Yoga, Surf & SUP in Rincon, Puerto Rico

January 22-26, 2015

Yoga, Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and Surf Retreat with Jessica Bellofatto and Gina Bradley in Rincon, Puerto Rico

Picture this: Daily yoga on the deck of our private home with incredible ocean views, daily stand up paddleboarding (SUP) lessons and tours emphasizing technique to increase speed and efficiency, SUP YOGA (yoga on the paddleboard) taught by Jessica Bellofatto, a pioneer in the field, daily runs or fitness walks, delicious, organic, locally sourced meals prepared by an amazing local chef, massages, relaxation, and more. Jessica and Gina Bradley of Paddle Diva have been co-teaching this retreat for the last six years, and their combined years of experience and expertise in their respective fields are unparalleled. This retreat is limited to 15 participants, ensuring a lot of personal attention for both deepening your yoga practice, and becoming a stronger paddleboarder—or learning for the first time! Optional surf lessons, horseback riding, snorkeling, waterfall tours and more!

Testimonial:
"... here I am in Rincon, Puerto Rico, sharing Gina’s beautiful blue beach house “Casa Azul” with 3 other athletic energetic women on the retreat, as well as Gina and Jess. Everyone is incredibly warm, nurturing, and passionate for keeping fit and being strong, so it’s inevitable that we formed an instant bond and hit it off great from the start! The house sits on a hill with panoramic view of the bright blue ocean which is an incredible backdrop for our dinners on the porch and both our morning and afternoon yoga practices where we can revel in the sunrise as we push back into our first downward dog of the day, and sunsets as we move into our last warrior of the day..."

Other activities that we can pre-arrange prior to the trip include hikes in a local rainforest, mountain bike tours, snorkeling trips, SCUBA diving, sailing, horseback riding on beaches and trails, parasailing, fishing charters and you can also learn to surf or hone your surfing skills!

Paddle Diva'So Many Ways to Get Away'
By Emily J. Weitz
There’s a secret to living on the East End year-round: knowing when to get away. It might just be for a few days, or it might be for a few months, but when the days get short and the company gets sparse, most everybody needs a little escape. That’s why yoga and wellness practitioners based in the area have developed many opportunities to get a hit of something entirely different, whether it’s a sun-drenched beach or bustling metropolis. And even though the end of February is in sight, March and April can prove long and unforgiving. There’s still time to shift your perspective.
