anamaya: surf school
It’s no secret that Costa Rica is well known worldwide to be a hotbed of surfing and yoga. Surfing at Anamaya is for those who are complete beginners and want to learn how to surf, as well as for seasoned surfers who want to take their skill level to new heights or simply just rent a board and go. Our instructors will provide you with individual attention and modify their lessons to meet your needs and goals so you can learn at your own pace.
Along with a week full of catching waves (5 sessions) and feeling the power of the ocean beneath your feet, you’ll also have the option to enjoy daily yoga sessions to improve your flexibility and strength. Many avid surfers, in order to enhance stamina and prevent injuries, commonly practice yoga. And if you’re feeling sore, you’ll be in the right spot for exceptional body work!
Anamaya’s Soul Surfing Yoga Retreat offers adventure, relaxation, and overall wellness set in a perfect tropical paradise. We also have massage and a plethora of spa services available to our guests, as well as a number of exciting excursions that Costa Rica is well known for. We will do our best to fulfill all your wildest expectations about what a retreat vacation in paradise should be.
Yoga at Anamaya
We practice an energizing flow 6 mornings a week before breakfast on our main yoga deck overlooking 270 degrees of epic ocean and coastline views. Then in the early evening around sunset 4 days a week we hold a more relaxing and restorative type practice on our lower yoga deck.
Where We Surf:
We take a van each day to the best possible surf spots in the area, depending on the size of the waves, tides, and the dynamics of the group. The waves are good enough here that surfing is available with Anamaya all year round! Our two favorite spots are Playa Grande in Montezuma, and Playa Hermosa in Santa Teresa:
One of the country’s most beautiful beaches, it is a 30-minute walk through beach and jungle trails, past waterfalls and beautiful scenery. The waves here are fairly small, but consistent and no rocks. It’s excellent for beginners.
Just north of Santa Teresa is the prettiest and broadest beach around, with larger waves and a point break. It’s worth the drive to come out here, and we take Anamaya’s guests here every Wendesday afternoon for a sunset excursion with optional surf lesson.
