Come join Stephanie and Half-Life in Huatulco, Mexico for a yoga and foil experience of a lifetime!  New to Foiling or Yoga?  No problem.  Our sessions will be targeted specifically for the skillsets, flexibility and strength associated with the various forms of foiling (wing, prone, wake, eFoil, etc.  These invaluable experiences and skill-sets will be something you'll take with you for a lifetime.  Additionally, we'll introduce you to breathing exercises that will help you remain calm when you're out on the water.   

Each day we'll start out with yoga, then head out either from the beach or boat to work on your foiling skills.  Conditions will determine which disciplines we pursue, with a baseline expectation of wake foiling through the beautiful waters of Huatulco with Half-Life's world-class instructors.  Whether you're new to foiling or yoga or looking to build upon your skills, this retreat will take you to the next level!

LOCATION & GETTING THERE:
 

HUATULCO | OAXACA, MEXICO

Huatulco is located in the southern portion of Mexico in the state of Oaxaca. Located oceanside of the Pacific, this tropical setting provides the perfect environment for incredible adventures and warming of the soul. Huatulco is a breathtaking coastal escape. Found where the Sierra Madre Mountains meet the Pacific Ocean on Mexico’s western boundary, this spectacular stretch of coastline boasts nine bays, 36 beaches, and has served as a natural playground for generations.

This stretch of coastline arguably offers some of the best, if not the most accessible, bays and beaches to be found along Mexico’s Pacific coastline. In fact, Huatulco offers some of the best coastal scenery available anywhere. Cliffs and rocky shores separated by calm bays with sandy beaches provide breathtaking landscapes.

Not all bays and beaches are accessible by land, however. In fact, the majority of them are only accessible by boat which allows you to experience some pristine beaches, fishing, awesome diving, and snorkeling.  

Taxis are the primary mode of transportation in this small community. The prices are geared toward the local population and are more than reasonable, cheap in fact. Three or four dollars can take you across town.  

 

The weather is great, the people are friendly, the crowds are somewhere else, and your money goes a long way. Huatulco is  peaceful, quiet, safe, quaint.  It is know for its cleanliness and environmental protection.  It has been awarded the Green Globe Certification for its dedication to economic, social and environmental management. 

Huatulco, México is the perfect place for the eco-friendly and environmentally-conscious traveler.
