What more could you want?
By Suzee Skwiot - November 17, 2017
When it comes time for vacay, there’s not much more we want from a trip than sweat-inducing workouts, a gorgeous setting and some well-deserved relaxation. And thankfully, Surf Yoga Beer has all three, with plenty of entertainment to spare.
The company, started by SoulCycle trainer Mantas Zvinas, is all about the merger of health and wellness and bringing adventurous fitness to its participants.
So if you’re ready to jet set to Mexico, Nicaragua, Ibiza, the Amalfi Coast (and more!), or are looking for a staycation-style adventure in Manhattan, meditation and fun activities await.
With a roster of impressive instructors (check out their SYB “leaders”), you can take a kettlebell class, a yoga session, or a high-intensity workout that’ll get you seriously sweating.
“We started in 2014 by creating a workout routine that balances intense exercise, finding zen, and indulging in the fun side of life,” the company announces on its website. “You’ll have the opportunity to achieve things you didn’t know you could do, you’ll be able to make new friends, and you get to do it all in an environment that feels like a sleepaway camp for adults with instructors and trainers who are experts in figuring out how to make you into the best version of yourself.
With a group of 12 to 20 participants on each retreat, you can not only get an intimate workout with some hands-on assisting, but a travel experience that you’ll remember forever.
With trips to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Miami, Colorado, Belize, and more, you can head to parts of the world you’ve yet to explore and get away from anywhere for a few days to a full week.
“We chose Surf Yoga Beer because they’re three things we love, but there’s a whole lot more to us than that,” the company says. “For example, we also love tacos and running, salsa dancing and sailing, hiking and hugging, and the list goes on. Sometimes we travel together, to places like Hawai’i and Costa Rica, or just down to Rockaway Beach. At the end of the day, we’re a group of friends (often new friends, always great friends) who believe that being active together is the best way to feel more alive.”
And with curated activities and events, it’s a basic guarantee that you’ll never be bored, or underwhelmed.
For those looking for a Manhattan-based adventure, Mantas is also a regular teacher at BootYcamps at Bandier and at SoulAnnex in Union Square in New York City.
But if you have some PTO to burn, a tropical getaway (or a winter ski trip, if you’re looking for a more cold-weather vacation), might just be in order.
