Your Dream Yoga Adventure Starts Here

Deepen your yoga practice at Rise Up

Rise Up retreats are located in some of Central America’s best yoga destinations, where you will practice in stunning outdoor yoga shala’s, rustic studios, and jungle fringed yoga decks.

Phil had been practicing yoga for a couple years prior to starting Rise Up after completing his yoga teacher training with Sivananda yoga school in Northern India. He found it to be the perfect compliment to surfing and was hooked. When Phil started Rise Up, he decided it had to be a part of the daily experience and started teaching to our guests. Today, we find teachers that focus in on the right yoga for our guests and are always looking for ways to offer more meditation and movement disciplines in our retreats.

Our Yoga Philosophy

We believe that yoga is for everyone, and that everyone can make it their own. It doesn’t mean that you have to take on the spiritual sides a practice to gain its benefits (although, if you’d like, yoga is a perfect way to practice mindfulness!)

Surfing is an activity that brings movement to our muscles that are often imbalanced—leading to issues like low back pain, tight hips and hamstrings, and locked shoulders.

Which is why we think the benefits of yoga are the perfect compliment to surf. Specific poses can counter those negative effects and help open the chest and shoulders, relax and open the hips, and increase flexibility. Even just practicing 15 minutes every other day can improve your surf, prevent injuries, and put your body back into balance.

Daily Yoga

On a Rise Up retreat, you will have daily yoga classes with certified and highly skilled yoga teachers who base each class around your specific needs each day. As the yoga schedule is dictated by the surf, you can expect routines that will benefit your body pre-surf, post surf, and on any days you need a rest.

Extra Classes
