    The retreat is structured around the chakra system, the seven energy centers of the body used to keep the flow of prana (life force) balanced and moving freely. Literally translated from Sanskrit, chakra means "wheel, cycle, or circle" and each chakra spins at a different frequency, promoting health and healing throughout a practitioners whole system. These centers each hold specific tasks energetically devoted to aligning the body, mind, and spirit, while allowing practitioners to journey thru each chakra individually, listening to the wisdom all seven energy centers have to offer.

    Day 1: Root chakra (Muladhara)

    Welcome to Sayulita. This day is all about grounding you in the Mexican soil and meeting your soul sisters for the week. Walk into the welcome circle and intention setting session upon arrival, followed by a grounding yoga practice. This is the first day of the retreat, so your focus will be centered on settling in and dining traditional Mexican style with your fellow Diosas.

    Day 2: Sacral chakra (Svadhistana)

    The element for the sacral chakra is water - time to get wet! This day is filled with SUP yoga, laughter, and good times. Another central aspect of the second chakra is sweetness, so expect some delicious surprises. Svadhistana chakra embodies connection, and one's ability to accept others and new experiences.

    Day 3: Solar plexus chakra (Manipura)

    Today is all about finding your power center. Every goddess knows deep down how powerful she can be, and your inner warrior princess shall be evoked on the third day. Expect to sweat it out, create magic, and connect with the sacred space of divine force within. Of course, beach and water time is an absolute! A morning hike to a secret view spot in Riviera Nayarit starts your third chakra adventure.

    Day 4: Heart chakra (Anahata)

    Diving deep into the center of your heart, individually and collectively, is today's journey. Heart-opening yoga practice, crystal healing, and a sunset SUP tour, gathering the pinks and purples of Nayarit's vast sky to add to your memories canvas are on the menu du jour.

    Day 5: Throat chakra (Vishuddha)

    Surf's up! Today, you will bring king energy into the mix, your own and a friend's, with a full day of surf theory, lessons, and video analysis. Former professional surfer, Kalle Carranza, will help you find your voices amongst the roar of Sayulita's waves. Giggles and screams are encouraged.

    Day 6: Third eye chakra (Ajna)

    The home of your intuition and center of your access into the unseen world. On the sixth day. you venture to a secret beach known for its raw healing power and manifestation abilities. A closing ceremony will be held to gather your retreat experience into something more tangible that you can bring back home into your daily lives. Las Diosas will move into your homes and hearts.

    Day 7: Crown chakra (Sahasrara)

    Closing the week with a morning goddess circle and Vinyasa practice, you and your retreat sisters are invited to consciously process all you have received from this week of deep practice and intentional healing. And then, if you want, you can cry and laugh your way to the airport for some high fives, hugs, and 'see ya laters'!

      "I was more than happy to attend LDR last spring. The week was mind blowing. The retreats is really what they promise on their website, fun girl gang time, yoga, surf, sun, beach, margaritas, you name it! I had an amazing week with fellow ladies attending the retreat, the refreshing yoga classes, FUNFUNFUN surf lessons and last but not least the workshops that Eva and Leah organized for us. The week was a spiritual self-searching week, together with overall well-being. Absolutely amazing. Hope to attend again next summer! THANK YOU"

      "Recientemente fui a un retiro de yoga las diosas 7 días con olas, me encanta y me encantó! Los instructores eran amables y acogedores, el océano era increíblemente cálido, y la ciudad era tan especial. Leah y Eva tendrán una semana increíble de talleres, aprendizaje y tiempo para explorar."

      "Ojalá hubiera tenido muchas más semanas en este pequeño paraíso. Sin duda recomendaría este viaje a cualquiera que quiera conectar con su práctica de yoga, y disfrute de la diversión en el sol y las olas."

      "Being late to the game, I started surfing at 55, after 10 yrs thought a lesson would be helpful . Kalle watched me on a couple waves and his input and critique were huge in making my time in the water so much more comfortable . His manner of instruction and experience made me feel that the next 10 years of surfing will be even better."

      "I couldn't be more thankful for the experience my friends and I had with the I Love Waves - surf and yoga package. It was most excellent!"

      "It was my very first time taking a surf lesson and I can't imagine it being any better. Kalle is incredibly skilled as an instructor. He is kind and comprehensible - which is a great combo to have real-time in the water! Kalle communicates and critiques in a clear and effective manner which allowed me to easily understand and make improvements to my technique and avoid bad habits from the beginning. I have quite a bit of room for improvement in the surf department but I can't wait to get back to Sayulita for more! P.S. I caught many waves and had SO much fun!"

      "Eva provided really great yoga guidance. As a surfer herself, she had experiential insights as to what our bodies needed and were calling for, even if we didn't know it ourselves. The yoga practice balanced out the surfing in such a beautiful way - they should ALWAYS be paired, in my opinion. Each class we took had elements that were engaging, relaxing, and playful. Don't surf without yoga, folks!"

      "The folks at Lunazul (home base) are awesome! I'm so happy that they were part of our Sayulita trip! Also, side note - brick and mortar: Lunazul (surf) and Moon Shala (yoga) are super clean, colorful, and nice! You'll love waves too!"

      "SURFING: A couple friends and I chose the 3-day I Love Waves package (3 surf lessons + 3 yoga classes) and it was super perfect. I really wanted to surf, and had tried a few times (even with lessons) but it wasn't clicking. And FINALLY here it did! We surfed so many waves thanks to Kalle. A teacher that has a passion for the sport and for teaching itself is such a rare find, and we happily stumbled upon that by meeting Kalle. It’s beautiful to see him work and his own happiness out there is infectious – we laughed and joked a lot - super good times! He obviously knows and loves the waves, and genuinely wanted to pass that comfort and skill along to us. His observations and suggestions were spot on and helped me to understand what worked, what didn’t, and why. I still wipe out a lot (which is actually kind of fun - and funny!) and have a good amount to learn, but I *am* catching waves on my own and I know it will get even better with practice now that I have a deeper understanding of the basics. Also, I have to say the entire staff at LunAzul (home base for surf classes) was amazing and helpful. They are all family and friends and they made us feel like we were at home with them."

      "YOGA: Eva’s beautiful yoga classes balanced out the surfing. As a surfer and yogi herself, she had a sense of what we would be feeling before or after surfing and worked with us to design a class that fit our needs for the day. We were better on the boards with the work we did on the mat, and I’m so happy we did both the surfing and the yoga."

      "BIG big thanks to the I-Love-Waves crew for helping us to feel so very alive! xx"

      "I just returned from a "Las Diosas" retreat led by two of the most lovely ladies, Leah and Eva. These women are powerful and kind hearted guides. They showed us all so much love, and fun and adventure. I highly recommend this trip to Sayulita with I Love Waves. The ladies planned so many varied activities in a week. I can't believe I am back home now. My trip was cathartic and joyful in so many ways. This is a great trip for single travelers. You will meet sisters along your journey, and get some top notch surf instructions from encouraging instructors... Namaste Ladies!"

      "I recently went on a 7 day Las Diosas yoga retreat with I Love Waves, and I Loved It! The instructors were kind and welcoming, the ocean was incredibly warm, and the town was so special. Leah and Eva curated an incredible week of workshops, learning, and time to explore. I wish I could have had many more weeks in this little paradise. I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone who wants to connect with their yoga practice, and enjoy fun in the sun and waves."

      "My husband and I had the most amazing experience with I love waves in Sayulita! We took four days of intermediate surf lessons with Kalle, where each morning we did 'theory' and surfed different breaks around the areas in the late morning / afternoon. The theory was incredibly useful,with well-designed and easy-to-understand slide presentations,we went through important topics such as turning, wave dynamics, and how to navigate a lineup without making anyone angry Emoticón smile We were also treated to an in-depth video analysis of our surfing which helped us identify (embarrassingly) what we were doing incorrectly. Kalle was a professional, positive, and incredibly knowledgeable instructor, and our lessons surely have empowered us to be safer and more agile surfers. I love waves (Kalle and Eva) made us feel like part of a family here in Sayulita, and we can't wait to come back!"

      "Kalles passion for surfing is infectious. As a coach, he knows how to give just the right advice at the right time without bombarding you with more information than you can handle. If youre looking to level up your surfing I strongly recommend booking a session with Kalle."

      "In my first session, Kalle's coaching dramatically improved my surfing. I picked up more in a few hours with him than I would have in six months on my own."

    • Review by Jessi Hunt

      "After 2 years of no improvement in my surfing, I finally decided to hire a personal instructor that could help me learn more fundamentals. Kalle was the perfect teacher. Not only did he thoroughly explain the theory and mechanics of surfing, but he intently watched my every move, and gave me personalized instruction that I could instantly apply and see results. If you want to be pushed into waves, there are no shortage of schools available to you, but if you are truly looking to improve your surfing, understand the waves, and be safe in the water, start with Kalle."

      "Kalles instruction extended far beyond the base mechanics of surfing, but covered everything the physics of the wave to the etiquette of the lineup. However, he also never lost sight of the goal, which is to enjoy the waves and the surf, which is exactly what we did."

    • Review by John Madere

      "Kalle did a great job of helping me take my surfing to the next level. He uses a clear, analytical approach to drive home basic principles before you even get into the water, and then inspires you to apply those lessons once youre out in the waves. His intuition and impressively keen eye for details helped me improve my surfing faster than I could have imagined."
