Overview

We will share with you the way that surfing can become more of a spiritual journey, as you learn how to read the waves and become one with the ocean. Surfing involves complete surrender to the unpredictability, it helps us realise the power of nature, but also the healing element of water. In this way, yoga and surf become the perfect combination to bring you back into more flow and creativity.

They have combined their 20 years of experience to curate a collection of retreats that share their personal experiences with water.

Waikato, New Zealand.

The Hottest Spot to Ride The Waves

Waikato is home to a must visit surf destination, Raglan! Raglan's Manu Bay, Whale Bay and Indicators are 3 of the most famous and high performance left handers in the country.  Waikato's west coast location gets very consistent and often big, raw, southwesterly swells that produce great surf. Locals can get protective of these breaks, so know the rules and be careful.

Waikato, New Zealand.

Finally a new kind of retreat! I loved the combination of mindfulness, and adventure. Just what we wanted for the annual trip!

Travelling alone means I always choose a retreat, but I'd never tried a sailing trip before. It was the perfect setting to get to know the group, and share the journey together
