Yoga and Surfing – More than a Mat and a Board

Learning to surf is all about the ocean and friendships
Surfing and Yoga are about union.

Have you ever wondered about the connection between Yoga and Surfing? The similarities between the two are amazing and here at Surf Bikini Nosara we are doing our best to give girls of all ages exposure to the life changing aspects of these spiritual practices.

The word “Yoga” is a Sanskrit word that means “union” and is widely interpreted as “union with the divine”. Surfing is the act of riding a wave and much of this sport has to do with being in “union” with oneself and the ocean. Either way, the importance of “union” helps with balance and concentration – two key factors in both practices and two key factors in living a healthy life.

This is just one small example of the crossover between Yoga and Surfing and a taste of what we practice every day here in Costa Rica.
