Pause Weekends

Not sure what day it is? Us neither!

The problem with all the days blurring into one right now, is that we kinda lose our weekends. How to punctuate time when each day is the same as the one before it? How to stay motivated when we lose our sense of structure?

We can help you with that. Pause is our online retreat weekend, featuring as many of the components that make up our usual Soul & Surf retreats as we can possibly deliver to you via a screen – food, yoga, surf chat, pranayama, meditation, self-massage, films, surf fitness, discussions & music. Phew! All hail Zoom.

Hosted over two days (BST), Pause is a chance to take stock, to bring both movement and stillness into your home, and to join some familiar faces from the Soul & Surf team around the world in doing so.

Careful. Side effects include inspiration, connection and really good abs.

If you’ve stayed with us before, you’ll know that bringing people together and creating a sense of community is a huge part of why we do what we do – it’s always been about more than just a bed for the night or a few surf and yoga lessons.

We won’t lie to you, replicating that without getting to hang out in person isn’t easy. But we think it’s doable. In fact, even we have been pleasantly surprised by the outcome of our first foray into this brave new world. Our first experiment wasn’t *quite* as good as sharing stories around the breakfast table in Kerala… but it might have been the next best thing. The yoga and fitness sessions will remind you of some of your muscles too, which is always a bonus.

Guest Reviews

“…wanted to say a big thanks for the weekend! It’s been ace seeing everyone and doing all the sessions so thank you loads for pulling it all together.”- Lisa James 

“…just wanted to personally say a huge thank you for a super well planned weekend. It was really nourishing, fun, and felt part of a community. It was lovely to meet you and more of the S&S family too! I have spent some time at S&S Portugal and came away physically and mentally inspired, I felt aligned and balanced which is a huge credit to the people that S&S attracts and the team.” – Rosalind Strach

What’s included?

We’ll be releasing a detailed schedule for the next Pause weekend asap. What we can tell you is that it will include around 10 live sessions and 5 pre-recorded sessions,  including yoga, surf, fitness movies, food, nice chats…as much as we can replicate from our IRL retreats.

Here is an idea of what we got up to last time:

Since we host this as a weekend retreat, the cost is for the full two days (if you’d prefer to drop in and out for some yoga or other fitness classes we might be cooking up, check out our weekly sessions here.) That said, if there are a couple of sessions you’re unable to make, or there’s something on the weekend schedule that doesn’t do it for you, no judgement.

Price per screen

The price to join Pause is £80 per screen, a little extra if more than one is sharing that screen. With 10% of that going to our chosen causes (check the details here), two free spaces for our key workers and three free spaces for guests who have postponed their stay with us in June.

We appreciate, though, that these are uncertain times in many ways – not least financially. If you’re not able to afford that right now, drop us a line at, and let’s see if we can figure something out that works for us both?
