What better way is there to prepare your body for the demands of surfing than practising the spiritual art of yoga? These exercises will suitably prepare you for the challenges your muscles will face while surfing while preparing your mind for the unpredictability of choppy waters. Our location near the beach on the Canary Islands is an ideal retreat to practise yoga as it is within a protected nature reserve in a quiet location. Other worldwide locations to practise include:
· Rishikesh, India
· Assisi, Italy
· Mount Shasta, California
· Cassadaga, Florida
· Lily Daly, New York
Many of these locations are within holy cities or retreats connected to a spiritual history that will help you get into the perfect frame of mind for the ancient art of yoga. Rishikesh has many spiritual retreats, also known as ashrams, some luxurious and others more basic designed for different spiritual and yoga needs. The meditation sessions in Italy’s Assisi retreat are held on sacred grounds and you can choose to combine this with pilgrimage walks and ritual movement sessions. Breathtaking views can be found on Mount Shasta, an active volcano with sacred connections. Plenty of centers for practising yoga can be found as well as healing and spiritual retreats.
So why visit another location to practise yoga? The best spiritual vacation retreats have:
· A history connected to its current use

· Natural habitats
In particular, the ideal location will be rich in tradition and culture, creating a harmonious environment for travelers. Surfing will become a different experience after you have found your inner peace.
