Surf holiday packages
Yoga, Pilates and Surf Package
This package includes:
- Seven nights accommodation in Villa Azul or Lotus Retreat
- Three days surfing (equipment, wetsuits, beach transfers and expert tuition included)
- Daily sessions of Pilates, yoga and meditation at our retreat or on the beach
- Full-body massage
- Daily breakfasts (Villa Azul package includes 5 vegetarian evening meals/ Lotus Retreat package includes 2 vegetarian evening meals)
Prices from 865 euros at the Lotus Retreat in single pool view room or shared twin space from 795 euros at Villa Azul for the shared Casa Pedro twin rooms for Yoga, Pilates and Surf package. Please enquire with your room preference, and whether you prefer shared or private options and we will confirm the surf package price for you. Please note, surf courses run based on the best conditions for you to learn in (tides, wind etc). This may mean you will miss one of the twice daily classes. When you sign up for the package, please do take into account you may miss one class on your surf days – not to worry – there are always 2 daily classes and the surf days are often 4+ hours so you will be getting plenty of activity and value for money.
Surf classes and courses
The surf classes and courses are provided by International Surfing Association (ISA) and British Surfing Association (BSA) qualified instructors, who have spent many years on the island sharing their passion for the sport and Fuerteventura’s waves. Surfing classes and courses are available for all abilities and levels, from absolute beginners to aspiring pros. Go surfing for a day or take a course – see below for more details.
Yoga and Pilates instruction
Make the most of your time out of the water with morning and evening yoga and Pilates classes. We offer a wide choice of classes – including hatha yoga, power yoga, vinyasa flow, mat-based Pilates and meditation – so whether you want to relax your body and mind or challenge yourself to a more dynamic class, the choice is yours. Our experienced, specialised instructors are passionate about what they do and our small class sizes mean you will be able to get the most out of each class.
Please note the surf pick up time is dependent on the tide for the best learning conditions – this may mean missing a morning or afternoon class or leaving class a little early. We have extra classes in our schedule to compensate for this (some days with three classes daily). The course is planned so you have plenty of action but still have energy to enjoy your week – just leave it to us to arrange a great holiday for you!
The benefits of yoga and Pilates for surf
The benefits of both yoga and Pilates for surfing performance include increasing:
- Strength – especially core strength from Pilates
