This post is long overdue, about some 4 months. BUT, what is better than reminiscing over sunny summery photos in the midst of winter?! And… to look forward to next year’s retreats (28-30 July & 25-27 August 2017 for Scheveningen, and April and/or May 2017 (dates TBA) for Bali, Indonesia)!? 😉

[spacer height=”18px”]Really, this Weekend Retreat was one of the best experiences in my life. A dream came true to organise, host and teach 12 amazing women all about Surf & Yoga. It was such a joy to work together with the super talented surfer/yogi couple Georgina & Dennis.

Sunset Treepose

[spacer height=”18px”]Pre-surf vinyasa beach yoga, after-surf yin yoga, sunset treeposes, some AcroYoga, and meditation. It’s so good to tune in every day, catch up with your breath, and to just play around.

[spacer height=”18px”]Body & Fit helped us to stay hydrated and full on energy by providing us with protein shakers and shakes.

Amazing weekend! Easy to follow and do-able for an inexperienced surfer like myself! The balance between Yoga and Surfing was great! The surfing could be even more but that’s because I liked it so much haha! Would recommend this to get to know both ‘sports’/ways to relax. This is a weekend I will not soon forget.. ~ Kyra

[spacer height=”18px”]Healthy smoothies, tasty tuna/veggie/beef burgers, tapas, fresh sandwiches, and the best chocolate brownies. All thoroughly enjoyed at Hart Beach Surf School and Meneer Chocola.
