Bodhi Sessions vs Vacation Packages
Bodhi Sessions are week-long yoga and surf camp vacations 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.
Our surfing vacations are week-long stays that are recommended for families and that provide flexibility and independence. There are two surf 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. The designated lodging options include Bungalow Gratitud and Bungalow Espiritu, and we recommend you begin your stay on a Saturday.
