Surf and Yoga Retreat
Sopela, Basque Country
Ready to escape from the ordinary and live 6 days of disconnection, while staying active?
Dates and sign up for 2024 will be shared in autumn 2023
Disconnect to reconnect. If you are looking for a time out from the daily routine, meet new people and have active days enjoying the ocean and movement, this is your retreat!
Sopela is a small coastal town located in the Basque Country, 20km from Bilbao (North of Spain). It offers easy accessibility to the Atlantic ocean and its surrounding wild nature. Best airport connection is Bilbao Airport.
We will stay at Moana Eco Surf house, a young and modern hostel located 10mins away from the beach. Here we will practice yoga, enjoy their spa and have time off to recharge energies. Surf classes are organised through Moana with La Salbaje Surf Eskola. Classes are 2 hours and the school provides wetsuit and a surf board according to your level. Zohar will be teaching all yoga and flexibility classes. Classes are open level, including beginners, since Zohar will adjust the flow and give options according to the level of each participant. The goal of the practice will be to reset the body and mind, while boosting one’s own confidence to achieve new goals in the physical and mental practice.
Flexibility classes are divided in two: Legs & hips; and Upper body. There will also be an inversion workshop and additional surprise classes!

"I did the surf and yoga retreat near Bilbao. I spent an amazing time!! The yoga session were really nice and accessible to everybody. Zohar is adapting exercises according to your level.
It was well-organized and we had enough free time for ourselves to spend time with the other participants or if you want to spend time for yourself ! The surf sessions were super cool and the teacher was really funny and nice.
Thank you again for this nice retreat Zohar, looking forward to go to another lovely retreat ! "

"Wanderlust Retreats are perfect for adventure-loving yogis look to connect with a likeminded community. I participated in the Mediterranean Yoga Retreat in Cyprus (March 2022) and I cherish every moment of our retreat experience. I showed up without knowing anyone in the group (we were 6), and left feeling like we had all been lifelong friends.
We practiced yoga together daily, went snorkeling, hiking, dancing, and explored Cyprus with open minds and hearts. An experience like this is only possible with a strong organizer at the helm, and Zohar is exactly that.
Zohar pushes you out of your comfort zone and makes you feel at home at the same time. I am so grateful to her for bringing this unique group of people together around our shared love for yoga and adventure. 100% recommended!!!"

Maria, Sopela Retreat
"I did a yoga and surf retreat with Zohar in Sopela this summer and I'm honestly not over it yet! It was so beautifully organised; she managed to fill up the week with so many fun activities but yet everything felt so smooth and chilled! We did lots of yoga of course, different types of classes and also some flexibility ones.
She was always checking on us and how we felt on the day in order to make the class more or less powerful. I really appreciated her ability to adapt to our mood and capabilities in the moment while sticking to the plan.
We also did surfing classes which were soooo much fun and we learnt so much! And we also had time for hiking, sightseeing and celebrations or eating out!
It was honestly a wonderful experience and I cannot wait to do more retreats with her. I love the way she was able to bring so many different people together and make us feel like a big family sharing great energy :) Thank you Zohar!

"There aren’t enough words in all the languages of the world to describe the experience I had with Wanderlust Retreats. If you were waiting for a sign, I’m telling you THIS IS IT.
From beginning to end, the memories I made with so many like-minded and kind-hearted souls from all over continue to enlighten me in my days wherever I am and whatever I’m up to next. Zohar did an amazing job coordinating the venue, leading the yoga classes, and offering exploration and adventure in every day of the retreat. The support from her and everyone in the group was constantly inspiring and comforting, leaving me speechless and extremely saddened when it came to an end.
If I could I would attend every single retreat she puts together because it is truly that remarkable. Don’t sit on this one! :)"
