This is a refreshing surf camp and yoga retreat in the private community of Punta El Custodio, Mexico. You will indulge without guilt in healthy, fresh, and nourishing vegetarian and seafood fare and stay at a stunning ocean front home with Mexican inspired art and architecture during this retreat. This retreat is the best chance for you to let go and unwind, take time for yourself, reconnect with yourself, get aligned with your goals and sense of well-being, get inspired, and take a week to just "be."
You will be accommodated in a luxury ocean front home with Mexican inspired art and architecture, El Custodio. All rooms are provided with air conditioning, private bathroom, and showers. There is also a private pool on site.
You will deepen your yoga practice with twice daily classes taught by Carly and India in the Vinyasa and Yin yoga disciplines and learn to surf in a fun and supportive atmosphere in mellow waves or progress your surf skills through new techniques and instruction. You will also explore the surrounding community and get to know Mexican culture and art.
Yoga Alliance Certified teachers, India Reinartz and Carly Chivers, will be pleased to guide you through daily yoga practice and meditation. India and Carly will meet you where you are in your yoga practice and as much as possible will cater the practice to highlight asana you would like to work on or focusing on aspects you would like to deepen your personal practice.
Both teachers guide in a Hatha-Vinyasa inspired style and always draw inspiration from the local environment, weather and time of day, to create the most harmony and balance in the body-mind-spirit.
The teams will bring you to the most beginner friendly spots possible for your surf lessons. During the lessons, you will have a lot of one on one instructor time to get comfortable and safe on your board so that you can have the most success and fun in the waves.
They have several surfboards for beginner level (soft top long-boards) to more advance which is high-performance short boards.
Notes: Ding damage fees apply. If a board is broken, the guest will be charged the value of the board. If you are an inexperienced surfer, please be cautious when surfing because of the “break it you buy it” rule.
You will get a day trip to the charming coastal town of Sayulita for shopping, art, and culture.
Starting her journey when she was young, India immersed herself into a surf culture. She has guided surf in Morocco, managed surf camps in Portugal and Nicaragua, and has traveled all around the world in search for waves, culture, and exposure. Now she finds herself wanting to challenge her strengths and embark on her own business adventure, so India created Papaya Wellness, a dream of hers to teach, guide, and share her love for the ocean through playing in the waves.
Yoga combined with a dedicated passion for surfing has led Carly all over the world. She has been surfing and exploring Europe, North Africa, Indonesia, Hawaii, and currently Central America. Her love for the ocean influences and inspires her yoga practice. After years of study, Carly took the leap to become a 200-hour certified yoga instructor. Since then, she has been sharing her contagious love for yoga and the peace she finds on the mat with students on retreats and in private classes.
This retreat will take place in Nayarit, Mexico.
