To say I had the time of my life at Surf Goddess Retreats-Bali would be an understatement. Years ago, I had read about this retreat and didn't immediately sign-up for it despite it catching my interest. At the end of 2013, when I realized I would be turning 40 in May 2014, I decided to "treat" myself with the gift of celebrating me among the waves and sunshine of Bali. When I returned to the Surf Goddess website, I noticed they were having a retreat on my exact birthday! "That's it," I told myself, "You're registering right now, this very minute!" And, I did and it was worth every single penny, long flight, wipeout, and mosquito bite!
For me, the surfing and yoga were my complete joy throughout this journey. I also made some VERY great new girlfriends from other parts of the world. This retreat is a game-changer: you have the time to learn about yourself; challenge yourself to doing something daring by surfing in Bali; and at the same time, there's plenty of relaxation time to just pick up a magazine and zone out or swim in the pool. The staff: Melinda, Sally, Widya, Michelle, and the chefs, massage therapists, drivers to-and-from surf lessons, plus the phenomenal surf instructors, all make you feel soooo special, taken care of and like a complete goddess. We really felt cared for, respected, appreciated and loved. In my opinion, I really felt blessed to have such gracious staff who really made us feel like we were in our own home away from home.
If you've been contemplating participating this retreat, let the contemplation stop; it's time to sign-up, NOW. I promise you, you will have not one regret. The minute you step off the plane into Bali and witness that priceless Balinese smile as well as eat your first Balinese meal, you know you've made the right decision to celebrate you in an exotic, tropical island which truly is a Paradise. And, Surf Goddess will make it that much more complete by making you feel like you've landed in Heaven. Thanks Surf Goddess for making my 40th birthday so memorable. I can't wait to return for my next retreat and surf with you all again. Hugs from Kuwait.
