    Your morning will be fulfilled with an early yummy breakfast and water activities, including a surf lesson for level 1 surfers. After that, you will get back to the camp and get a bite to eat. The afternoon is reserved for more surfing as all the surfing gear is available to be used as you please.

    The instructors are highly qualified and bilingual. They make Surf N Stay's school the best place to learn how to surf. Surf N Stay normally goes to Pontal Beach by street 2W or in front of the first kiosk, next to life guard tower 12.


    At 18:00, you will have a Kundalini yoga session. It is designed to raise complete body awareness to prepare the body, nervous system, and mind to handle the energy of Kundalini rising. The majority of the physical postures focus on navel activity, activity of the spine, and selective pressurization of body points and meridians. Breathing technique and the application of bandhas (3 yogic locks) aid to release, direct, and control the flow of Kundalini energy from the lower centers to the higher energetic centers.

    Along with the many kriyas which include meditations and practices of Kundalini yoga, a simple breathing technique of alternate nostril breathing (left and right nostrils) is taught as a method to cleanse the nadis or subtle channels and pathways to help awaken Kundalini energy.

    As surfers, the practice of yoga helps your body to increase its strength at body and mind level. All of the exercises and postures involved in the practice help you to increase the body strength and to perform better in the water. At the same time, the meditation side helps you to be focused and calm.

    This surf camp will take place in south of Rio center which is surrounded by majestic rainforests and nestled on the pure white shores of Rio de Janeiro. It is an ideal place to run surf camps in Brazil. Rio de Janeiro allows exploring the impressive sceneries and unique cultural experiences of this exotic travel destination.

      "I was staying in Rio and looking for a spot to learn how to surf, luckily I came across Rio Surf n Stay and made the great choice of booking lessons there. My instructor, Vitor, was a great dude who got me riding waves on my first day! Its hard to put it all into words, but basically the vibes at Rio Surf n Stay are amazing. The instructors are amazing, loved that I pick this place to learn how to surf and will definitely come back!"

      "All staff treated us like family from the very first moment with a free barbecue, surf lessons were cool, instructors are very good and knowledgeable. The owner and management were always around to help. Bed room and bathroom are nice and clean. Meditation and yoga was new for me, but it fits perfectly at this location. Special thanks to Betania for making our stay nothing but perfect."

      "I arrived on April because I wanted to surf and living in Rio city, you don´t have waves everyday. So I decide it to come to Recreio and discovered this amazing place: a professional surf school, people from all over the world totally crazy about surfing, all the comfort and feeling of a house (a brazilian-kiwi surfer couple created the hostel 10 years ago) , a natural environment and close to the best surfer spots of Rio de Janeiro: Macumba, Prainha, Grumarí. So I became the yoga instructor of the hostel! Just perfect. They have a program to support people that want to surf & work. So if u have the chance to visit this place, want to surf, chill, meet awesome people and do some yoga, just go there. You will fall in love with Rio Surf n Stay!"
