SURF & YOGA

Practise yoga in our orange groves, surf the idyllic waves of Portugal’s south and west Algarve coasts, and relax in the harmonious environment of Tiny Whale Surf Lodge.

THE PERFECT COMBINATION

Fitness, flexibility and balance are key requirements for success and progression with surfing. Our highly experienced yoga instructor has developed morning and evening sessions with this in mind. Classes are sensitive to the key muscle groups used in surfing, offering a balance of energising dynamic sessions and restorative relaxing Yin sessions. Perfect for both men and women, this package is accessible to a range of levels and will develop your surfing and yoga practice no matter where you’re starting from.

MEET MIRI

Miri is Tiny Whale’s fully qualified in-house yoga instructor. As a certified Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®) she has over 7 years teaching experience, regularly attending continued teacher training workshops all over the world. She brings the most up to date knowledge and proven techniques to her classes, making use of both traditional and modern perspectives.

The disciplines of yoga and surfing go hand in hand. Both bring physical transformation and mental enhancement.

As a surfer, Miri has first hand experience of the physical benefits of adding yoga to your surfing routine, in building balance, flexibility, and strength. Mental benefits include increased focus and awareness of your mind, body and surroundings.

 

 

I have developed a unique blend of Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa flow and Yin yoga in my classes that perfectly complements a full day of surfing.

As with many sports, surfing uses the muscles of the body in a repetitive unbalanced way i. e. some muscles work much harder than others meaning imbalance and tension occur over time. A key focus in yoga is awareness of the body, recognising areas of tight muscles and working through poses to correct them. Groups of muscles are simultaneously lengthened and strengthened through both dynamic and static poses. This brings balance to the body rather than exacerbating existing areas of strength and weakness. Miri will teach you ideal pre-surf warm ups and post-surf stretches to manage tension in the body, keeping you supple, strong and ready for the next wave.

LOCATION

Nestled between the orange trees, our dedicated outdoor yoga space is perfectly located for peaceful sessions at our lodge in the serene countryside of the Algarve’s idyllic south coast. Away from the hustle and bustle yet still close to the nearest town, we’re perfectly located for quick access to the stunning beaches of the south and west coastlines, well known for their prime surfing spots.

THANK YOU MIRI & THE TEAM!

"A well thought out week, we made real progress with our surfing skills and Miri's excellent instruction left us rejuvenated, eager to continue our yoga practice at home!"
