Surfing is much more then standing on a surfboard and riding a wave. It is the art of enjoying the moment. It is the art of being one with ourselves, with the sea, with nature. It is the art of forgetting about everything around you and letting go. It is the art of being happy!
In our “Surf the Moment-Retreat“ we will spend one really special week with you and like-minded women gathering moments and making them to your personal happy moment. We will learn about our limits, become aware of our next steps to progress, and celebrate every little success!
When I takeoff in a wave, poised on a silver of surboard, I am both fish and bird. On each occasion of bliss and fear, I am educated into the complex ways of the sea – a constant lesson in mindfulness.

You will learn the most important and basic surfing techniques in our retreat. All of our surf sessions will match your special needs, your body, and your mind. At the end of the week, you will stay confidently on your surfboard riding the waves of joy. Next to basic surfing techniques
you also will develop sea self-confidence. This means you will be able to consciously select the best surf spot fitting to your surf level. You will experience the sea and the waves from a female surfer’s perspective. This will boost your confidence to travel by your own in the future.
For many surfers yoga is the perfect balance to relax from the energy-sapping and actionpacked time in the water. Yoga is the conscious connection between body, soul, and your own mind. You will be able to calm down during the yoga sessions. While you surf the waves of your own breathing you will strengthen your awareness of your experiences in the sea. Breathing calms down your soul and guides your movement. You will learn how to increase your balance, power, and flexibility. All this will support you to be more active and more self-confident in the sea.
Surfing and yoga in our retreat follows the mote to enjoy and keep the moment. We will let go our thoughts about responsibilities in everyday life. All of this will happen in a secure surrounding with like-minded women. We will focus on all little happy moments by activating and developing our own resources in order to boost our resiliency in and outside the water. Therefore, every day of our retreat focusses a different topic:
- Day 1: Open – Let go of everyday life and open for new experiences
- Day 2: Take Off – Be brave and grow
- Day 3: Reflection – Activate your inner resources
- Day 4: Insight – Become aware of your own skills as superpowers
- Day 5: Routine – Collect all your happy moments for your everyday life
Surfing and yoga will match to all these five topics. Furthermore, we will organize one matching mindfulness activity a day to enjoy and value your time at the sea (e. g. mindfulness walks, beach meditations, sea dips, snorkeling, bonfires, creative writing, arts, …).
Sea is the symbol of calmness, peace, spirituality, and emotional balance. The moving sea waves know a lot about your inner feelings. The sea mainly symbolizes your calm mind, fluctuating emotions and internal strength.
