It’s no secret that Costa Rica is well known worldwide to be a hotbed of surfing and yoga. The Soul Surfer Yoga Retreat is a perfect combination of the two. This retreat is for those who are complete beginners and want to learn how to surf, as well as seasoned surfers who want to take their skill level to new heights. Our instructors will provide you with individual attention and modify their lessons to meet your needs and goals so you can learn at your own pace.
Along with a week full of catching waves and feeling the power of the ocean beneath your feet, you’ll also enjoy daily yoga sessions overlooking 270 degrees of ocean view to improve your flexibility and strength. Many avid surfers, in order to enhance stamina and prevent injuries, commonly practice yoga.

Where We Surf:
We take a van each day to the best possible surf spots in the area, depending on the size of the waves, tides, and the dynamics of the group. Our two favorite spots are Playa Grande in Montezuma, and Playa Hermosa in Santa Teresa:
One of the country’s most beautiful beaches, it is a 30-minute walk through beach and jungle trails, past waterfalls and beautiful scenery. The waves here are fairly small, but consistent and no rocks. It’s excellent for beginners.
Just north of Santa Teresa is the prettiest and broadest beach around, with larger waves and a point break. It’s worth the drive to come out here, and we usually bring all Anamaya’s guests here every Thursday afternoon for a bonfire.
