The Holistic Yoga & Surf Vacation package provides two major opportunities: first, to give you substantial knowledge of the ocean, surfing theory, and philosophy and allow you to put what you learn into practice; second, to ensure that you get some solid time on the yoga mat to work on your practice and help foster strength, flexibility, and breath – all which are beneficial for developing your surfing ability. Additionally, for a week, you will experience what life is like in a sleepy coastal Costa Rican town where the lush green mountains meet the sea. At the end of the week, you will feel refreshed, physically stronger, and generally more stoked on life!
What to Expect
Our Holistic Yoga & Surf Vacation itinerary includes four surf lessons, four yoga classes, and guided community walking tour through Bahia Ballena. It provides a grounded week of yoga and surfing in the delightful natural surroundings found in Costa Rica’s South Pacific region. You will also have plenty of time to explore the area and take in the natural beauty of your surroundings.
For an entire week you’ll spend part of your days learning to surf at Bahia Ballena’s Whale Marine National Park, an ideal place for beginners to catch their first waves and develop their surfing ability. You will spend the other part of your days rejuvenating your body during the Vinyasa Flow yoga classes at the Bodhi Shambala Yoga studio. Additionally, you will have a vehicle so you have the ability to do what you like in your down-time: take a walk to the famous Whale’s Tail, hike to a cool and refreshing waterfall, or just kick back, relax and enjoy the fact that you are in Costa Rica.
This vacation is ideal for you if you are committed to improving your surfing ability and yoga practice, but are more of an independent traveler who wants to have the means to get around on your own. There are no meals included in this option, but you can explore the local eateries and sample Tico cuisine at your leisure. This vacation will afford you with the chance to reconnect with some of the more simple things in life: nature, the ocean, and the joy of physical activity!
Lodging options for vacation package guests consist of a large bungalow for up to four people, Bungalow Gratitud, and a smaller bungalow for up to two people, Bungalow Espiritu. Each of these bungalows is setup with a kitchenette to provide guests the ability to prepare simple meals. Room details can be found on the Bodhi Surf Lodge page.
Please note that the Bodhi Surf Lodge is designed for stays that begin on Saturday.
