Yoga classes at Swell

Surfing and Yoga are a match made in heaven and it`s no accident that the two pair-up so well.
Pre-surf stretching has been a vital part of surfing since forever: You’ll never see a surfer enter the water without doing some stretching first. Using limbs in a way that is alien to most other daily activities or sports can take its toll, even on bodies whose owners consider themselves to be quite fit ordinarily.

Balance

The importance of preparation

Unless you are a seasoned swimmer, arms are not used to paddling as a rule, so shoulders can react unpleasantly to the demands of catching lots of waves.

Good Balance is an essential part of the surfing process. Yoga brings together many of the skills you will need to learn to surf well and perhaps most importantly, helps to stretch, relax, repair and tone aching limbs.

The power of yoga can transform lives

Molly, our Ashtanga Yoga instructor at Swell, believes that the power of yoga can transform lives. Her teaching style is warm and supportive and she encourages students to explore beyond their perceived limitations by emphasising proper alignment to maximise performance and prevent injury.

Our Classes

At Swell, we are very fortunate to have the lovely Molly O`Meara as our Yogi – Molly`s very friendly and relaxed way of teaching.

Yoga really concentrates on the individual...she`s wonderful at pin-pointing your sore spots and gently encouraging your body to “give” and relax. Molly began practising yoga in 1993 while she lived in Aspen Colorado.

Yoga first served as a complement to her active lifestyle, but soon became an integral part of her life. Now she is a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner. Yoga sessions are held at Swell 3 times per week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

You must pre-book in order to guarantee your Yoga class.
Yoga classes are priced at $22 per person / per class.

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique hotel than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelettes, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer tips between rides.”
