  • Bamboo Yoga School 74-78 Bangalow Road Byron Bay, NSW, 2481 Australia (map)

2.5hr workshop - $30 pp (click here to purchase)

Do you wish to improve your surfing ability and continue to surf like you did when you were younger? Do you have injuries that effect or limit your surfing ability? Are you spending less time in the water as you get older? If you answer yes to any of these questions then this workshop is for you!

The emphasis will be on targeted remedial stretching for body areas that commonly get tight from lots of surfing and paddling. You will learn how to use your breath to your advantage when surfing and take home a great all-round stretching routine for warming up and maintenance work. We will also look at the mechanics of the spine and paddling which will improve your knowledge and paddling technique and keep you in the water longer.

This practical and hands-on workshop brings together the eastern wisdom and practices of yoga with western exercise science knowledge. No prior yoga experience required, all you need is an open mind and the desire to discover more about yourself.
