The Benefits

Yoga has far reaching benefits for any sport-mainly for developing a stronger core and balance.  Yoga becomes even more beneficial to your health when you suddenly start surfing several hours a day.  There are few other sports that put you in the position that surfing does and it is important to keep your body limber after some big surf sessions.  Surfing relies on your core strength, which is great for transferring back to skiing and other sports.  Many people are surprised how much they get into yoga after trying it.

Yoga classes at Peaks ‘n Swells embrace the Costa Rican environment.  Wake up and stroll over to the yoga session looking out at the ocean, surrounded by jungle and let some of the most talented instructors lead you through a surf tailored session.

Each of our daily classes have a slightly different emphasis but the focus is always on the physical benefits of yoga for surfing which means flexibility and mobility. There is usually a mix of ability and previous experience within the group but our yoga teacher will tailor each class to you as much as possible.
