BY ATLANTIC SURF LODGE TEAM | 16. Juni – 30. Juni 2018.
The perfect week to dive into summer: Be there when the sun awakens in France and the beaches are still empty. We chose this week on purpose around the summer solstice as the long lasting summer day make this time of the year to one of the most beautiful, the temperatures announce summer but at the same time we benefit from the advantages of the low season. We start the day with yoga on the dune and view over the endless coastline along the Atlantic ocean, have dinner outside and with daylight and enjoy the sunset with red wine on the dune. It is totally up to you how you spend the time between the yoga sessions: surfing, French classes or just relaxing at the beach or in the garden. As with all Yoga Delight retreats also the Atlantic Surf Lodge accomodates other guests as well, so that you can travel with a friend or partner who wants to do less or no yoga at all.
Each morning a new dynamic Vinyasa Flow will wake you up – on the dune with view over the ocean, afterwards an ample breakfast buffet is awaiting you. The time after breakfast you can spend as you like: Surfing and beach, table tennis and slackline in the garden, bike tours in the pine forrest or trips to the beautiful Basque country (Bayonne, Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, San Sebastian) or to the close surf mekka Hossegor. Maybe you want to improve your French? We work with a local language school and can organize a private or mini group course.
In the afternoon it’s „yoga time“ again! For the evening classes we change between restorative Yin Yoga (3x) and Special classes (2x). The Special classes are the benefit of the retreat: They are designed so you can intensify your individual practice! We talk about all kind of questions and work on positions which are challenging you – no matter if it’s Downward Facing Dog or Handstand, Cobra or Full Wheel. Your yoga experience does not matter here, as well as in any other of our classes!
For dinner we will have excellent food, vegan or vegetarian on demand, also in consideration to any allergies. The evening we chill out with a bottle of French red wine in the garden, for sunset on the Dune or in one of the nearby beach bars.
