Since our inception in 2010, we have been both a surf and yoga school. Why? Well, Bodhi was started by three surfers and a yogini, and, naturally, we wanted to utilize all of our strengths and talents in building our company.
From watching the results play out over and over, we have realized something incredible: surfing and yoga not only go well together, but are a perfect match in every way, and each benefits our guests’ learning of the other.
Surfing and yoga: better together
We designed our Bodhi Sessions surf and yoga camp after five years of being in business and working with countless individuals and groups, some of whom did surfing or yoga on their own, and others who did them together. We noticed that our guests benefitted so greatly from doing the two together; that they learned better, their bodies were more relaxed, and their minds more open. Not only that, we knew that if we could just get our guests to commit to five of each, we would be able to have the time and opportunity to really teach them, help them build strong foundations, and impart the many valuable lessons to be learned both on the mat and in the ocean.
Nowadays, we shy away from single surf lessons or one-time yoga classes, only because we know that we can only teach a fraction of what we believe are the very important basics in a day. So whether you are more strongly interested in one or the other, or are curious about each activity, whether your most pressing desire is either learning to surf or improving your yoga practice — we highly encourage you to try both and commit to doing the full week of Bodhi Sessions.

How yoga can benefit the process of learning to surf
There isn’t much in life, physical or mental, that yoga doesn’t contribute positively to. For one thing, it has amazing physical and physiological benefits, with practitioners seeing an increase in strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance. Even more valuable are its mental and spiritual benefits. The true, ancient yoga practice was actually much more mental than physical, and highlighted a great many “golden rules” in such a way that was more about self-reflection than self-reproach.

How surfing can benefit your yoga practice
There are many lessons to be learned in nature, and the ocean itself is a veritable classroom when it comes to aggregating knowledge. Since the process of learning to surf has everything to do with being in the ocean, harnessing its power, and learning to let go, its lessons translate greatly to life. There are several benefits that relate directly to your yoga practice (which is actually designed to be more mental than physical), and most relate to the fact that surfing is the perfect place to put what you’ve learned on the mat into action in an uncontrollable environment.
