Flow Island Surf & Yoga Retreat Siargao

Flow Summer 2014 adventures continue to Siargao Island for the Flow Island Surf & Yoga Retreat! We spent 4 days in this gorgeous island and each day was a different adventure!

We stayed in Siargao Inn's, peaceful tropical bungalow, surrounded by lots of plants and greenery.

First in the agenda was surfing lessons with Siargao Island Surf School at a surf spot called Jacking Horse. The lessons were led by head instructor, Carlito Nogalo, one of the country's best surfers. Our Timex visors came in handy as it was scorching hot that day!

Super stoked Kaye with our surf coach Carlito!

Both participants were still stoked from their first surf session that the next day we decided to go surf again at different spot this time at Daku Island. The waves were breaking in the middle of the ocean and it could only be reached by a pump boat! We also had the waves all to ourselves that day, how awesome is that!

After a fun-filled 2 hour surf session, we had a picnic lunch in Daku Island. Fresh coconut water, grilled seafood, grilled veggies and fruits were prepared for us!

Spent the afternoon island hopping to Naked Island and Guyam Island.

Day 3 was spent at the Magpupungko Tidal Pools! Gorgeous rock pools with clear jade waters appear during low tide. They're nature's infinity pools and we just lingered in it's pure waters all afternoon.

A Flow retreat is not complete without a green smoothie and raw food workshop! We always source our veggies and fruits from the local market, our superfoods were provided by The Healthy Grocery!

Moringana malunggay capsules and teas are always a Flow staple as well! 

After all the surfing, swimming and activities, a yoga session was just what we needed on our last day. Lili, a yoga teacher from Manila who is now based in Siargao led a relaxing morning yoga class in Siargao Inn's peaceful garden.

Thanks heaps to our participants Kaye, Cha and Caroline, our yoga instructor Lili, our hosts Rico and Nildie of Siargao Inn, for making this retreat in paradise a very memorable one.
