Yoga and Surf Holiday in France

The surf and yoga week is suitable for every one of 23 years and older. Experience is not required. But if you already have experience, this week will significantly help to improve your yoga and / or surfing skills. The ‘retreat’ is similar to the all-in surf week.

Finding relaxation is not difficult in our lounge garden with (heated) swimming pool, in one of the bean bags while using free Wi-Fi and at the daily campfire at night drinking cold beers.

Pura Vida Surf Lodge offers the kind of accommodation that surfers are looking for in Mimizan Plage, France.

Spacious rooms

The spacious rooms with sturdy beds and comfortable mattresses provide a perfect nights rest. The rooms vary from 2 to 6 persons capacity and most of them even have their own private terrace. The lodge has reliable and clean showers and toilets.

The lodge

The lodge is also equipped with a huge common relax-garden with a nice heated private swimming pool. With a small maximum capacity of 26 guests you will certainly be able to find your peace.

Lounge area

The lounge area has nice comfortable sofas in a unique surfy decor. They create a super relaxed atmosphere and function as an ideal place to share time with others or enjoy your own space and rest. A library and board games keep the boredom at bay.

Garden area

In the garden area, the 100% south facing sun terrace with swimming pool is equipped with lounge beds, garden furniture and an outside solar shower. Retreat from the midday sun and chill out in the garden, in a hammock or with a book in the love-seats - no problem at the surf lodge!

Amenities

The more active guests can play darts, table tennis or a game of bowls. You can also enjoy a cold beer by the pool during the aprs-surf. In addition, the lodge provides free wifi throughout the house and garden. Surfing costs energy. Therefore it is important to reload your batteries in order to best enjoy the sun, sea, surf and beach.

Yoga teachers

Fran (2018)

Fran, our main yoga teacher this summer, hopes to inspire you through her daily classes and supports her students by bringing more awareness to the breath, body, mind, and soul. Her classes are flowing and powerful, creating meditation in movement by uniting breath and movement.

An

An is our experienced yoga teacher. An will not be present at all times anymore, but will still teach some of the SUP-yoga lessons as well as workshops. She offers a variety of yoga classes. Every lesson starts with a warming up, following breathing exercises and several poses which improve your stability and flexibility. It ends with relaxation. An teaches you how to stretch before and after surfing to keep your body in top shape.

WORKSHOPS 2018 - new ones will be published soon:

CHAKRA YOGA

Chakra yoga is a form of yoga which has its roots in Tibetan Buddhism. During this workshop, we will explore the chakra system of our body with the help of Chakra yoga.

A human body has 7 chakras (‘energy wheels’) which provide energy to the organs surrounding the chakras. During the Chakra yoga session, you will practice yoga asanas (yoga poses) to bring more energy to each of the 7 chakras. Healthy chakras mean a healthy body! You will also measure the flow of energy in your chakras with the help of a crystal, to see which chakras are performing well, and which chakras could do with a little more energy.

In short, it will be an exciting workshop during which you will strengthen the body-mind connection and allow you to get to know, and follow the movement of energy within- perfect for surfing!

THE SUP YOGA WORKSHOP

A combination of stand up paddling and yoga – is the perfect match between surfing and yoga. We first practice on land in an introductory lesson to get more comfortable before we hit the water with the SUP.

YOGA FOR BACK PAIN WORKSHOP

With our stressed lives, sitting far too often and not moving enough, it is not surprising our backs get tired and achy. And some sports, such as surfing, make the lower back muscles strong, but also tight. Fortunately, yoga is perfect for everybody who suffers from back pain! During this workshop, you will focus on gently stretching the back muscles and doing yoga asanas that relieve back pain.

Keeping at it is the key, so after your week of surfing at Pura Vida, keep on caring for your back at home with yoga- your whole body will thank you for it!

Retreat location

Mimizan is a seaside town nestled into the luscious green landscape of the Landes Forest of Gascogne. Silvercoast is an ocean coast with silver reflections, as observed by the poet Maurice Martin, at the beginning of the century.

Mimizan is a leading, very sociable surfing spot in the Southwest of France. Youll find an international mix of surf dudes and surf chicks. Mimizan guarantees the perfect surfing holiday to remember! With the immense Atlantic Ocean at your doorstep, Europes most beautiful waves always roll in here.

Because the waves break on sandbars just offshore, its excellent for novice surfers as the perfect place to learn how to catch your first wave. For the experienced surfer there is more than enough to do in the high rear.
