Yoga and surfing go together like the sea and saltwater. Both disciplines tap into a natural flow. Yoga gets you in touch with the rhythm of your breath and body, while surfing gets you in sync with the wave patterns and ocean tides. They help you focus your mind and supports your balance on the board. This vacation has been designed so that you can enjoy a different and quality vacation.
