Yoga and Surf Wellbeing Retreat

New for 2020 Livit Adventures presents this brand new retreat focused purely on Yoga, Surf and Wellbeing

Hosted at the Livit Camp with beautiful bell tent accommodation overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

We will start each day with a yoga session, preparing the body and mind, waking up and grasping the day ready to surf later.  All yoga will be on site in one of our larger bell tents (or outside if the English weather permits). We will surf both days at the local beach.

This trip is certain to bring a healthy level of wellbeing, relaxation and fun to your weekend and you will hopefully feel energised, rebooted and totally stoked by the time you leave! 

Yoga

This is a group of physical, mental and spiritual practises or disciplines which originated in ancient India. 

Yoga balances the mind and body and really set us up for a great day outdoors.

We practise in the main bell tent if the weather isn’t in our favour, however if the sun is out we will be outside feeling the grass beneath our toes. All equipment is provided.

Our yoga instructor, the wonderful Casey who we have worked with for 2 years now, is a qualified yoga teacher with an MSc in Human Nutrition, a BSc in Psychology and a qualification in life and NLP coaching for behaviour change. She is full of positivity and has a connection with the outdoors. Casey loves to surf and Kitesurf and can be seen shredding when the wind and waves allow. We absolutely LoVe working with this wonderful lady and we know you will just love her too!

Surfing 

The beautiful coast of North Devon and Cornwall is home to some of the best waves in the UK. Surfing really is part of the lifestyle!

We aim to surf at our local beach Westward Ho! a perfect sandy beach with gentle waves, ideal for beginners. Nearby is Bude in North Cornwall which is another amazing surf destination with waves for every level and ability. We are totally spoilt for choice, so no matter what the conditions are, our fully qualified coaches will select the best beach to ensure you have the best time in the water.

This is an intimate weekend of just 10 guests maximum- although the staff do join in the trip too! Everyone working here at Livit Adventures is a coach in one or more activity, the breakfast chef could well be your surf coach! Whether you are a solo adventurer, a couple, or in a group you will find our trips to be totally inclusive and super friendly.

As with all our adventure trips this is adults only.

Fun large tipi & bell tents for sleeping and relaxing

The Tipis & Bells

Our tipi & bell tents are great! We have 5 bedroom tents each with internal room dividers (pods), although each tent is big enough for 10 people, we like our space, so each will sleep 2-4 people.

Camping beds will be provided but please bring your own bedding and sleeping bags. Please note you may be sharing with someone you don’t know yet if you are flying solo or in an odd numbered group. We will keep groups together as best we can.

The Lounge: A large communal bell tent; this one has a log burner and is perfectly set up for getting to know each other, relaxing, and after day one…talking about how your day went!

Our prospector tent is the place where we serve the food and sit down for the meals.
