Yoga & Surf Retreat with The Yoga Hub 2014

Yoga & Surf Retreat with The
Yoga Hub 2014
Sat 30th August - Sat 6th September 2014
So What Is It?
The Yoga Hub has always had community and a sense of fun at the centre of its activities. We like to show our
students that yoga can offer us new experiences both on and off the mat. So a trip bringing our yogis abroad to
beautiful surroundings, with new challenges and lots of yoga seemed like the perfect combination of all of our
favourite things.
We are excited to offer an experience tailored to The Yoga Hub students and of course any yogis who would like to
join in the fun. It will be the perfect week to stretch your body and mind, and soak up some September sun to keep
you going through winter.

Who is it for?
This 1 week long surf & yoga retreat is aimed at anyone who enjoys trying new things
and wants to expand their comfort zone. Our main aim is to have fun in beautiful
surroundings. Our days will be full of activity, with two yoga classes and surf lessons,
with time in between for relaxing and catching some sun. If you would love to come
but don’t want to include any surf lessons, let us know and we can adjust your
booking. We do recommend giving them a go as you might just surprise yourself what
you’re capable of!
We welcome anyone who has, or who is developing a regular yoga practice. You can
book on your own, with a friend or more! You’ll be joining a group of like-minded
people with a great atmosphere.

What to expect: Yoga
2 daily yoga classes with Katie & Yoga Hub teachers. Our morning class will focus on getting us warmed up for the
day in a vinyasa flow style.
Our evening class will help us to release the muscles that we strengthened in the water, workshop some favourite
poses, and help us wind down for a peaceful evening. Our yoga classes will compliment our surf sessions as well
as allow a deeper exploration of your yoga practice.
This retreat will be about having fun! Letting go of stress and of inhibitions, meeting new people, seeing new places
and having a holiday that leaves you with a smile on your face, spring in your step, and sand in your hair.

What to expect: Surf
5 days surfing: 2 daily lessons with a professional surf coach. Ratio 1:8 max and all equipment provided.
If you have already been practicing yoga for a while, you might have forgotten that gem often referred to in zen
buddhism as Shoshin or beginners mind. Trying a new sport like surfing will remind you of what its like to start
something from scratch, free of expectations and open to possibility, full of excitement at little steps of progress.
Also all that paddling will help build strength for postures like handstand, and the balance poses will help us to find our
stability quicker on the board. Beginner and more experienced surfers both welcome.

We have teamed up with experienced surf school and hosts in the
beautiful fishing village of Luz. Our surf villa is located between Luz and
Burgau. You have the choice between luxury tipi (between 2, 3 or 4
people) or a shared dormitory room in the villa.
Private rooms are booked out.
There is a pool with hammocks, a beach volley ball court, indoboards to practice your surfing skills, and a jacuzzi bath
for pure relaxation.
Beaches are in walking distances, and for our surf lessons we will be transported to the most suitable swells of the
day, giving us a chance to explore some of this beautiful coastline.
