Mana Lodge is located in the famous surfing village Wijk aan Zee, in the dunes, next to a church and 1 minute from the beach and the ocean. Would you like to sleep in a medieval church and to be awakened by church bells? This is your chance! Mana Lodge was built in 1742 and used to be an old ‘concealed church’. It has been completely renovated in 2007 and is surrounded by two wooden chalets that are permanently rented out. Mana is the Hawaiian word for soul, spirit and life energy which is reflected in the interior and decoration, a lot of driftwood, concrete, several wood stoves and a lot of natural elements.

Would you like sleeping under the stars? Here you are close to the stars and close to the church bells which both have a healing effect. There is an open stair entrance to the Loft with four single beds.
Would you like sleeping in the dunes? The Greenroom has a magnificent view on the dunes. If you are silent you can hear the sound of the waves. The Greenroom has four single beds
You will practice SUP depending on the circumstances, weather and tides. When the waves are good you will go to the ocean in Wijk aan Zee for SUP surfing, and if the waves are not good you will practice SUP technique on canals and lakes for SUP touring. When there is a lot of wind, it will be possible to go SUP down winding on the ocean or lakes.
When the tide is good in the early morning, you will go for an early bird SUP and have breakfast afterwards. There will also be a sunset SUP session, since you don’t want to miss the beautiful sunsets! You will receive all the basic technical skills important in supping: paddle technique, paddle posture, turning, safety and entrance. Every SUP lesson will start with a short warming-up including some powerful yoga exercises.
The retreat will start 7 pm on Thursday and ends 5 pm on Sunday
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!
