The workshop program will lead participants through a series of aspects specific to the retreat. This will help ground your vacation in a practical, simple, and extraordinary experience of the life transforming potential of yoga.

Personal Evaluation

A brief evaluation of each individual’s ability, intentions, and expectations helps a lot with assisting each course participant to make the best of the retreat opportunities. One-on-one instruction and personal training can be used to maximize each participant’s individual opportunities for increased performance skills or remedial (yoga therapy) from the retreat. Attention to such detail is a vital component in the pursuit of health and excellence.


The retreat is situated on the edge of the mile long golden sands of Muizenberg beach, which is known to be one of the best beaches in the entire world to learn to surf. This is due to the gradual curve of the ocean floor which helps form the gentle peaks that roll in and from up to 300 meters, allowing maximum time to surf the face of the wave.

The bottom is free of rocks and there are no dangerous rip currents. During April to September it is the best season for surfing this coastline, with average conditions having of moderate light winds and two to three feet high surf, perfect for learning, and excellent for long-boarding to satisfy for those that have experience in this style.

Included excursions

Included in the price are a surf and beach trip to the Atlantic coast, a scenic walk up Table mountain, and a kayaking trip to see a colony of penguins in a marine reserve.


Cape Town Surf Yoga is set in a historical building right on the beach, at the iconic Surfer's Corner in Muizenberg, a coastal suburb which is 20 minutes away from the city centre. The area is wedged in between the evergreen slopes of the Table mountain belt, with a wide variety of plant and animal life and great hiking trails, and the temperate Southern Atlantic ocean. Several quaint seaside villages are within walking distance and offer many coffee shops, galleries, and points of interest. There is also a train service with regular departures to the city centre.
