Workshops
The workshop program will lead participants through a series of aspects specific to the retreat. This will help ground your vacation in a practical, simple, extraordinary experience of the life transforming potential of yoga.

Personal Evaluation
A brief evaluation of each individual’s ability, intentions and expectations helps a lot with assisting each course participant to make the best of the retreat opportunities.

Personal training, to maximise each participant’s individual opportunities for increased performance skills or remedial (yoga therapy) from the retreat. Attention to such detail is a vital component in the pursuit of health and excellence.

Evening Satsang (Talks & Discourse)

Surfing

The retreat is situated on the edge of the mile long golden sands of Muizenberg beach, which is known to be one of the best beaches in the entire world to learn to surf. This is due to the Its gradual curve of the ocean floor that forms the gentle peaks that roll in forfrom up to 300m, allowing maximum time to surf the face of the wave. The bottom is free of rocks and there are no dangerous rip currents. April to September is the best season for surfing this coastline, with average conditions of moderate light winds and 2-3ft high surf, perfect for learning, and excellent for longboarding for those with experience in this style. The water temperature is mild, ranging from 60-65 F (16-18 C).
We provide all equipment and qualified instructors to give a daily 1.5 hour lesson. Experienced surfers can use this time to free-surf.

One of the days we will take you on a half-day surf trip to the other side of the Cape Peninsula (Cape Town peninsula feature two awesome coastlines!) to experience a different beach and surf scene.

Location

Cape Town Surf Yoga is set in a historical building right on the beach, at the iconic Surfer’s Corner in Muizenberg, a coastal suburb 20 minutes drive from the City Centre. The area is wedged in between the evergreen slopes of the Table Mountain belt, with a wide variety of plant and animal life and great hiking trails, and tThe temperate Southern Atlantic ocean with boasts some of the most perfect learn-to-surf waves in the world.

Quaint seaside villages are within walking distance and offer coffee shops, restaurants, galleries and points of interest. There is also a train service with regular departures to the City Centre.
