Deepen your yoga practice and learn to surf in Nosara, Costa Rica. Nexus Institute Yoga & Wellness is a family-style sober living environment in one of the top surf destinations in the world. 

Join us for an all-levels Sober Surf and Yoga Retreat. Learn to surf or improve your surfing in an alcohol and drug-free environment. Everything is optional. Horace will lead you through daily yoga, meditation and Recovery Meetings.  We surf each morning. You and one other participant will share a surf coach dedicated to your interest and ability level. Each surf session is photographed and videoed. Every afternoon we review video footage of that days surf session in a relaxed classroom environment. You will receive a photograph and video package to take home. Experience one of the best surf beaches in Costa Rica, deepen your yoga practice, take time for yourself, and make friends for life.

One Week at Nexus Institute

In addition to Yoga Teacher Training and continuing education programs, we reserve a few weeks every year for 'reset' and recovery. R&R retreats focus on recovery with all-levels surf coaching and contemplative techniques of yoga, breath-work, and meditation. With a balance of active and contemplative experiences, R&R retreat weeks offer a relaxed schedule with plenty of free time to explore our international local culture, cuisine, miles of sandy beaches, and one of the best surf breaks in the world. Throughout the week, we provide a safe, sacred and personally supportive environment. We look forward to welcoming you to a week of reset and recovery at Nexus Institute for Yoga & Wellness in Nosara, Costa Rica.
