “pause” mode, essential stage for us TO SLOW down our mind .

This way we can experience and understand what is our Truth and achieve our higher consciousness.

What is our story

NEXT HOLIDAY EXPERIENCES: 19-27 Apr, 4-11 May, 25 May-1 June,8-15 June,6-13 July, 3-10 Aug, 7-15 Sep, 28 Sep- 5 Oct

We launched Offline Portugal 3 years ago after quitting our corporate Jobs and lifestyle in London. During this time we worked intensively in our first Project: The Offline House in Arrifana, Southwest beachside of Portugal, near Aljezur. We met more than 3000 people staying with us and we share not only a house but friends, moments of joy and dispair, laughter but most of all we share our time, connecting together.

Connecting with each other, the nature around us but with ourselves in the first place. Offline is not just leaving the phone at reception. These days we live in, leaving your phone behind means leaving your confort zone: You stop being in contact with your friends and Family, with your work, with your digital self and you step into the zone of the present moment. We choose Mindfulness for a living.

Why do we do this?

Because we believe if we get to know deeply each and one of us and transform our lives into a more mindful, loving and caring lifestyle the collective consciousness will rise and we can live in a much more sustainable and peaceful world.

We created Offline Portugal because we noticed the way we use our smartphone can interfere with our personal, social and professional relationships and how much impact a simple object can have in our lives. The challenge here is not the smartphone. It's the way we use it- like any other thing in our lives. Bringing awareness to the world is our collective goal. Using our electronic devices in a moderate way so they can't control your freedom is the challenge. We need to understand the power of Disconnectingon a much deeper level to Reconnect to what is really key in our lives.

Why do we do this

Why do we do this?
We created Offline Portugal because we noticed the way we use our smartphone can interfere with our personal, social and professional relationships and how much impact a simple object  can have in our lives.
The challenge here is not the smartphone. It´s the way we use it- like any other thing in our lives. Bringing awareness to the world is our collective goal.
Using our electronic devices in a moderate way so they can´t control your freedom is the challenge. We need to understand the power of Disconnecting on a much deeper level to Reconnect to what is really key in our lives.
By Disconnecting we mean leaving away anything that disturbs your mind from living in the present moment of NOW and the smartphone these days plays a fundamental role on the distraction of the mind- living in fear or worry about the Future or in regrets or frustration of the Past.
We challenge you to switch off from your external world and live in the present moment.

Meet our team

Barbara

Founder, Yoga and Spiritual Teacher & Lightworker

Hi, I am Bárbara, Founder of Offline and you can find me pretty much on any event we are offering here! Born in Lisbon, studied Jazz piano and Architecture and after 6 years in London, some traveling and 11 years of a corporate job I decided to start a new Journey with the Project Offline Portugal.

After a long-term relationship with anxiety and depression on my 20´s I started my Yoga & meditation practice in 2011 through mindfulness. After a few trips to India and specially after my experience with Vipassana and Reiki, my spiritual journey has gone way far from being just a Yoga teacher and my power lies from sharing that with others.

My mission is to spread awareness of who you are, why you are here on Earth and try to connect each and one of you to your own True Self. You can see me on the mat, running around wifi (the dog!…), playing piano, dancing like nobody is watching, surfing or simply having a glass of wine chatting about the Universe for hours.

I loved it so. much here that I extended my stay. I did not miss my phone at all and I think I will start being offline more regularly. I was sad to leave but I also felt lighter, happier and more optimistic.
