Add this Neck Stretch to Your Post-Surf Yoga Routine

Feeling neck tension from sitting at your desk all day? Or from a long surf-session? Woke up on the wrong side of the bed? Need a little yoga fix-me-up?

block. neck. magic.

It’s the most requested yoga sequence during most of our retreats, and if you’ve been on a retreat with SWA before, I’m sure you already know exactly what we’re talking about! Its simple. Its magical. It feels so good. Its also pretty difficult to replicate without the guidance of a teacher, so we’re extra stoked that our yoga teacher Reesie just released an 11-minute tutorial video of the infamous, “block neck move”. This stretch-massage duo for the neck has yet to be named, so try it out and let us know if you can come up with a good name for it!

Reesie’s online Yin Yoga classes are open for optional donation. Her info is as follows- Venmo: Cherise-Richards or PayPal: reesier@yahoo.com

Yin Yoga for the Hips

Unwind with another virtual Yin Yoga class brought to you by SWA instructor Reesie and her adorable lil’ pup Ruban. Although we can’t practice Yin Yoga in the jungle with all of you as usual right now, we’re stoked to have access to the next best thing… which is Reesie’s donation-based Yin class right at home! Good music playlist and all. This hour-long Yin style class is centered around the hips.

Reesie is accepting donations for her classes through Venmo (@cherise-Richards) or PayPal (reesier@yahoo.com) but in her own words, “…if you can’t, dude I get it. Either way, hope this feels good!”.

If you missed Reesie’s most recent shoulder class, you can find it here. Enjoy!

 

 

Co-ed Retreat in Nicaragua at La Bahia

A few times a year we offer co-ed experiences so couples can come down and join us.

We just wrapped up an amazing co-ed retreat at one of our favorite locations in Northern Nicaragua. This time around we had three returning guests bring their menfolk and one pair of man friends. We scored awesome offshore waves which is typical for this time of year, and uncrowded surf sessions.

This was a really special week with an amazing cast of characters who were super fun to hang out with and were sending it in the water. Wipeouts and silliness abounds.

Come play next season! See more info on the location here.

We just posted dates for next season for December and January.
