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 surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer tips between rides.”

    About Swell Surf Camp:

    After living in the Dominican Republic for 8 years and loving the great outdoor watersport lifestyle, Jeroen (from the Netherlands) and Clare (for the UK) decided it was time to share their knowledge of the Dominican Republic all that this stunning country has to offer with visitors from around the world.

    Clare and Jeroen were already familiar with surf camps in many different countries and having had to stay in some very ordinary surf hotel accommodation in their quest for great surfing waves, they knew that there was something missing in the surf camp market; a place which was still social, but offering better quality accommodation, great food, nicer beds, cleaner rooms: A stylish, luxury surf camp. They set about designing the kind of place they would want to stay in themselves.

    So they hired a renowned Swiss architect for one purpose: to come up with the world’s first purpose-built, luxury surf camp & resort.

    Since opening in winter 2009/2010 Swell surf instructors have taught 1000’s of people how to surf in a safe, fun and structured manner. Since opening, Swell has won multiple awards and has 100’s of excellent reviews from happy guests. Swell continues to be one of the top destinations for couples, groups and solo travellers to go to as the #1 luxury surf camp holiday.

    It’s not just surfing on offer at Swell; You can learn to kitesurf, take yoga classes, go horse riding on the beach or in the mountains and enjoy some truly spectacular outdoor adventure trips like canyoning for example.

    Swell offers package surf holidays that take all the hassle out of the planning, with airport transfers, transport to the beach and much more, so all Swell guests can enjoy a stress free holiday right from the start. You just have to book your flights, and they will take care of the rest!

    With great food being such an important part of anyone’s surf vacation, Swell delivers there too; with superb home cooked food at the camp and on the evenings when guests go out to dinner, a large choice of restaurants offering a comprehensive choice of dining are all within a few minutes walk.

  • “The Dominican Republic has it all!”

    We hope you will join us on a Caribbean Surf Holiday in the Domican Republic.
