1-7 MAY | AYAMPE, ECUADOR
JUNGLE, BIKINI VIBES AND TROPICAL RELAX
Finally it has arrived, the retreat that the tribe was asking for. The adventure of all the adventures. A retreat at the other side of the planet, on the new continent, a retreat to explore, discover and disconnect under the tropical heat.
Flowing Tropic is a Surf & Yoga Retreat of movement, disconnection and adventures. But at the same time it is a chance to get to know new cultures and landscapes to learn from, escaping from our comfort zone, meeting new people and sharing magic moments with the tribe in the unknown Ecuador, a small natural paradise that combines jungle and ocean.
AYAMPE. A small hidden corner in the Manabí province. A place where tranquility and nature are the priority. Where the rural streets, the green forests and the tropical rythim forces us to slow down. Ayampe is the most consistent surf spot in the country with waves all year round and different peaks for every level. That's why we have fell in love with this place. Also for its warm water, finally it is time to surf in bikini. Hippie vibes and pure air is all you will find in this small village located by the Natural Park of Machalilla, just 200km away from the Guayaquil airport.
VILLA SANTA CLARITA. This beautiful villa is located in Ayampe Beach located in the exotic nature of Ecuador. With 3 exclusive suites with private bathroom and a wide terrace for our yoga practices it's a tropical dream made true.
The villa has a private pool and a chill out area with hammacks perfect for relaxing after an intense surf session. Also, over the house there is a rooftop with garden views.
The living room is very comfy and wide with wooden decoration, creating an ideal space for our night talks with the tribe.
The location is perfect, from Santa Clarita you can walk to the beach which is only a few steps away, but also you can walk to the town where you can find local restaurants and small shops.
Also the villa has a 24 hours surveillance service.
“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.
5 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...
“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.
1 daily morning yoga practice by a certified yoga instructor
1 daily Meditation, sunset slow yoga, yoga nidra, journaling or other workshops
