Enjoy surfing with us while connecting with yourself. The fun, playful, and challenging surfing together with the mindful, relaxing, and balancing yoga is a combination that many love.

The practice of yoga gives strength and flexibility to the body, and peace to the mind. By finding focus and clearing the mind, you will progress more in surfing. Breathing is also crucial in surfing and a main focus in yoga. Properly breathing relaxes the body and enhances your focus.

Build strength, increase flexibility and energy levels, bend, twist, breathe, and release tensions in yoga to become a better surfer.


Best experience ever. The team is super nice and friendly, make you feel you are at home even if you travel solo. Surf lessons are amazing and the surf camp could not be better. Highly recommend it to everyone!

Santa Teresa is a beautiful beach town that many people return to. This is a perfect place to connect with nature and also with yourself. Despite being a small town, it is still for everyone. Whether you want to go there for surfing, yoga, with your partner, family, or friends, Santa Teresa is the destination. It is a friendly place with a mix of Ticas/Ticos and internationals.

Santa Teresa is located in the southern part of the Nicoya Peninsula. With its many and long beaches it is an ideal place for those who love surfing or want to learn to surf. Santa Teresa also has many different yoga studios and activities in its biodiverse and beautiful nature. Some of the activities that one can do include horseback riding, ziplining, ATV tours, visit national parks, and fishing, just to name a few.

The schedule during this retreat is flexible. You can decide to do yoga in the morning and surfing in the afternoon, or vice versa. It is also possible to do yoga and surfing head to head in the morning, and have the afternoon off.

You will normally surf at 7 a.m., 10 a.m., or 3 p.m. The yoga schedules varies depending on the yoga studio and you decide yourself when to go.

We have 5- 7- and 10-day retreats. However, the retreat can be customized. For example, you can add an extra day of surfing or yoga, a rest day, etc. Please contact us with your request!
