I attended a yoga retreat at Rise Up and I honestly can't say enough amazing things about the experience. First off, what a spectacular location! The water was warm, the beach was massive and mostly private - and the views (especially at sunset) were unparalleled. The food was fresh, creative, healthy, colourful and delicious. [sighs at the memory of the delicious green sauce] But most of all, the staff were fantastic. Completely welcoming, helpful and SUPER fun. I came home with a huge admiration for all of the people in the Rise Up family - their obvious pursuit of happiness in their daily lives is inspiring. I would say though, that the surfing was a definite highlight - awesome waves and wicked talented (and patient) instructors. I could go on...but really you should just go and experience it for yourself!!
