Yoga at our kite camp

We teach yoga twice a day in our surfcamp, surrounded by dunes, with a view of the lagoon or the Atlantic and a fresh sea breeze. The yoga lessons are versatile and contain pranayama (breathing exercises), changing asanas, meditation and relaxation phases. You will learn the traditional style of Hatha Yoga under the guidance of our trained yoga instructor Kayla, gently strengthening and becoming aware of your mind and body.

 

The yoga week with us will enrich your yoga experience and fill you with energy and strength, the perfect way to begin and end your kitesurfing day.

Additionally, you can book physiotherapy massages by our physiotherapist Vici easily on premises.
