The combination of surfing and yoga is becoming more and more popular, which we think is not surprising. People are increasingly looking for a holiday with a theme and the hype around surfing has also given yoga a boost. From experience, we can say: ‘what’s better than a surf and yoga holiday’. Because combining yoga and a surf holiday has a number of advantages.
You are very active during your holiday and that is of course very good. The days when a holiday was all about sun, sea and booze are a bit over. People are increasingly looking for fitcations. A surfing and yoga holiday also ensures that you will be surrounded by many like-minded people, which is nice to spend your holiday with. What also applies to many people is the inner peace they find. Because both during surfing and during yoga you can completely relax mentally. If, after a two-hour surf session, you think: ‘what have I been thinking about for the last hour’, then mission accomplished.
Also, surfing is or can be quite physical. Afterwards, relaxing and stretching can be very nice, both physically and mentally. And that is probably the main reason why the combination of surfing and yoga on holiday is so popular. From experience, we also know which surfing accommodations offer the better yoga, because this is certainly not equally good everywhere.
Surf and yoga have been inseparable for a number of years now and are also becoming an increasingly important part of holidays. Nowadays, many surf accommodations offer the option of yoga lessons, but in some places the quality of this combination is much higher than in others.
