Central America’s Premier Surf & Yoga Destination

You’d like to strengthen your yoga skills, refresh body and mind, eat healthy, go on epic adventures and connect with the Nicaraguan culture? Experience all that at Rise Up Surf. Our two yoga studios are surrounded by the ocean. While you are in class, waves are crashing and birds are calling from the tree.

Here you can truly disconnect from the pressures of everyday life as we are happily Wi-Fi free. Dedicate your vacation to yoga. You are a teacher or a leader who is specialized in yoga, meditation, fitness or wellness? We also create second-to-none, personally tailored retreats which include exclusive use of our facilities.

Yoga leads to a body that is easeful, a mind that is peaceful, which results in a life that is useful.
