Yoga & Surf + Satsang with David Newman
When me and my partner Sofia moved 6 years ago to this Area of Panama, we completely fell in love with Venao. There was something about its simplicity that the City never gave us & we really wanted to learn. Not much time passed so that we learned about the Love of Home Cooking, Home reading, long walks on the beach and splurging some days on a few beers out in the local bar. We engaged in new activities of course such as learning how to Surf… The fun part of all is that We still don´t know how to Surf, and maybe never will, but also accepting that is part of the big lesson Surf has on us. There is a lot of surrendering to do with Nature and the Waves of the Ocean are to me a mirror of our own life. I never forget Pema Chodron saying that life will always come and hit us like a big wave, but the magic started right there when you can watch the sky from above, all full of sand up to your ears and eyes, and still be able to come back up… and surely have a great laugh. There is so much related between Surf and Yoga, and they both add so much into each other. Surf gave me back that playfulness that we sometimes as Yogis. Yoga gives to the flowy Surf some balance and both together make great lovers. This retreat is not about becoming a professional Surfer or a Professional Yogis, is not about riding the biggest wave or achieving a strenuous head stand, but it is about your flow through life and also a lot about how much fun you are having in it. I always try to remind myself to have some time and a space to dedicate to ME and to my inner child. Lets be wild and playful and come to play with us, get nurtured and smile.
