Time for the most important meal of the day, we know at the moment surfing and practicing yoga is all you can think about. But let's focus on your performance, without breakfast you won't be 100%. So first things first! Now show what you got, I’m sure you already learned a lot. Who knows you even catch your first wave?! I can feel the excitement! Paddle away and go for it, girl.
After lunch, we will connect our mind, body and soul with a relaxing yoga session. Exploring and getting to know the limits of our bodies and the strength of our mind. Having control of our mind is essential to a surfer's life, as the sport goes beyond just sliding with the water's flow.
We immerse together on this adventure to transform self-observation into practice of surfing and out of the water we understand the psychology behind the sport. Our mission is to have group talks where all women can talk about their experience and ask questions. As well as doing simple activities where we'll discuss and express all fear, self-criticism, insecurity and many other topics with no judgment and a lot of empathy. Looking to take out of our chest whatever concerns you and use them as a reflection and strength.
