Yoga Surf Retreat with the Denises* - Popoyo, Nicaragua
Denise Waling and Denise Woods are yoga instructors with a common vision. To feel good and have fun! They started working together as yogis several years ago at the The Yoga Place Los Angeles studio operated by Denise Waling. Together they have hosted several fundraising events for Yoga Gives Back . A few years ago they happened to take up surfing at the same time and became instant surf buddies. This trip is all about combining their love for yoga and surfing and sharing it with you!

We think your practice will really get a chance to blossom and grow in this setting.
Yoga will be offered twice daily. Each morning Denise Waling will offer a vibrant power vinyasa flow class to start the day right. Each evening Denise Woods will ease you into the evening with a gentle/yin/restorative class to top off the day and invite deep restful sleep.
This gorgeous 2nd floor yoga studio is spacious and will allow our group to really stretch out. Cool breezes and amazing 270 degree ocean views await.
These classes are all optional and on any given day you choose what you need for your pace.
There is no better place to learn surfing in Nicaragua than Magnific Rock. They are located literally just above one of the only protected bays in the Popoyo region, which offers a fun, long, left, mellow learning wave. But the bay also offers the experienced surfer the possibility to practice more advanced moves on the crumbling face as the tides push out. And, of course Popoyo main break is only a short walk away when your skills are ready. Other amazing waves are within walking distance and more by taxi or boat which can be arranged.
We will have our own surf instructor for the duration of the trip. You'll enjoy at least two surf lessons in small groups for maximum attention and the Denises will be assisting.
Surfboards will be available throughout the week. Longboards, soft-tops, and shortboards. Take a board anytime you feel like going out!
We can arrange for other interesting activites if you feel the urge for adventure. These activities are not included in the package but let us know what you're interested in and we'll provide you with the various prices.
