Your life is calling! In this one precious life, you have an opportunity to step more fully into yourself, pursue the dreams that touch your soul, and live on purpose surrounded by a community that is rooting for your greatest success. Join Dirty South Yoga on this adventure to Pichilemu, Chile to dip your toes in the Pacific, practice yoga oceanside, surf (optionally), and create space for your wildest dreams to come true. This is not a {retreat} to get away, consider this an adventure to move you closer towards the life and dreams that await.

THE DESTINATION

Pichilemu meaning "small forest" in indigenous language, is a quiet fisherman's village surrounded by tall green pine trees and a deep blue Pacific Ocean.

Nowadays this town is known as the home of world-class surfers and nominated as the 7th World surfing reserve

(read more here).

"Punta De Lobos" is at the south tip of town and is where we will spend our days surfing, paddle-boarding (SUP), kayaking, doing yoga or simply walking along the black sand of the beach. While in the village we will get to feel the tranquil rhythm of dirt roads and horse rides.

THE YOGA

Every day Yoga that makes you connect with your deepest dreams and purpose in life!

Daily Yoga practices in order to connect with the breath, awaken the body, soul, and mind, and connect you to what makes you feel most alive. The classes throughout the week will include vinyasa, hatha, and restorative classes incorporating elements of breathwork, meditation and *magic led by three beloved Dirty South Yoga instructors.
