Surf & Yoga Camps
Enjoy a healthy lifestyle while surfing epic waves
Yoga is the perfect activity to integrate into your lifestyle to improve your surfing. When you practice yoga you build strength, improve balance, clear your mind and increase your flexibility, all of which are vital out in the water. Taking part in the yoga classes will also get you to relax and really get into the rhythm of holiday life and leave the stress and worries of home behind.
We’ve put together a small selection of camps which put emphasis on providing the highest quality yoga lesson for every type of student, alongside the highest quality surf courses. The Surf & Yoga camps still provide the comfortable accommodation, amazing food, and epic waves you expect from Pure Surf Camps, with the added bonus of offering daily yoga sessions.
Surf Courses for every level
The selection of Surf & Yoga camps provide top quality surf courses just like all the camps we offer. If you are looking to stand up for the first time, surf along the face for the first time, or do your first big carve, we have the course for you.
To become a surf coach at any of the camps we offer you must be qualified through one of the internationally recognised surf associations as well as be a certified ocean lifeguard.
Yoga to improve your surfing
If you don’t get to spend much time surfing the first few days out in the ocean will be a bit of a shock to your muscles. The stretching you will do during the yoga sessions is a perfect way to relieve the tension that built up while paddling, and get you ready for another day out in the water. You’ll also notice that yoga improves your ability to get up quickly once you’ve paddled onto the wave and when you’re standing you will feel more balanced.
Certified yoga teachers
Depending on the camp you have up to 2 yoga sessions per day with experienced and qualified yoga instructors. The lessons are laid out in way that means both experienced yogis and those of you wanting to take part for the first time will have a great time.
Yoga & Surfing
The exercises you do during the daily yoga sessions focus on working in harmony with the movements you do when you’re out in the water. The yoga instructor all surf as well so they know from experience how to improve your surfing skill through yoga. You will improve flexibility, strength, balance and mental calmness which is all fundamental to successful surfing.
You can book just yoga, or just surfing, as well as combining both during your stay. This is perfect for couples and groups where not everybody wants to surf or do yoga.
