Bodhi Sessions: Surfing & Yoga Retreat

Bodhi Sessions are the result of our five years of being in business and encompass the “best of” Bodhi Surf School. Sessions include 6 nights at the Bodhi Surf Lodge, one night of lodging in San Jose, daily breakfast at the lodge, welcome and goodbye dinners, three surf sessions, three yoga classes, two of your choosing (either surf or yoga), a guided community walking tour, a visit to a local waterfall, a free day, transportation to and from San Jose, and a Bodhi Surf t-shirt. Surf lessons include park entrance fees as well as fruit during each lesson and transportation to included activities. There will also be movie nights!

Inner Surfer Vacation Package

This package is for someone who is very interested in improving their surf ability in one week, and is designed to “awaken your inner surfer”. It includes 6 nights at the Bodhi Surf Lodge, one night in San Jose, a car rental, eight surf lessons, a guided community walking tour, Bodhi Surf t-shirt, and park entrance fees and fruit on surf lesson days. It is important to note that no meals or yoga classes are included, and since the lodge is designed for stays that begin on Saturday and end on Friday, there will be an additional fee if your arrival date is on a day other than Saturday. Available lodging options include Bungalow Gratitud and Bungalow Espiritu.

Holistic Yoga & Surf Package

This package offers you four surf and four yoga classes, giving a good balance between the two activities, which is beneficial to both! It includes 6 nights at the Bodhi Surf Lodge, one night in San Jose, a car rental, four surf lessons, four yoga classes, a guided community walking tour, Bodhi Surf t-shirt, and park entrance fees and fruit on surf lesson days. It is important to note that no meals are included, and since the lodge is designed for stays that begin on Saturday and end on Friday, there will be an additional fee if your arrival date is on a day other than Saturday. Available lodging options include Bungalow Gratitud and Bungalow Espiritu.

Bodhi Sessions vs Vacation Packages

Bodhi Sessions: Community Engaged Surfing and Yoga Retreats

Sessions are set-date, retreat-style stays that include surfing, yoga, and community engagement. They start and end on Saturdays and are guaranteed to run no matter how many people sign up. We have designed them to have what is a perfect balance between structure and flexibility, to include just enough physical activity to make you feel good but not as though you’ve overdone it, and to give you solid exposure to our little community and the Pura Vida way of life.

Vacation Packages

Vacations are week-long stays that allow you to focus on improving your surfing or enjoying a balance of surf and yoga. There are two vacation options, the Inner Surfer package which has eight surf sessions, and the Holistic Yoga & Surf package which has four surf and four yoga classes. They also highlight community engagement and environmental awareness. As the lodge is designed for stays that begin on Saturday and end on Friday, there is an additional fee if your arrival date is on a day other than Saturday, and the designated lodging options include Bungalow Gratitud and Bungalow Espiritu.Family surfing vacation
