The Amazing Location!

Our hot yoga surf retreat will be held on and overlooking the world renowned Fistral Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. This golden sands beach gets some of the best waves in the country and is the perfect place to learn to surf. The beach is life guarded and all our qualified surf instructors also have their lifeguard qualification meaning you are in very safe hands.

The Yoga Studio

Oceanflow Yoga Studios has been running for over five years. It is located at the south end of Fistral beach on the Pentire Headland. We have have grandstand views of Fistral Beach from our Vinyasa studio where you can practice and watch the waves roll in at the same time. We will use this studio for eating in and also for the yin yoga session on the Saturday evening. The dedicated hot studio has the latest infra red panels to keep a consistent heat in the studio throughout the class.

Hot Yoga Studio

No experience of yoga is necessary as we will be making the classes accessible for all levels. We would advise however that you take a hot yoga class before hand to check that you enjoy it before committing to the weekend. The hot classes will be 60 minute classes taught in 40 degree heat.

Surf Yoga

We will be holding an outdoor surf yoga class on the grounds of the Headland Hotel above Fistral Beach. It has amazing views and is a truly inspirational place to practice yoga from. The class will be surf specific, aimed at yoga postures that will help you stay balanced on your board in the surf lesson which follows.


Surf Lessons and Coasteering

The surf lesson and coasteer session will be taught by the friendly team at The Surf Sanctuary who operate out of the Headland Hotel. Dom and his instructors have had years of experience teaching people of all levels and abilities to surf. They are fully qualified, professional instructors who have a fantastic teaching style which immediately put people at ease who may be nervous about learning to surf for the first time. All wetsuits and surfboards are provided and the success rate of standing if it is your first class is remarkably high (especially for yogis and if you participate in the surf yoga class beforehand). If you are wondering what coasteering is...leave it as a surprise. This is the absolute highlight of the weekend (and it is brilliant for building water confidence if you are nervous in the ocean) :-)

The Itinerary

Please note this will change depending on tides and surf conditions. We aim to confirm the final itinerary with about a week to go.

FRIDAY:

6pm meet at Oceanflow Yoga Studio for a HOT yoga class to stretch out the body after your travels.

8pm we will serve a delicious organic, gluten free light evening meal to nourish you after the yoga class.

SATURDAY:

7.30am in the HOT room for a sweaty 60 minute Bikram express session to wake the body up and get the energy moving ready for the day ahead.

8.30am ice cool, hydrating smoothies waiting for you after class

FREE TIME - grab breakfast back at your hotel or to explore some of the lovely breakfast places we have on our doorstep. We would suggest a lovely beach or cliff walk after brekkie to digest and take in the stunning coastline that surrounds us (or maybe just take a good book down to the beach and relax!)

11am meet on the terrace at the Headland Hotel for a 45 minute outdoor surf-yoga class (more world class views!) to warm the body up and open it out ready for the surf lesson.

11.45am time to hit the water with the team from The Surf Sanctuary.

2pm we will then have lunch ready for you back at the studio. This is the time to absorb the surf stoke and recall stories of getting barrelled on your first wave of the day or seeing a dolphin jump out of the wave in front of you.

FREE TIME Suitably filled and re-energised, you then have the afternoon to yourself. There are so many options open to you and we would be happy to arrange things in advance on your behalf. Some ideas include the following:

  • Horse riding down the River Gannel and onto Crantock Beach
  • Hire a board and get back in the water for another surf!
  • Taking a SUP boarding tour down the River Gannel
  • Take a cliff walk from Pollyjoke (Porth Joke) around to Holywell Bay
  • Book a treatment in our Wellbeing Studio (Bowen, Massage or Reiki)

We have listed a few of our favourites above but the list really is endless with so many amazing things to see and do. Alternatively you can take a stroll down to the beach with your favourite book and get to work on your tan!

6.00pm back in the vinyasa studio for a gentle, stretching yin yoga practice followed by a yoga nidra to calm the body and mind down preparing you for a good nights sleep.

7.30pm we will serve another delicious organic, gluten free evening meal whilst we enjoy the fiery red skies as the sun sets over the ocean.

SUNDAY:

11am meet in the HOT studio (We give you a slight lie in on Sunday!) This time it is a HOT FLOW class preparing us for another awesome session in the surf.

12.15pm We hit the ocean again with Dom and his team but this time to explore some of the local coastline with a coasteering session.

2.30pm After drying off in the sun it is back to the studio for one final hearty lunch and recap of the weekend. This signifies the end of the retreat and we hope you will return home feeling rejuvenated, exhilarated and wanting to come back for more! Recent studies have suggested time and time again that money spent on memories has far more value than money spent on possessions. Enrich your life, nourish your soul and never stop having fun!
