Surf & Soul Retreat

Imagine waking along with the rising sun to meditate right besides the ocean and listen to nothing but the sounds of  the ocean waves crashingPreparing yourself with some wake up beach yoga and start your day with a surf lesson in the Arabian Sea. Goa with its rather soft waves is the perfect location to learn surfing. A region known for its gold-sand beaches and good-time vibes!

After an active start to your day, you will enjoy a sublime brunch buffet and find some time and space just for yourself. Time out for just being, enjoying the relaxation of life by the beach.

In the late afternoons immerse in Yin Yoga Healing sessions, dedicating some time to a mindful meditative yoga practice to activate your chi flow and body’s innate healing powers.

Join us for this unforgettable Surf & Soul experience filled with yoga, surf and self-development – just exactly how we like it. Learn to surf, restore with yin yoga, pamper yourself with our stay at Nalanda Wellness Retreat and spend your days enjoying the beach in the shade of a coconut tree.

In yoga and surfing, we play our sensations, each time awaiting a new invitation. We ride the edges of our poses with a gentle flowing breath like a surfer riding the waves of the ocean. Yoga and surfing are just such a fantastic combination in so many ways. Surfing is active and dynamic. There is quite a difference between its yoga mindful movements and meditation practices.

But then, there are a lot of similarities. Going with the flow, tuning in, and listening to your body closely as we are being connected to the ocean. It’s the feeling of complete oneness, which requires us to be in tune with nature and our bodies.

Surfing is a YANG form of exercise, full of movement, rhythm, and repetition. Through this movement our muscles expand and contract, growing stronger. But by this we are also limiting our bodies, we tend to lose our natural softness, becoming more inflexible and increasingly tight. With all the paddling and repetitive take-offs on a fun surf morning, we need the YIN in order to keep the flexibility and longevity in our bodies.

So, if surfing is your YANG, let yoga be your YING. The combination of Surfing with Yin Yoga gives us the balance our bodies need to experience optimum health and happiness.

One way to think of balance is this: a total state of health that incorporates togetherness of body and mind. To be balanced is a way of being and a state of mind. Yin Yoga can restore this balance and be a soothing balm to heal and rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul. Let us take you in the afternoons on an inner Yin Yoga Healing journey through the Taoist elements and learn about their energetic value and the chi meridian flow in your body. When you awaken and align your body’s underlying energy, you activate your innate process of healing and transformation. Yin Yoga will help you create profound shifts in your physical and emotional well-being. We will demystify how energy affects everything you do and feel and show you how to mindful work with your body and mind. These Yin Yoga Healing sessions will help you build vitality, unravel energetic blockages, and boost your immunity.

With our Surf & Soul program, you have the opportunity and space to let your mind learn from the body’s experience of learning new things and cultivate a free spirit. To love life and live free. To be in touch with nature and yourself.

And then, we might realize, that there is nothing more grounding than a body and a mind that has decided to be whole.

By the end of this retreat, you will feel stronger, healthier, and better able to thrive and flow in the life you are meant to live!
