The Bodhi Sessions are the truest reflection of our company: combining everything we love, believe in, and want to share with others — and creating the pinnacle of Bodhi Surf. Sessions are Bodhi Surf’s answer to the traditional surf and yoga retreat: set-date, week-long, pre-planned getaways to experience the pristine southern Pacific region of Costa Rica! Their aim is to teach, inspire, and re-energize, all while giving you ample time on your surfboard and yoga mat! In addition, retreat dates are fixed and guaranteed to run, but spaces are limited, so sign-up early and prepare yourself for an unforgettable time.Bahia Ballena, Costa Rica

What to Expect

With Bodhi Sessions, our flagship vacation option, we’ve considered everything — all that is included (or not) is deliberate and aims to provide you with the best experience. During your Bodhi Session, you will participate in a total of eight surf and/or yoga sessions: three surf lessons, three yoga classes, and two of your choosing (surf or yoga). Furthermore, you will be enjoying all of this in a very unique setting, which is home to our quaint community, our vast sandy beaches, and our stunning virescent scenery.

On top of your surfing and yoga sessions, you will also have the opportunity to take a guided walk around the community of Bahia Ballena and learn about our community’s history, development, and challenges; hike to a local waterfall and take in the lush jungle scenery; and enjoy a movie night with members of Bodhi Surf! Daily breakfasts and two dinners are included in your week-long stay in Bahia Ballena to provide a sense of sharing and community at the Bodhi Lodge, while also giving you the opportunity to sample the local fare and support our community’s economy.

Bodhi Sessions are community engaged yoga and surfing retreats designed for travelers who want to disconnect from their routine in an idyllic setting and spend time “recharging their batteries” in nature. The week’s main aims are to keep you actively experiencing the area of Uvita so you may return home feeling physically fit and mentally rejuvenated, as well as to provide you with a variety of opportunities to meet new people and have new experiences, so that upon your departure, you will have many new connections and wonderful memories to take with you!Costa Rica yoga and surfing retreats

Our family of six had the best vacation we’ve ever had thanks to the great people at Bodhi Surf. We’re ready to go back again. The surfing was so beautiful and so much fun for the whole family. With their excellent instruction, we all were able to surf, the yoga was simply AMAZING (please don’t miss the yoga), the help with planning our trip and the general professionalism made everything so easy.

Costa Rica surfing and yoga retreatsWhy Choose Bodhi Sessions

At their core, Bodhi Sessions are retreat-style vacations with fixed dates and predetermined itineraries, which ensures you a week full of activity with all the travel logistics arranged so you don’t have to worry or figure it out on your own. They give you the option of independence while also providing different opportunities for group dynamics. Sessions are also a great choice if you want to eliminate the stress of driving to the Uvita area on your own, and would prefer to either be on foot or rent a bike in town — keeping in mind that if you decide you need a car it’s also possible to rent once you’ve arrived at Bodhi Surf.

Bodhi Sessions are surfing and yoga retreats designed for travelers who love spending time being active in the outdoors, want to meet like-minded individuals and share great conversations and experiences, are interested in learning about a whole host of subjects ranging from the ocean to themes of development and growth in rural Pacific Costa Rica to responsible tourism, and aren’t afraid to challenge themselves!Costa Rica surf and yoga retreats
