The Surf & Yoga week is…
…suitable for everyone of 21 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 chef preparing the most delicious dinners 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!

Yoga teacher Sasja
Sasja (called Sas), our main yoga teacher this summer, hopes to inspire you through her daily classes and supports her students by bringing more awareness to the breath, body, mind and soul. Her classes are flowing and powerful, creating meditation in movement by uniting breath and movement.
Yoga teacher An
An is our experienced yoga teacher. An will not be present at all times anymore, but will still teach some of the SUP-yoga lessons as well as workshops. She offers a variety of yoga classes. 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.
Yin yoga, partner yoga & SUP yoga
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.
Partner yoga workshop – During this workshop we will be working as a group or with a partner. Partner yoga brings people together through movement, play, breath, touch. It teaches you how to let go and how to do yoga poses in a playful but efficient way. It is a nice way to stretch your body and to experience the poses in a more intens way. While guiding an exercise you might get a better feel for it and for your own body movement. This workshop we will finish off ba doing a long, relaxing “Shavasana”
