Accommodation

Escape Kiteboarding offers comfortable rooms in the pousada (accommodation) direct to the beach and direct at the kite spot. The pousada has 10 bedrooms, restaurant, bar, gardens, and various hang-out areas.

Escape Kiteboarding has a few options, all of which are extremely comfortable and modern with private bathroom facilities. The pousada offers a dorm that can sleep up to 10 people. There are also standard rooms for up to 3 people sharing and roof top suites that can accommodate up to 2 people.

Escape Kiteboarding Brazil Yoga Retreat Program

During this retreat, you will get professional yoga instruction from Lou Cooper, a South American yoga teacher with over 1100 hours of courses and years of teaching experience. You will enjoy yoga session twice daily for fifteen days; a morning session before breakfast and an evening session before the evening meal.

Kite surfing lessons are also a major part of the program with enough time to get most people riding around independently. The price includes the rental equipment so this means that you can practice on your own and really get your skills dialed. You will enjoy regular live music nights and open-air cinema (a couple times in a week).

Retreat location

Barra Nova is a small fishing village which is extremely safe. The locals are friendly and the landscapes are to die for. The village is in the state of Ceara, an hour away from the main city of Fortaleza which is the largest city in North Brazil. Barra Nova means 'new lagoon' which it literally is.

There is fresh water entering the lagoon from two sides, from the open sea and from a freshwater river on the other side of the lagoon. That way, the water stays fresh and clean. As the tide naturally changes the lagoon each month, you will be able to discover different sandbanks and super nice surfing spots for all levels. Rediscover your favorite spot each holiday.

Depending on the tide, the water in the lagoon varies from very shallow to high. Most of the time, it is possible to stand in the lagoon. Low tide is no excuse for not having a great kitesurfing session on the flat water. When the tide is low, several pools evolve behind the sand bank with great flat water conditions. To be honest, rocking the waves of the open sea is awesome too sometimes. This is all just a couple of line lengths away from the pousada.
