There will be twice daily Iyengar yoga classes, aligning the body, mind, and being. You will start the morning with a more invigorating class, working through alignment principles connecting the intelligence of the brain with the space of the heart. In the evening after a splendid day of surf, there will be a restorative session, calming the senses, and relaxing the body. The surf will give you a chance to connect with the ocean and see some of the most beautiful beaches around. Connecting this all together is the wonderful food we will share.
