During your stay in the drivethru Surf Camp we can organize tours for you to various places of interest. In addition, you can take yoga classes, relax with a massage and naturally keep fit with or without an extra service.
Our yoga classes are dynamic and if necessary powerful and challenging, but always with calm and soft elements, breathing exercises or meditation. Besides the healthy physical exercises (asanas), a lot of emphasis is on perceiving and respecting your personal limits. We go by the Yoga philosophy: Thus, it is important to listen to your own needs, harmonizing body and mind with the practice of Yoga and continue with renewed energy. Whether yoga is simply Indian gymnastics for you or a journey to yourself, you decide entirely for yourself. Please discuss any personal physical limitations you might have before the first lesson with your yoga teacher. A 60-minute yoga class with a professional yoga teacher costs 10, – Euro.
