You will stay a local hotel close to Mana Lodge for 2 nights. Here you will have a private room. Within a few minutes you walk to Mana Lodge.

Mana Lodge is located in the famous surf village of Wijk aan Zee, in the dunes, next to a church and close to the beach and the sea. Mana is the Hawaiian word for soul, spirit and life energy, which is reflected in the interior: lots of straw wood, concrete, wood stoves and natural elements. Mana Lodge will be used for breakfast, yoga, sup and soul sessions.

The kitchen is probably the heart of Mana Lodge, here you start with a breakfast, make plans for the day, drink tea and coffee, listen to music and have long warm conversations next to the fire place!

Instructors

Peter is one of the founders of Soulsupyoga. He was born on July 1967, and grew up on the beach and the ocean at Wijk aan Zee. He has always felt a strong bond with the ocean, but it became much stronger by sup surfing. Supping gives him the ultimate feeling of freedom, which he would like to share with you!
