Yoga Teacher Training Journeys

Recharge, realign and reconnect

December 28th, 2010 Posted in Yoga Teacher Perspectives

If you have an intrepid spirit, a desire to reconnect with nature and tune back in to body, mind and spirit, then the combination of yoga and surfing may be your perfect match.

These complimentary traditions are both forms of meditation in motion. They encourage us to connect back to the present moment, to our surroundings and to ourselves. All the while developing our energy, endurance, flexibility and body awareness.

When we integrate yoga and surfing, a synergy takes place. At once, the surfer becomes more agile, has a deeper understanding of his body and breath and is less prone to injury, while the yogi gains strength, endurance and enhances his connection to his surroundings.

The beauty of both yoga and surfing is that they are far more than just forms of exercise. When we become completely present and completely peaceful, an alchemy of self, spirit and surrounding takes place. There is the opportunity to see that we are part of something greater than ourselves. In yoga, there is the union of our individual selves with our greater selves, or Atma. In surfing there is the harmony and synchronicity of our body with nature. When combining the two, we are taking a holistic approach towards yoking body, mind and spirit.

This is why, in conjunction with the highly experienced boys from Mojo Surf, we’ve designed a seven day retreat for beginners through to advanced yogis and surfers alike to explore these parallel traditions in a safe and fun environment.

Our surf/yoga retreat, starting January 15, is located at the unspoiled Tallows beach. There will be daily yoga and surf lessons, pranyama, beautiful, fresh food and plenty of time to relax and explore the surrounding areas. If you’re up for a bit of adventure, some time to chill out in paradise and tap back into yourself, then jump on board – it’s going to be sensational.
