Surf & Yoga Retreat in Siargao with Kat Daily Schedule

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR DAYS?   

After setting your intention for the day through meditation, your morning will start with a strong ninety minute practice to energize your day. This gives you the opportunity to deepen and develop your practice. Your afternoons will vary between different activities, surfing, workshops, and free spare time to explore Siargao in whichever way your heart desires. In the evening expect a more grounding flow and restorative practice to bring the body back into balance, followed by a mindful journaling session to set the intention for the evening dinner gathering under the starry nights.
