YoGA & surf retreat
The benefits of the combination of surfing and yoga are many.
The yoga sessions during a week of intense surfing will help you keep your body healthy.
With yoga you can literally rebalance your body, mind and soul.
Feeling more energy and recharged, improving your body’s flexibility, strength and balance, reducing or relieving aches and pains in the body, and much more. During the yoga sessions we focus specifically on stretching and strengthening the muscles you need for surfing.
These benefits work hand in hand with improving your surfing. A great way to achieve great results without straining your body!
Yoga & Surf retreat with Jane Bakx at Boutique hotel 0031 in a true kitesurfer’s paradise.
DATE: 9 March - 16 March 2019
- 647,50 EUR - shared room (2 pers./price p.p.)

In the mornings Jane offers a dynamic flow stretch & strengthening yoga session (75 min). These sessions start with a short meditation to make you connect to your body and quiet your mind, making you more focused. We move with the breath, strengthening and stretching shoulders, hips and legs and working on your core and balance. This physical practice and the connection to your body is a great tool to improve your surfing.
At the end of the day, Jane offers a sunset stretching and relaxing yoga session (75 min). This is a more passive practice, aiming to stretch the deeper laying connective tissues of the body and find full relaxation. Also stretching the muscles you might have been using during the day while surfing. This practice will prepare your body and mind for your next day on the water.
All levels are welcome. Jane will make sure every guest/yogi gets what he or she needs.
Cumbuco is one of the most idyllic and best kite surfing spots in the world. This place is known for its reliable wind year-round. The high sand dunes help create an almost constant, warm wind, which blows side-shore in the mornings and side-on shore in the afternoons. You won't need a wetsuit, the water temperature varies between 22 and 27 degrees Celsius all year round. You do need to bring a lycra shirt and a good sunblock, however, because Cumbuco lies 3 degrees from the equator and the sun is almost perpendicular to the earth.
The sea close to the resort is calm and there is plenty of space to learn to kite in a safe way. Whether you are a complete beginner or want to improve your board skills, the kitesurfing lessons can help you become more confident and assured in the water. The instructors can teach in English, Dutch and German. About 6 kms outside Cumbuco there is a freshwater lake (Lagoa do Cauipe). There are no waves on the lake, which makes it very suited to beginners.
The Wave surfing:
The instructors will take you by buggy to the beach where the best waves are. There you will get the basics in wave surfing explained: how to stand on the board, how to keep your balance and many other practical tips.
In general, you should be able to “ride” some waves after 4 lessons.
Other activities to do in the area:
- horse riding
- buggy tours
- sand boarding
- sailing with a Jangada (traditional fishing boat)
- stand up paddling

You will stay at the wonderful boutique hotel 0031.
This hotel lies close to the magnificent, still untouched, beach and the centre of Cumbuco. It is uniquely situated in the sand dunes and borders on a nature reserve. It is not a mass-product that they are offering, but a place where you can find a home away from home. After arrival, a drink will help you recuperate from your journey and information about the practicalities of your stay in Brazil will be given. A bottle of cold water has already been put into the fridge of your room and a bowl of fresh fruit is waiting for you.
The boutique hotel offers fifteen rooms 35 m2 which are suitable for two people and two rooms of 55 m2 for four people. Each apartment is roomy, light and has been decorated in a Mediterranean style. Some apartments have sea view and view on the dunes. In the very spacious bed/living room you can find all comforts; large beds with box-spring mattresses, a comfortable sofa, an air-conditioner, fan, a bar fridge and a modern, elegant bathroom with shower and toilet. The apartments are cleaned every day and the sheets and towels are changed every other day.
The swimming pool, which is exclusively for the guests, is surrounded by tropical vegetation and by a number of very comfortable deck chairs. "Hangin' out" for a day on the side of the pool is certainly not a punishment.
Every morning an extensive breakfast is served on the veranda of the hotel. With a fantastic view of the sea you can enjoy our coffee, tea, fresh fruit juices, freshly baked bread, fruit salads, various cold cuts, muffins and eggs cooked the way you like them. Perfect start for a day full of yoga and surfing!
