The perfect communion for an integral development
Both yoga and surfing are disciplines that work on self-improvement and self-knowledge. From the body, it is possible to reach the essence of the being, that which goes beyond oneself and which gives a sensation of indescribable happiness. In addition, yoga allows the body to have greater agility and flexibility, making it an excellent complement to surfing.
Yoga represents a whole lifestyle and allows us to improve posture and performance in surfing. At Calima Surf School we offer you the opportunity to connect yoga with surfing, in an unparalleled natural environment: Famara beach, on the island of Lanzarote.

Kundalini yoga involves coordination between movement and breathing, combines static and dynamic asanas and helps to achieve absolute control of the breath during the exercise. Thus, it is possible to strengthen the nervous system and make the body more flexible.
The yoga classes at our school have been designed to improve some specific aspects of surfing, such as strengthening shoulders, arms and legs, making hips more flexible, training balance and improving concentration.
The sessions start with specific positions to warm up the body, especially the joints and the areas of greatest tension. After the initial mantra and a conscious breathing to tune in to the inner self, the practice alternates the dynamic asanas of Ashtanga yoga with the exercises to improve body alignment and chest opening as a result of Iyengar Yoga.
At the end, we perform the Savasana, the most important yoga posture that will allow us to achieve an integrated relaxation of the body and mind.
Concentration, flexibility, balance and physical resistance are just some of the benefits you will find in yoga that will greatly improve your surfing technique.
