Surfing Yogis and Yoginis


Surfers can benefit greatly by welcoming a yoga practice into their daily life style.

A yoga practice can minimize the risk of injury and improve recovery after a surf session. Yoga before surfing warms up major muscle groups for an energized surf session and yoga brings awareness to the present moment and focus needed to attain surfing goals in the water.

Yoga also creates a calm energy which helps with overcoming fear and creates a very fast physical response that is needed when ridding big waves.

Yoga gives surfers strength, flexibility, balance and improves breathing. Giving the power needed to have the maximum fun in the water and prevent that nagging back pain very common in surfers.

Both surfing and yoga can be done in a group or in solitude and silence. Both attract nature lovers; and keep their devotees looking and feeling unusually young, strong and vibrant.

Surfing provides a blissful and mystical experience that yogis have been talking about for thousands of years.

In yoga, we move the unseen waves of life force energy through out our bodies. In surfing, we feel the external wave energy that we tap into when doing yoga.

In surfing, you learn that even the less than perfect waves are composed of the same substance, the same salt water, as the perfect waves.

Surfing , like yoga, is a challenge worth meeting day after day after day no matter what the conditions are.

Here at Baja Wellness we provide you with private group or single yoga classes to meet your individual needs. Call us today and we will be happy to schedule a yoga session for you, on the beach before or after surfing or in the comfort of your own home or villa.


Yoga with Robin Clements from Baja Wellness

As I awake to the fresh morning sunrise, ocean breeze, and the birds singing here in Los Cabos.
I gather a few mangos that had just dropped from the mango tree and looking forward to a morning yoga class with Robin Clements from Baja Wellness.
On my way to yoga I am thinking about what I need from a yoga class physically and spiritually.
To my surprise I am pleased to find that Robin intuitively meeting these needs from beginning to end as he guides his class with such grace.
I feel a soothing warmth flowing through my body-mind as Robin guides us through breath and yoga postures that feel “just right”.
A flow that is strengthening and yet releasing muscle tension and pain. Bringing flexibility, balance and vitality to my entire being.
Knowing that Robin Clements is a Professional Massage Therapist and skilled Body Worker I trust that his asanas will not cause injury or pain. Hearing Robin take precaution about how we utilize the yoga postures I am able to open up with peace of mind.
Robin guides us into relaxation at the end of the class using a serene voice and breath techniques that brings a deep sense of calming within my meditation experience.
Thank you Robin for such a beautiful yoga class.
