8 Days 23+ Surf and Yoga Special (including workshops) in France

50, Avenue Maurice Martin 40200 Mimizan Plage, France

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 the experience, this week will significantly help to improve your yoga and / or surfing skills. The ‘retreat’ is similar to the all-in surf week. Besides surfing lessons there is a full yoga program focused on body strength and flexibility.

We have a comfortable bed available for you, a big breakfast buffet every morning and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen to prepare a wonderful dinner at night. 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. There aren’t more ingredients needed to make this holiday in the Pura Vida Lodge one you will remember for a long time!

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.

Program

At Pura Vida Lodge, we believe that yoga can improve the strength, flexibility, and balance in the mind and the body, which will be helpful for your surf skills. Wed like to welcome everyone that is over 21 years and open-minded for surf and yoga. You don't need any experience, but if you do, you'll deepen your yoga skills and / or surf practice this week.

"All-in" week

The surf and yoga retreat is kind of an all-in week: from a comfy bed, extended breakfast buffet, a nice garden with heated pool, fire-place and sun-deck, surf and yoga courses every day, all surf materials (boards and wetsuits), electric beach cruiser, and free Wi-Fi (from your hammock to the Fatboys in the garden).

Yoga teacher Candide

Candide, our main yoga teacher this summer, hopes to inspire you through her daily classes.

SUP Yoga teacher An

An is our SUP 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.

Chakra, Trust and SUP yoga workshop

Chakra workshop

During the chakra workshop, we will approach our bodies from a different angle. Chakras are energy channels in the body that need to function in a balanced way for us to be healthy and to be able to develop. We will explore each chakra through postures and meditation, allowing us to be more aware of the energy flow in our bodies. This workshop may very well lead you to a different relation with your body and health.

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 introduction lesson to get more comfortable before we hit the water with the SUP.

Trust / Awareness workshop

In this time and age, more and more people seem to be dealing with burn-outs or other unexpected bumps in the road. Often this is derived from misplaced expectations/ feelings of responsibility and social pressure. This, however, leads us inward to question what is important and how we get to improve the way we perform in the world.

One of the core elements of performance is trust. In this workshop, we will discover where we need boundaries and where we can connect more for a healthy relationship to the world that surrounds us.

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.
