Surf & Yoga with Pura Vida Surfers

Enjoy surfing with us while connecting with yourself. The fun, playful, and challenging surfing together with the mindful, relaxing, and balancing yoga is a combination that many love.

The practice of yoga gives strength and flexibility to the body, and peace to the mind. By finding focus and clearing the mind, you will progress more in surfing. Breathing is also crucial in surfing and a main focus in yoga. Properly breathing relaxes the body and enhances your focus.

Build strength, increase flexibility and energy levels, bend, twist, breathe, and release tensions in yoga to become a better surfer.
