Sup Yoga Weekend Retreat: Laguna Beach & Newport Beach
When: April 18-20 > Day Retreat options available – see below.
Laguna Beach is a magical place: Where the land meets the sea, majestic cliffs tower over secluded beaches and coves. Dolphins, California Sea lions, and schools of fish frolic in the water just offshore from Bliss home base, Diver’s Cove.
Experience superior guest service and luxury at the Inn at Laguna Beach. From fresh baked cookies at check-in to breakfast and a sunset wine hour on the rooftop deck, the Inn provides for all your needs and wants.
Leave your car keys behind and explore this beautiful coastal town by bike or foot. Let yourself meander along the oceanfront walkways in Heisler Park, or take some time to peruse the art galleries and boutiques in downtown Laguna.
With both scenery and service unparalleled, Laguna Beach will take your breath away. It will be a weekend of healthy eating, cruising, building new relationships, exploring the local culture & landscape, and, of course, paddling and yoga while basking in each other’s vibrant energy.
