I’m so happy to team up with the Aloha NYC Surf School for a series of Yoga & Surf Retreats beginning August 3rd! When I started surfing last summer I had such an AMAZING experience. I learned the fundamentals of paddling, swimming, controlling myself and the board, but also in falling and feeling defeated, I learned to get back up! Every wave is not the same. Every Yoga pose is not the same. Nothing is perfect and nothing will ever entirely be perfect but our experiences, especially during defeat, are lessons we must learn to continue on and ‘ride the wave,’ to hold the Yoga pose and to get back up when we fall!
Yoga and Surfing make such an awesome pair. They both help with mental focus and can improve balance and physical strength. If you’re all about FUN and being challenged while empowering yourself (and getting lots of cardio!) please hang with us at the beach for this retreat. You will learn a lot about the ocean and about yourself!
Here is our tentative schedule for August 3rd.
9:30am – 10:00am: Check In
10:00am – 11:00am: Morning Yoga – We will focus on poses to help open up the hips, warm up the lower back, and strengthen the arms preparing us for our surf lesson.
11:00am – 12:15pm – Break for lunch
12:30pm – 2:00pm – Surf Lessons with Aloha NYC
2:00pm – 3:30pm – Gentle Yoga, End of Day Meditation & Relaxation – We will do some restorative poses and stretches to wind down and relax before ending the day.
Retreat Fees: $125 per person.
-Includes surf boards, wet suits, Yoga Classes and Surf Lessons.
What to Bring: A beach towel, sunblock, Yoga mat if you have one and your lunch. We will have water but feel free to bring a cooler with whatever else you may need for the day.
The Yoga classes and surf lessons will all happen on 60th Street in Rockaway Beach. It is an honor to be back at Rockaway. You will feel the community is stronger and determined to continue to rebuild this area that was hit so hard by Hurricane Sandy.
