Rise Up + Richie Norton

Costa Rica

April 23rd → April 30th

Adapt and Elevate! A surf, breath work, movement and mobility Retreat With Richie Norton.

Spend a week alongside Richie Norton and the Rise Up Surf Familia in Costa Rica where every day Richie will be guiding us through a series of movement and breath work classes elevating our mind, body and soul. Richie is an ex-professional athlete turned coach with many talents and skills under his belt such as being an XPT master trainer.

“Our retreat with Rise Up Surf is centered around taking each of our guests on a journey of discovery and connection. Where together we can harness the power of nature’s magic, take in the power of the ocean and the bliss of the wild outdoors using surf, yoga, functional movement, exposure to the cold, heat and breathwork to influence the mind, enhance your performance, control stress and emotional states…”

Richie Norton

Richie Norton is a former rugby player turned Yogi adrenaline chaser. After starting his career on the rugby pitch, Richie suffered a series of injuries that saw him make the life-changing transition from athlete to coach. This shift lead Richie on his own path of self-discovery and while travelling the world, he found his now life-long passion for yoga and performance coaching.

Over the past ten years, Richie has worked all over the globe and his client roster reads like an A-List party guestlist. Whether it’s training Orlando Bloom to get movie-ready or PT sessions with the likes of Joe Wicks, Yoga with Fearne Cotton and alpine altitude training with British motorcycle racing champ, Chaz Davies, Richie gets results. Richie is an XPT Life Master Coach and his unique training methods experiment with a mix of meditation practices, callisthenics, capoeira and his beloved yoga.

Recently, Richie has worked with brands such as Fiit, Jeep, New Balance, RedBull, Speedo, Triumph, The NorthFace and Axa PPP Healthcare. Richie’s ‘Vibe Tribe’ online community has seen him offer training advice, coaching and mental health life hacks and tips to a loyal family of members during the 2020 lockdown. Now residing in rural Wales, Richie takes every opportunity he can to reconnect himself and his clients with the power of nature and the great outdoors.

The retreat vibes

We are hosting this retreat at a beautiful Eco-lodge on the edge of the rainforest in the far south of Costa Rica where the jungle literally touches the sea. The wildlife is without a doubt one of the highlights of this region and to boot there are several perfect point breaks right out front.

Every day Richie will be leading us through a unique guided practise created especially for this retreat and which combines perfectly with our daily surf routine.

As with all our retreats, we intertwine surf and activities with incredible and healthy food, yoga and good times with great people.
