Breath and Surf Journey with Barbara Stamis

Northern Nicaragua

February 17th – 24th 2024

Join Rise Up Surf and Barbara Stamis for a one week Breath & Surf Journey from 17 – 24th February 2024.
The retreat will combine deep breath practices with surfing beautiful waves in northern Nicaragua-reset your nervous system, heal pain and stress, with the art of breathing and the rejuvenating energy of the ocean.

Breath is the medicine that has the power to heal disease, emotional stress and immunity disregulation. It has the power to shift your consciousness, release what is not needed and attune you with your highest self. What better place to connect to this medicine than the natural land and seascapes of Nicaragua?

Barbara is a somatic coach, breath guide and functional movement educator. Her knowledge is anchored in ancient wisdom alongside modern science-backed practices and her intention is to help you uncover patterns & emotions in your body and breath system that need to be released in order to live a life of fully embodied freedom.

Barbara lives in Topanga Canyon, California, above the Malibu coast where she surfs and works with those wanting to heal physical and emotional pain. Breath journey is one of the most effective tools for self healing, releasing trapped emotion and trauma in the body. Breath journey allows you to become your greatest healer and breathing in a supportive group in the Nicaraguan ocean air is one of the most powerful gifts we can give ourselves.

Retreat centered around nourishment of mind, body and soul amongst heart centered community. Several breath techniques are offered to help you shift specific patterns in your breath and body.
The powerful transformational breath journeys are designed to give you the medicine you most need in your life and to align you with divine source.

Surfing is offered with verdant views of palm trees on the black sand beaches of Northern Nicaragua. The beach directly in front of our location is a peeling left hand reef break that works on medium to large swells. Due to our isolated location, we surf the emptiest waves in Nicaragua and based on the changing tides and conditions, we will take you to the best breaks each day.

If you are a highly committed individual who wants to heal physical pain and emotional stress, this is the journey for you and we would love to welcome you to our slice of paradise in Nicaragua.
