Non-toxic sunscreen for the family
If you are considering a vacation at Bodhi, I urge you to do both surfing and yoga. In fact, I urge you to commit your whole week to doing both. We are so thankful that we did five days of each!

Surfing and yoga, together

After decades of surfing and yoga experience, we know that the two are a perfect match in every way. For that reason, there are an equal number of both activities in our weekly surf and yoga camps. During your Bodhi Sessions week, you will go through surfing and yoga curricula that are designed to complement one another and to facilitate your learning process physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Not only that, we the owners of Bodhi Surf + Yoga are also your surf and yoga instructors — we are experienced, passionate, and competent practitioners, and more importantly, patient and enthusiastic teachers. Our topmost goal is that you really learn both yoga and surfing, and walk away with great memories and new skills.

A different kind of vacation

The Bodhi Sessions will provide you with a unique travel experience, one that leaves you feeling enriched and rejuvenated after a one-of-a-kind adventure in a pristine area of the world. In the spirit of experiential learning, you will both learn and do, be active in an outdoor classroom, and achieve personal goals.

Sessions also exemplify an “off-the-beaten-path” kind of tourism that focuses on community engagement, cultural exchange, and immersion into the local way of life. We provide just enough structure to keep you active and just enough flexibility to allow personal growth, friendship-building, and some much needed R-and-R!

Using business for good

At Bodhi Surf + Yoga, we have opted to create a business that does good for people and planet. Corporate responsibility has been woven into our business development and operations since we started in 2010, and this was reaffirmed when we received our B Corp Certification in 2016 and joined the ranks of businesses who “[use] the power of business to solve social and environmental problems”.

Most importantly, we are happy to be a small, owner-operated business that personally assures the satisfaction of our guests and takes the initiative to better our local and global communities.





With the Bodhi Sessions, our flagship yoga and surf camp option, we’ve considered everything — all that is included (or not) is deliberate and aims to provide you with the “best of Bodhi” experience. During your Bodhi Session, you will participate in a total of 10 activities — 5 surf lessons and 5 yoga classes.

On top of your surfing and yoga sessions, you will also have the opportunity to take a guided walking tour around the community of Bahia Ballena and learn about our community’s history, development, and challenges; visit a local waterfall and take in the lush jungle scenery; and enjoy a day off to either rest and recharge or participate in another activity or tour!


Daily breakfast (except on your free day) and three dinners are included in your week-long stay in Bahia Ballena to provide a sense of sharing and community at the Bodhi lodge, while also giving you the opportunity to sample the local fare and support our community’s economy. Also included: a much-needed massage after all the physical activity you will be doing!


Bodhi Sessions are community engaged surf and yoga camps designed for travelers who want to disconnect from their routine and spend time “recharging their batteries” in Bahia Ballena — a quaint community with vast, sandy beaches, and stunning viridescent scenery.

The week’s main aims are to keep you actively experiencing the area so you may return home feeling physically fit and mentally rejuvenated, as well as to provide you with a variety of opportunities to meet new people and have different experiences, so that upon your departure, you will have many new connections and wonderful memories to take home with you!
