My Surf Yoga Retreat brings surfers and yogis together to surf the best waves in the world and get back into shape, the yoga way.

We all live surf, eat surf, dream surf and when it comes to thinking about our next vacations, we think surf. Indonesia, Costa Rica, Panama, Hawaii, the list goes on and on.

For former pro snowboarder Gary Zebrowski it is the same, and after putting an end to his snowboarding career after the 2010 Winter Olympics, he decided it was time to go back to its Tahitian roots: the Ocean.

With his wife, former pro snowboarder Caroline Beliard-Zebrowski, now living the surf and yoga life, they recently started a new venture and launched My Surf Yoga Retreat, a new travel concept for those into surf, yoga and change. “By organizing these retreats we wanted to share our roots, culture and passions with others”, says Caroline. “The boat trip in Tahiti is the best example of what we want to share with people: immersing them into the Tahitian culture, having them surf spots nobody could surf otherwise, going deep-sea fishing, doing yoga on deserted islands, and yes, forgetting about their cell phone and Facebook.”

Laguna Beach, CA, Hossegor, France and a boating trip in Tahiti are some of the upcoming 2012 getaways they organize. For more info on Gary and Caroline’s new venture, please visit www.mysurfyogaretreat.com/en
