Robust Vitality Yoga Retreat in Peru Program

The ISA and Yoga Alliance certified instructors have put together a solid programming of surfing, yoga, and mindfulness meditation to perfect your surfing abilities over the course of the week. This trip is best suited for intermediate to advanced surfers, but beginners are most definitely welcome. Robust Vitality will tailor the classes to your particular needs. You will be taught from the ground up and as you progress throughout the week, Robust Vitality will push you further and take you back to the line up.

This experience is limited to 15 people and no previous surfing experience is required. The experienced guides work closely with local surf instructors to provide you with the best possible coaching. If you have ever dreamed of surfing the longest left-point break wave in the world and being pushed out of your comfort zone in a safe and supportive environment, this trip is for you.

Yoga

  • Daily pre-surf mindfulness meditation sessions
  • 6 yoga classes (tidal flow, Restorative, ginástica natural, and surf conditioning)
  • Suitable for all levels
  • Classes designed to maximize your surfing experience
  • Active classes to activate and strengthen muscle groups required for surfing
  • Restorative classes to stretch, relax, and allow your body to recover from your sessions
  • Expect lots of surf movements on the mat to get you ready to surf
  • Mindfulness meditation sessions help you stay in control of your breath and mind in and out of the water

Surf school

Can you catch the green waves on your own? Can you duck dive on a shortboard or turtle roll efficiently on a longboard? Can you turn left and right? Can you perform frontside and backside bottom turns? Can you perform frontside and backside cut backs?

If you answered no to one or more of those questions, you need to sign up for the surf camp.
