The Surf & Yoga week is…
…suitable for everyone of 23 years and older. Experience is not required. But if you already have experience, this week will significantly help improving your yoga and/or surfing skills. The ‘retreat’ is similar to the all-in surf week. Besides surfing lessons there is a full yoga program focused on body strength and flexibility. We have a comfortable bed available for you, a big breakfast buffet every morning and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen to prepare a wonderful diner at night. Finding relaxation is not difficult in our lounge garden with (heated) swimming pool, in one of the bean bags while using free WiFi and at the daily camp fire at night drinking cold beers. There aren’t more ingredients needed to make this holiday in the Pura Vida Lodge one you will remember for a long time!

Every lesson starts with a warming up, following breathing exercises and several poses which improve your stability and flexibility. It ends with relaxation. An teaches you how to stretch before and after surfing to keep your body in top shape.
Chakra, TRUST & SUP yoga workshop
The SUP YOGA WORKSHOP
A combination of stand up paddling and yoga – is the perfect match between surfing and yoga. We first practice on land in an introduction lesson to get more comfortable before we hit the water with the SUP.
In this time and age more and more people seem to be dealing with burn-outs or other unexpected bumps in the road. Often this is derrived from misplaced expectations/ feelings of responsibility and social pressure. This however, leads us inward to question what is important and how we get to improve the way we perform in the world. One of the core elements of performance is trust. In this workshop we will discover where we need boundaries and where we can connect more for a healthy relationship to the world that surrounds us.
