Surf & Yoga Holidays | Mentawai Islands

Yoga compliments surfing perfectly. It builds strength, flexibility, balance & reduces stress. The connection is so much more than a physical benefit, although its certainly a great way to stay in shape when the surf goes flat. Considered somewhat mystical, yoga is a 5,000 year old ancient science. Core beliefs are based on controlling the breath, which in turn can control the mind which effectively can control the body. Besides being a great form of exercise, it also builds core strength throughout your body for surfing whilst relaxing your fatigued muscles. As a surfer, your muscles are constantly contracting & relaxing while in the water often becoming filled with tension. Yoga helps lengthen the muscles and free up the physical knotting accumulated that is inevitable when surfing.
