SURF WITH OASIS

As part of your program you will have:

1-hour of a Surf Theory class on Monday morning on the top roof of El Nopal Surf House. This will be your first contact with surfing and our instructors before you get into the water. This 1-hour class is focused mainly on ocean knowledge, safety and basic surfing techniques.

You will have 5 surf lessons at beaches around Puerto Escondido with the best conditions of the day for your level. Classes are roughly 2 hours, and you will be placed with someone of a similar surfing level as the classes work with 2 students per instructor. 

 

Surfing equipment and transportation to the beach is also included in your package. The school will also provide a rash guard to use for classes, and you will have your personal surf journal to register your progress.

4 coaching sessions during the afternoons (Tuesday to Thursday) where an experienced surf instructor will give you useful technique information as well as photo and video analyze to keep progressing in your surf.

Group photo sessions during your surf lesson twice a week.

1 half day surf trip to a remote and paradisiacal beach with nice waves to practice what you have learned along the week.

yOGA AND MEDITATION

A symbiotic relationship exists between yoga, meditation and surfing. From surfing you gain immersion and connection with nature by capturing positive energy. It is a fun 'challenge with yourself and the waves'; from yoga and meditation you get a great exercise that helps to decrease stress, increase awareness and improve balance and flexibility.

 

To provide a comprehensive and supportive experience, you will be involved in a daily morning practice that aims to prepare your body and mind for surfing. In the evenings, a slower, more mindful practice will be offered in order to relax your body and mind and to prepare you for the final meditation to end the day with awareness.

COACHING CLASSES

Tuesday and Thursday a photographer will gather photos during your morning surf lessons. This material will be used for the coaching sessions that will take place Wednesday and Friday in the afternoon class.

Our surf instructors' team will analyze the pictures and give you useful feedback and tips in order to keep progressing and developing skills on the sport.

Students will also benefit from technique videos and useful information given by our head coach and surf legend Roger Ramirez.

By the end of this experience these pictures will be given to each student for no extra cost, just remember to bring a USB.

KUNDALINI & SOUND BATH

Through the Kundalini laboratory and sound bath we will have the opportunity to experiment and integrate refined physical and mental healing techniques.

 

Kundalini yoga is considered a science of the body and mind that has no boundaries or distinctions - it is for everyone, it is Universal. It represents one of the oldest and most powerful practices of yoga. It is known as the yoga of consciousness, focusing on self-awareness and offering an experience of your highest consciousness.

 

Sound Meditation employs techniques in such a way that it can generate profound healing experiences for listeners.

 

Sound as a channel to disconnect from discursive thought and delve into the transcendental state. To quiet the mind and bring the Being to a space of calm and rest.

half day surf trip

On Saturday we will take you for a whole morning of surf and fun to enjoy the tranquility, solitude and beautiful natural environment of this spot located 45 minutes from Puerto Escondido. 

The topography of the beach combined with the depth of the water and presence of large rocks makes this right handed wave a perfect spot for finishing our week.

Here you will have the opportunity to put in practice what you´ve learned while you enjoy a longer and relaxed surf session.

CLOSING cerimony 

We have the pleasure of concluding this journey together with an ancestral ritual called Temazcal, a pre-hispanic healing practices that integrates meditation, detoxifying, purification and healing. It symbolizes returning to our mother's womb where the fire element is predominant and a rebirthing through the water element. 

The group will be guided by an experienced yoga and meditation teacher that will explain the process of the temazcal and the type of herbs used as well as the 4 doors (or steps) in which this experience it´s divided. Each door represents a cardinal point, a season and an element in nature. We will set and intention for each door and by the end of the experience you will feel rejuvenated and transformed.

After this unique experience you will be able to enjoy a relaxing massage at the top roof of El Nopal Surf House with our favorite massage therapist.
