Surf & Yoga Weekend Retreats

Contemplation meets Exhilaration

Yoga is learning to control your inner force.

Surfing is learning to control a force of nature.

It’s a powerful combination.

Explore these two experiences in one of the world’s perfect settings – Victoria’s Stunning Surf Coast.

Align the power of the ocean with your inner core and poise as you harness an external force and ride your waves to the shore.

We supply all the gear, coaching and support.

You bring a sense of adventure, fun and a willingness to have a go.

In the evenings, relax and enjoy delicious home-cooked delights.

“This was just what I needed… a chance to blow out the cobwebs, have some fun and reconnect with nature and me.”

Mary Evans, Marketing Professional
