It is a well known now, that yoga is a great surfing enhancer as you work strength, balance, flexibility, and focus during yoga practices and that affects directly your efficiency in the water, your recovery time in between surf sessions, the likely to have lesions and your connection to nature.

With the early morning yoga sessions, you can slowly connect to your inner self, wake up with the ocean's breeze energy and prepare your body's muscles for paddling, standing up, riding waves and to avoid injuries.

Through conscious breathing exercises you can enhance your endurance in the water, with a sharp, focused mind you can make better wave choices, follow more precisely their experienced surf teacher's advice and, later on in the afternoon and close to the sunset, you can stretch and relax your body, recharge your mind, and get prepared for a more exciting life to come. Surf lessons schedules can change due to tides and ocean conditions, but the regular schedule works like this.

Typical daily schedule

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Breakfast
  • 09:30 - 11:00 Yoga class
  • 11:00 - 12:00 Break
  • 12:00 - 14:00 Surf lesson

Things to do (optional)

Ripar Surf School offers a special massage therapy which helps alleviate physical exhaustion, tensions and other minor conditions that the surf students may experience after an intensive surf session. The objective of the therapy is to restore the flexibility of the joints by loosening minor muscle contractions and correcting mechanical imbalances caused by the unusual exercise.

The shiatsu massage is based on the principles of Chinese traditional medicine. It consists of applying pressure to the acupoints, in which the therapist uses fingers, palms, feet, and his/ her own weight, without using any oils or creams.

The most important benefits are stimulation of the self-regulatory system of the organism, deep relaxation of body and mind and the release of energetic tensions and blockages. It will also support the natural and free flow of vital energy (Qi) and the contact with the body and inner self. You can also enjoy surf and yoga, or just relax on the beach, bars, cafes, and restaurants.
