Create your perfect combination of yoga and surf. Learn Surf & Yoga offers you a calm and fun atmosphere with a great group in a beautiful beach of Sri Lanka. Reward yourself with a short break filled with yoga, surf lessons, enlightening workshops, and balanced healthy super delicious meals every day. Detox from your stressful life and reenergize. Just simply book your spot and enjoy the pleasant anticipation!
During your retreat, you will stay in a beautiful space in the middle of Mirissa, Club Mirissa. The accommodation is in 400 meters walking distance to the beach with Mirissa main spot directly on the right hand side and Mirissa beach break on the left. There are plenty of smaller restaurants and beach bars nearby to enjoy a beautiful sunset on the beach.
The space is perfectly appointed for all your needs. It is nice and quiet with the big garden area, lots of trees, bushes and plants, and small sitting areas all around in the garden. The bungalows are spread in the garden. There is a big dining area outside with a nice breeze but protected by a rood. The yoga space is also a beautiful pavilion, patio area in the garden.
You will be accommodated in a bungalow with private bathroom in the vast and richly green garden either by yourself, with your partner or friends, or as a shared bungalow.
During this retreat, you will have two yoga classes every day, Vinyasa in the mornings and Restorative Yin in the evenings. In addition to that, you will also have daily workshops with topics ranging from Acro, inversions, theater, to personal alignment. You will also be able to surf as much or as little as you wish. At an additional price, you will also be able to have surf lessons with Freedom Surf School in Weligama.
Every class starts with a silent, group meditation. After that, you will do some asanas to get the muscles warm and smooth. Into the Vinyasas (moving with your breath), you will move through different postures in which you strengthen your core, your balance, or stretch your muscles. At the end of every class, there is again a meditation. In total, the classes last between 60 minutes to 90 minutes.
Here, you will create a flow with your movements and breath. It is physically more demanding and perfect to bulid up muscle strength and increase your flexibility. Learn Surf & Yoga will show you some more advanced poses too, but as always, everyone only does what feels right to them.
Here, you do not warm your muscles but you will simply do light stretches with your own body weight and hold them for one to two minutes. This is good to learn to let go, get into deep relaxation, restore your muscles, and accept the status of self.
Here, Learn Surf & Yoga will help you to get the alignments right and focus a bit more on correcting instead of flowing through the class. You will do a quick warm up flow together and then they will offer you ideas and postures on which you individually can work on. It could be just the basics like downward facing dog, or advanced inversions like handstand, and more.
This program will be held in Mirissa, a very cozy surf town in the south of Sri Lanka.
