8-11 JULY | VALDOVIÑO, GALICIA, SPAIN
2020... what a year uh? It's definitely been a challenging year for all of us. However the difficulties, I'm sure we've all learnt a great deal from it, teachings that will help us to grow and evolve as humanity, and will accompany us for life.
But let's keep it light... after all, we've known heavyness already for the whole of 2021. So we bring this retreat as an opportunity to reset yourself after a tough period of stress and worry. This is a 4 day journey of empowering yoga, exciting surf and daily activities to reconnect with people and to appreciate what we might have taken for granted and have just started realizing how much we missed it during lockdown: the possibility to breathe outside in nature, to meet other people and to really connect outside of our screen & devices.
VALDOVIÑO. This beautiful municipality located in the northwest of the Galician coast stands out for its many beaches, being popular among surfers. You can find waves for all levels and beaches for all tastes like A Frouxeira, an endless sandbar of 3.5 km long, and the popular Pantín beach where the International Surfing Championship, Pantín Classic is held every September.
CASA LADEIRA is a villa located on the hill of Valdoviño just 150m from the so-called "Mirador do Paraño". Is one of the first Galician homes to obtain the "Passive House Certificate" an enviromentally friendly built house that saves up to 70% on heating and air conditioning thriving for maximum energy efficiency.
The location is ideal to walk everywhere you want and explore. The villa is surrounded by a 1500m2 garden, and another 6000m2 of wild eucalyptus forest, perfect for solo walks. It has a beautiful terrace with astonishing views overseeing the surf spot; perfect for our sunrise yoga sessions and to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea.
The beach is just 10 minutes away on foot while the lil town is a beautiful 30 minutes walk.
“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” - The Bhagavad Gita
Whether you're a beginner worried about snapping in two while folding forward or an experienced yogi who can handstand in one hand... we have a practice for you. Our classes are less about the poses and more about the way they make you feel, about creating space in body and mind, and about creating awareness. We will be stepping into our mats every day exploring different styles: from invigorating morning practices to relaxing and rejuvenating evening classes.
We aim to help you develop strength and flexibility, but more so, to develop the ability to become present and to tune into your body.
The yoga takes place in an outdoor space which is sunlight & easily aired. You'll be provided with your own yoga mat which you get to take home with you after the retreat. That way you'll always remember us & the experience :)
“Surfing is a way to be free.” - Lisa Andersen
The sport of kings is an analogy of life, at least to some extent: there’s ups and downs, calm and rage, beauty and horror, and very often you don’t know what’s heading your way.
Have you always dreamed of surfing but don't know where to start? Or maybe you already fell in love with it and just want a cool tribe to share your passion with. Whatever it is, we promise you lifetime experiences in the ocean!
You will be learning 1:1 with professional surf coaches that will guide you in the whole process, helping you to get a taste of the amazing sensation that is sliding down a wave.
2 practical lessons assisted by professional surf coaches
*Spoiler alert: the chances to become obsessed about surf are really high! We just wanted to let you know...
" To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art " - Francois de la Rochefoucauld
We believe we are much more than we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are.
We use fresh seasonal produce to prepare ourselves most of the goodies we provide. At Kukui, is all about eating healthy without compromising the pleasure. You can expect fresh colorful vegetarian delicious meals that will leave you feeling energized and satisfied: home made bread, our signature hummus, original salads, banana bread and baked goods in the morning...just name it!
Each breakfast and dinner are a big gathering around the table, and an opportunity to get to know better other retreat members, learn new recipes, and share quality time with others. Lunch consists of a licking-finger take away you can bring with you at the beach and eat after your surfing lesson or whenever you feel.
We also have fresh fruit, tea & coffee available 24h
