Surfing & Yoga Adventure for Women
SURFING — The ultimate experience of mindfulness and being in the “now,” while feeling totally connected to body, breathing, and the wondrous healing nature of the Ocean. I have always wanted to integrate my deep love for surfing and the ocean with my chosen profession of teaching Yoga. This is what the Yoga and Surf Adventure for Women is all about!

WHAT THIS RETREAT IS ALL ABOUT!
What To Expect
We will create a safe learning environment for women to explore the magic of surfing* — whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced intermediate. We will have professional instructors from a highly acclaimed Sayulita surf school teaching us in small groups (not more than 4:1 students-to-instructor ratio) for four days (two days, then a rest day, then two more days).
The yoga that I will be teaching will be focused on strengthening the muscles needed for effective paddling (and stretching them at the end of the day after our surf outings), cultivating better balance, and learning good physical positioning and technique for the most efficient and rewarding surf experiences. This will be a sensational adventure!!
*Learning Stand-up paddle surfing instead of traditional surfing is an option; you can choose which you prefer.
