“AWESOME. Perfect combo of yoga + surf”

Ella Gjerdrum, Yoga Instructor, Norway

“WOW! Painfully good, satisfying,
grateful for the physicality”

Sudan Martin, Graphic Designer, USA

“Freakin’ awesome! Learned a lot. It is a great way to help people know how it feels and how to move your body on a board for optimal surfing progression.”

Ferryn Nickole, Social Media Manager, USA

“From the structure of the day to the openness of the organizers, I would consider it a perfect experience.”

Bryant Ogando, Professional Ju-Jitsu Athlete, Dominican Republic

“Life changing! It got me back to my interest in learning how to surf. A killer workout! I felt a great balance of meditation and physical strength and surf moves.”

Manuel Mininho, Art Director & Filmmaker, Dominican Republic

THE SURFASANA RETREAT SPIRIT

We host this retreat with the clear intention to share with you the physical, spiritual and surfing practice we love most, creating a safe and non-competitive space where everyone can find peace, fun, friendship and advancement.

DAILY EXPERIENCE

Shortly after sunrise you may join in a guided meditation practice prior to engaging in a first Surfasana warmup, getting ourselves primed for surfing.

A natural smoothie later, what follows is up to two hours of fun-filled paddling and surfing, bringing to the waves what we learned on the mat  and applying breathing techniques into our surf practice. A full organic breakfast will  then wait for us to recharge.

Late morning will be the time for Surf Talks, ideas exchanges and surf-clinic style coaching – prior to a delicious organic lunch.

Early to mid-afternoons are yours to enjoy: by the pool, walk down the beach or visit the nearby town of Cabarete.

Late afternoons, we will join in a full Surfasana practice to close the afternoon prior to resting and getting ready for the evening activities marrying beautiful sceneries, fun and artistic expressions.

YOUR SURFASANA NEST

Nested in beautiful simplicity, comfort and nature, within a short walk from the surf beach of Encuentro is “El Encuentro Surf Lodge”. A jewel of a boutique hotel located in the vibrant beach town of Cabarete, on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. The perfect nest for our meditation, surf & yoga retreat.

The natural food restaurant welcomes both local surfers and hotel guests. It is a gentle hub where the local beach and expat communities like to stop by for a juice, food or coffee. The hotel also offers a large salt water pool, lined with shaded long chairs, beach mattresses, and a discrete pool bar. Naturally, we love the shaded yoga deck, covered with palm leaves, bordered by trees and tropical flowers, overlooking the hills.

SUPERIOR STUDIO

Each Superior Studio accommodates up to 2 guests over an approximate area of 430 sq/ft. or 40 m2. It comes with a California king-size bed, two sofa beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and a large private bathroom. Relax in your large and comfy sitting area or on your private terrace. All rooms are equipped with fans and A/C.

DOUBLE ROOMS

Double rooms with two twin-size beds are also available in the lower garden, with their private terrace and bathroom. The room can be set up with two twin beds or one king-size bed, and can accommodate up to 2 guests on an approximate area of 215 sq/ft or 20 m2. All rooms are equipped with fans and A/C.

THE FOOD

Vegan, vegetarian and (some) animal protein options are available for you, according to your body needs and personal requirements.

Be assured that all our food is organically grown, locally sourced, with strong plant/vegetable/fruit-based components and that if it is going to end up on our plate, we know where it is coming from, that it is free of chemicals, and has been minimally processed. And above all, it tastes great!
