Women´s Empowerment Retreat

A trip with recognized international Surf, Yoga, Photography & empowerment coaches, designed to spark the kind of soul connection that ignites a reclaiming of our innate power.

This project has been years in the making, and I’m so excited it’s finally here! On every single all-women surf trip I have ever coached, I have witnessed first-hand the transformation that occurs within 10 days; everything from building surf

skills that otherwise take years, to gaining a strong sense of self-confidence, and most of all seeing new experiences

empower women to go after everything in life that makes them truly come alive. The challenges, fears and obstacles that show up in the surf reveal exactly how we show up in all areas of life. As we overcome the psychological hurdles, life transforms immediately.

Awera has surf spots to suit every level of experience from gentle beginner-friendly waves to world-class breaks. For this trip, I wanted to bring together four powerful female leaders to join me to share intellectual, artistic, spiritual and athletic portals and doorways to support, uplift and connect women from all over the world to step into their power and recognise their gifts.
