Build Core, Confidence & Connection in
Beautiful Barbados

May 9–16, 2020

Surfing is the best way to strengthen your core, develop self-confidence and feel connected to yourself and everything around you. Within your core lies your Third Chakra, aka your Power Chakra: the house of your self-confidence, self-esteem, your drive. When we feel fully connected to the energy center of our core, nothing can get in our way!!

Join me for a weeklong yoga and surf retreat on the magical island of Barbados for daily yoga classes to help you find core stability, daily surf lessons to challenge and channel your power, and special meditations, practices and workshops that will leave you feeling stronger, more confident and connected than ever before.

Why a yoga and surf retreat? Surfing requires you to be strong, face your fears, and be in communication with your intuition so that you can be in tune with the water. Yoga allows us to do all these things on the mat; surfing forces us to be at one with ourselves quite literally within the elements. It is my most favorite thing in the world, the thing that saved me from myself and taught me how to look all my fears and self-doubts in face—and proceed anyway. There is no question that I would not be where I am today in my life—the most successful I have ever been—had I not found surfing. And I cannot wait to share my most favorite thing with you to help you transform yourself into the courageous, confident, unstoppable magical being that you are.
