YOGA AND SURF


Surfing and Yoga naturally go hand in hand as complementary physical, spiritual and philosophical practices that help to promote transformation, awareness, strength and serenity.

 

YOGA
 

The Serene Retreat Package include two daily yoga sessions, offered each morning or afternoon.

We welcome all levels of fitness and yoga experience, beginners as well as advanced yogis.
Our highly experience yoga teachers tailor the yoga programs to your personal needs by providing modifications and adjustments to suit everyone’s ability.
Whether you are a beginner or have been practicing for years, our yoga teachers will help you find a new level of inner balance, physical strength and flexibility in each class.

Our knowledgeable and versatile yoga teachers offer a wide range of yoga styles and traditions, inviting and encouraging you to explore, play and grow. Yoga styles incorporated into the daily classes include; a wide variety of Vinyasa Flows; from slow, deep and soothing to vigorous, energizing and playful flows, FlyHigh Yoga, AcroYoga, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Yoga for Surfers, Yin, and Restorative Yoga.

Specific areas can be worked upon request and one on one private session can also be requested.

 

(ACRO) YOGA WORKSHOP
 

The Retreat includes one themed yoga workshop. AcroYoga being one of our favorite themes.
Great for all levels! AcroYoga is a physical practice combining the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. AcroYoga builds strength and flexibility but most importantly trust and teamwork.

And it is also just a lot of fun and play!

 

SURF
 

With water temperatures averaging 28C/84F and consistent surf all year round, Bali is truly a surfer’s paradise. And with Canggu as our home base, we have breaks and waves suitable for all levels, swells and tides, almost all year round. And when the conditions are not right at our home breaks, we search along the magnificent Bali coast. With more than 60 waves less than an hour away we always find the best wave for your level.

Your first surf session is on us, included in the standard Serene Retreat package.  If you wanna surf more, or wanna go explore different surf breaks. We offer very affordable, great value for money add-on surf packages (please inquire).

We offer the highest level of professional instruction and surf guiding with our preferred local surf partner;
Suksma Surf Bali https://www.facebook.com/suksmasurf/


Our surfing program allows you to progress at your own pace throughout the week. You will always feel supported and safe learning at your correct level - whether you have never surfed before or are already an experienced surfer. You will receive personal attention at all times, with individual feedback provided throughout each session. We are always aware of up-to-the-minute conditions—swell, wind and tide, and we take you and your level of skill to the right spot at the right time - from easy beach breaks for beginners up to reef breaks for more experienced surfers.

The Serene Yoga & Surf Retreat offer the perfect opportunity to learn how to surf in a safe and supportive environment, or alternatively explore the amazing variety of surf breaks Bali has to offer.

Bente first came in touch with Yoga in the late 1990"s. Bente has always been a mover, practicing gymnastics, dance. swimming and various other sports from a very young age and as such her yoga journey began purely as a venture into the physical practice and philosophy.

Combined with a university degree and professional work experience in psychology, international business. marketing and management Bente represents both the Yin and the Yang of our modem world. And in her yoga practice and her teachings on and off the mat, she strives to bridge the eastern and western Philosophy. knowledge and approaches through tradition and creativity.

Since completing her training Bente has been teaching regular weekly studio classes, privates, retreats and workshops in Europe (primarily the Netherlands) and South East Asia (Thailand. Cambodia) and Bali, Indonesia where she is currently based. Through the years Bente has developed a strong personal practice and teaching style, continuously deepened and inspired by an endless number of auspicious yoga teachers, workshops, constant curiosity. lots of research...and lots and lots of playing around on the mat : )

Bente embraces a creative, full-spectrum approach to embodying the diversity of Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga, in the perfect blend of deep, grounding and soothing Yin & Restorative practices to vigorous, energizing. challenging and playful Vinyasa flows. Bente invites you into a moving flow. cultivating a strong. radiant, connected and flexible body and mind, with a combination of Hatha/Vinyasa Flow, Pranayama, fresh beats. deep meditative postures....and always lots of heart.
Bente is furthermore a very keen surfer. with a great love for the ocean. Often referring to the Ocean as her favourite yoga mat.

Bente strives to inspire her students to always move with ease. whether the movement is challenging or simple. Resting the focus calmly on the breath. moving safely, easily and efficiently. leaving space for the mind to get calm, centered, and focused. Creating space and courage to grow and transform, and to move past the ‘comfort zone" on and off the mat!

Maria Frisch
Peaceful Warrior - Lead Teacher


Maria has been practicing Yoga for the last 7+ years. From a young age, she was always passionate and interested in a variety of sports. lt was in 2013. during her travels in Southeast Asia when she fell in love with yoga. During that time. she discovered yoga had much more to offer than she realized. This helped find the balance in life in which she was seeking. From here she hasn’t stop learning all aspects of yoga. She still considers herself ‘a student’. always learning and getting inspired by others.

Maria completed her Vinyasa - Yoga Teacher Training (registered with Yoga Alliance) at Power of Now Oasis, in Bali. Since then she has completed trainings and workshop in Yin Yoga, Restorative, FlyHigh Yoga and Acroyoga. Her journey didn’t stop there, as she took a 100hr training in “Thai Yoga Massage" at Sunshine Massage School in Chiang Mai. Thailand.

One of her main goals is to share the benefits of yoga and bring more mindfulness and awareness into peoples lives, to live and enjoy the moment; and to connect with themselves. Yoga is not a competition.
As a teacher. Maria always has a big smile on her face along with her soothing voice, to create a space where everyone feel welcome. Focused. but not restricted to Vinyasa and Hatha Flow, she loves to create a dynamic and challenging practice. Maria also teaches slow and deep Yin and Restorative Yoga. including Pranayama breathing exercises. to center and balance her students during practice. helping them reach a meditative state of mind.
She loves the Yin and Yang aspect of yoga, the needed balance of life.
She also loves teaching FlyHigh and Acroyoga. Enjoying the playfulness and teamwork experience of its practice. Who knew that trust and fear facing exercises could be that fun?

Travelling changed Maria’s life and opened many doors. It’s that one thing she just loves. Planning the next trip in this big-small world, exploring new places and learning from different cultures. Just loving every aspect of it, almost as much as she loves chocolate. : )
