Program

This retreat will create a safe learning environment for women to explore the magic of surfing, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced intermediate.

The yoga that will be taught in this retreat will focus on strengthening the muscles needed for effective paddling (and stretching them at the end of the day after your surf outings), cultivating better balance, and learning good physical positioning and technique for the most efficient and rewarding surf experiences.

Instructors

Elana Cydney Vollen
In fifteen years of teaching, Elana has cultivated a teaching style that is alignment-based and logically thought out in terms of sequencing and structure yet fluid and graceful and not so full of words. Elana aims to lift each other up and celebrate life, not focus on how you compare to others or all that you cannot do. Every asana is a poem that can be done through offering your bodies to the divine. She will be there as a guide and to make sure you offer it safely. She is a surfer and a yogini and it has always been a dream of hers to bring these two worlds together.
