Women's Surf Camps. A Sure Ride To Bliss

Jan 30, 2008
Ever thought about stepping away from the day to day? Do your body and mind need rejuvenating? Why not join the growing trend of women who are packing their bikinis into their luggage and heading to a women's surf camp?

We can't all follow the trend of performing a permanent sea change. Moving houses and careers to be located on the seaside is an impossibility for many of us. However, we can all benefit from a week long surf and yoga retreat.

Why not tone your muscles and center your mind at a women's surf camp on the island of Maui? "What is a women's surf camp?" I hear you thinking. Read on to find out why women the world over are abandoning their aprons and bosses for a week of "me time".

What is a women's surf camp? A women's surf camp is a vacation designed for women to concentrate on themselves. Surfing lessons, yoga sessions, massages and workshops on wellness are just some of the highlights. The objective of these surf and yoga retreats is to allow women to empower themselves through the medium of surfing the waves at Maui.

Delicious chef prepared meals are provided, truly giving some women more freedom from their daily lives than they have had in years.

Wellness, yoga and surfing. The combination of the yoga and the surfing ensures that all those muscle groups are being utilized in the correct manner. Instead of returning home stiff and sore from using long forgotten muscles, you will be looking and feeling toned and terrific. The yoga sessions are designed to complement the surfing classes, warming up those muscles nicely before hitting the water.

Massages after the surfing lessons not only give a sense of pampered well being, but allow the body to recover from the exercise.

Refresh your mind. Regenerate your body. Yoga has been used for thousands of years as a form of clearing the mind. Feel the stresses of daily life start to lift as the tranquil setting and the yoga combine to give a sense of well being. Once your body and mind have been recharged there will be no stopping you.

Many women find that learning the art of surfing gives them a sense of fulfillment which carries over into many other aspects of their lives. Feeling restored and rejuvenated, obstacles that seemed insurmountable become smaller. Overcoming personal challenges need not be such a hurdle once you have been taught how to do so.

Women Only. Most women find that being involved in a women's surf camp allows them to make many new friends. The emphasis for 7 days is on oneself. No keeping partners, bosses or children happy. Simply concentrating on your own body and mind for one week without any distractions at all. Being surrounded by other females enables the camp members to simplify their daily routines.

Finding good health and happiness are the main objectives at a women's surf camp. This is easily achieved with the nutritious and delicious meals supplying your body's fuel whilst the mind and muscles are catered for with the surfing and yoga. Helpful life skills are taught in the well-being programs.

The pressures and/or drudgery of the real world can easily fade away. The tranquility of a tropical setting is ideal for cleansing the mind. The wellness program teaches women how to look after themselves better. Learn how to give yourself a better billing in life. The body and the mind need an occasional overhaul to work to their optimal potential. By returning to the simpler things in life, many burdens will be relegated to a less significant role.

Feel the self esteem rising while the blood pressure is dropping. For many women, attempting something new in the form of surfing, or honing up on their surfing skills, can be just what the doctor ordered. Splashing abut in the crystal clear waters will leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated all at the same time.

Trade the apron, cell phone and people mover for a bikini, yoga mat, and surf board. Do yourself a favor and experience a women's surf camp. Make new friends. Learn new life skills. The number one priority for a week? Yourself. Chores or bliss? The decision is yours.
