Yoga Surf Retreat
Come and experience this great combination 11-18 August 2016
So the lovely Lindsey Porter has teamed up with Marcus and Sanaa of African Spirt to run a 7 day yoga surf retreat here on the 11th June. It should be a good one nice and warm and VERY mellow. I reckon the beach should be DESERTED as its Ramadan, this means we will pretty much have the place to our selves in and out of the water YIPPEE
"Life is like a wave, you can't change they way it breaks, but you can change the way you ride it."
Lindsey will be making sure you have every opportunity to warm up, tone up and increase your flexibility during your stay. With 2 Hatha based yoga practices available per day you will find everything you need to enjoy to the max your surfing experience and adventures here with African Spirit. Plus, everyone will receive a complimentary Reiki or Indian Head Massage – the perfect start to your stay.
Who should come?
Both the yoga and the surfing are suitable for a complete beginner up to a more experienced level for anyone at any age. We’ll take good care of you and help you reach your potential whether on the mat or in the sea!
What type of yoga is it and what can I expect?
Lindsey completed her Teacher training in India in 2006 in Akhanda Hatha yoga and currently offers 3 classes a week as well as Wellbeing Retreats (yoga, walking and coaching) in Scotland, where she is based. Whilst her style follows the Hatha tradition she also likes to incorporate elements from other styles such as Bikram and yin yoga. Typically in one of her yoga sessions, she will guide you though a combination of postures (asana’s) breathing exercises (pranayama) and relaxation/internal focus techniques as well as incorporating aspects of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) into the classes to support self-belief and confidence. Yoga is a non-competitive activity which exercises the mind, body and improves breathing. It promotes balance, core stability, strength and flexibility, alongside encouraging us to make space to absorb the benefits of our practice. All this can help to re-energise and rejuvenate ourselves.
