ABOUT MOMO BEACH HOUSE

Momo Beach House is a quaint boutique resort along the sandy shores of Momo Beach in Panglao Island Bohol. This homey bed and breakfast makes use of natural materials and local products as much as possible. It was built using mostly upcycled materials, most of the furniture pieces are made from recycled wood and were repurposed from various places in the Philippines. The hand towels in all guest rooms are made in Ilocos, the bath and body products all throughout the resort are all natural as well. All these make Momo Beach House an idealt place to detox and re-connect with nature.


THE SESSIONS


Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, meditative style of yoga with poses that are held for longer periods. You will be relaxing into a pose for 3-5 minutes, accessing the deeper parts of the body such as connective tissues and fascia. Not only is this style perfect for beginners, it is also a good practice for those who want to de-stress and even for athletes to gain more flexibility.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a yoga style in which each movement is synchronized with breath - one breath, one movement as they call it. Vinyasa involves continuous, flowing movements that will make you feel like as if you are dancing. This yoga style is ideal for beginners and for those who are up for a little challenge as well.


Stand Up Paddleboard

Bohol is one of the most beautiful places to visit when you are in the Philippines. Bohol is very rich in nature and bio-diversity. It is the home of many exotic wildlife and is rich on rivers, mountains and white-sand beaches. Explore this mystical island in an 1 hour Stand Up Paddleboard river tour. In this activity, you will learn the basics of paddleboarding. Expect to see local culture of Boholanos and be amazed by the natural sceneries and wildlife.

Flow Surf & Yoga Retreat Pagudpud










Spend a blissful weekend by the sea at the Flow Surf & Yoga Retreat, September 26-28, 2014 at Kapuluan Vista Resort, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte! Learn to surf in azure northern seas, practice yoga in the resort's lush gardens, learn to prepare healthy eats in our green smoothie and raw food workshop, explore the famous big lagoon and go on a little hiking adventure!

ABOUT KAPULUAN VISTA RESORT

Hidden in the north you will find a small piece of paradise called Kapuluan Vista Resort. It is a surprising escape for those looking for adventure or those who simply want to enjoy reading a book on a white sand beach. Quietly nestled between three mountains and the sea, Kapuluan Vista Resort offers the perfect mix of natural surroundings making it an excellent place for snorkeling, swimming, diving, surfing, hiking, biking and enjoying nice long walks along endless, expansive beaches.


THE SESSIONS

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga is a yoga style in which each movement is synchronized with breath - one breath, one movement as they call it. Vinyasa involves continuous, flowing movements that will make you feel like as if you are dancing. This yoga style is ideal for beginners and for those who are up for a little challenge as well.


Surfing

Pagudpud is one of the last virgin surf destinations of the Philippines. The perfect-picture waves, the beauty of nature and the lack of surfers crowding the line-up, all combine to make this a world-class surf destination. Swells bring in several set-ups to life almost year round, especially during the southeast monsoon, July-September. During the northeast monsoon, October-March, we get good waves combined with wind for windsurfing and kite surfing. At the same time, surf is perfect at surrounding areas where the wind is offshore. Surfboard and paddleboard rentals are available. For those who want to learn this exciting sport, we are the only resort that offers daily surf lessons by experienced surf instructors. For safety reasons, novice surfers are not permitted to rent a surfboard without an instructor.


Juicing & Detox Workshop

Learn the basics and benefits of green smoothie and learn how to prepare simple yet healthy raw food snacks.


Hiking

The hills behind the resort are great for hiking and bicycling and offer stunning views of the beaches and the unique coastline.

Take a pleasant ten-minute stroll through the coconut groves to the Big Lagoon. Blue Lagoon is perfect for swimming, snorkeling or sunbathing. For those who just want to relax, there’s always a good book to read on the white sand beach.


Pool Intention

An intimate, meditative session that will be held in the pool area. 
Set your intention and send it out to the universe!

Flow Luxe Retreat Anilao

There is a certain calm that the ocean brings to people. All the elements help create the perfect state of being: the salty detoxifying water, lulling breeze and rhythmic sound of the waves. This is precisely why MOST Flow retreats choose venues by the sea. This one is no different. Aiyanar Beach & Dive Resort hosted the FLOW Anilao Yoga, Dive and Capoeira retreat last June 21-22.




All retreat participants happy with their FLOW goodie bag and loot from generous sponsors!



Capoeria class led by Gio Cinco of EBC Philippines helped loosen up the people on the first day of the retreat.


Check out how they move!


During the raw food and green smoothie workshop, the group made raw pesto pasta using zuchini, a nutritious acai bowl and all natural iced tea using Moringana!




On the second day, we took our yoga mats out for some yoga lovin' in nature. Monica Eleazar Manzano led a Vinyasa class with focus on the breath.






Some participants chose to dive soon after class. The breath exercises during yoga helped them sustain their breathing under the water, too! 


We ALWAYS give out prizes to guests who have shown us their beaming personalities or skill at an activity.







Thank you to all of you who joined us for this short but sweet escape! Thanks also to all our sponsors for supporting #FlowLuxeAnilao.
