Flow Island Surf & Yoga Retreat Siargao


Flow Summer 2014 adventures continue to Siargao Island for the Flow Island Surf & Yoga Retreat! We spent 4 days in this gorgeous island and each day was a different adventure!


We stayed in Siargao Inn's, peaceful tropical bungalow, surrounded by lots of plants and greenery.



First in the agenda was surfing lessons with Siargao Island Surf School at a surf spot called Jacking Horse. The lessons were led by head instructor, Carlito Nogalo, one of the country's best surfers. Our Timex visors came in handy as it was scorching hot that day!


Super stoked Kaye with our surf coach Carlito!





Both participants were still stoked from their first surf session that the next day we decided to go surf again at different spot this time at Daku Island. The waves were breaking in the middle of the ocean and it could only be reached by a pump boat! We also had the waves all to ourselves that day, how awesome is that!




After a fun-filled 2 hour surf session, we had a picnic lunch in Daku Island. Fresh coconut water, grilled seafood, grilled veggies and fruits were prepared for us!




Spent the afternoon island hopping to Naked Island and Guyam Island.







Day 3 was spent at the Magpupungko Tidal Pools! Gorgeous rock pools with clear jade waters appear during low tide. They're nature's infinity pools and we just lingered in it's pure waters all afternoon.



A Flow retreat is not complete without a green smoothie and raw food workshop! We always source our veggies and fruits from the local market, our superfoods were provided by The Healthy Grocery!


Moringana malunggay capsules and teas are always a Flow staple as well! 







After all the surfing, swimming and activities, a yoga session was just what we needed on our last day. Lili, a yoga teacher from Manila who is now based in Siargao led a relaxing morning yoga class in Siargao Inn's peaceful garden.

Thanks heaps to our participants Kaye, Cha and Caroline, our yoga instructor Lili, our hosts Rico and Nildie of Siargao Inn, for making this retreat in paradise a very memorable one.

A shout out all our sponsors Timex, Roxy, Moringana, Belo Essentials SunExpert, Breville, The Healthy Grocery, The Juice Barista, Beyond Yoga, Heyjow, Strip, Browhaus, Nyogi Pure Coconut Water, Lagu, Rawlicious, Cutieverse, When In Manila and My Life On Board for all the support and freebies that we all enjoy!

Father's Day Gift Guide


Father's Day is coming up - have you thought about what to give your husbands, fathers or brothers for their special day yet? Here's a gift guide curated by the FLOW gals to make your lives much more simpler!

1. Go With The Flow Shirt - A feel good statement cotton tee that dad will surely love! Good thing the shirts are on sale now at The Flow Shop! Get them while stocks are available ;)

2. Raw Elements Sunscreen - For extra sun protection, get him the all natural raw elements sunscreen lotion. It lathers well enough to disappear into the skin. No white marks that would shudder every man away.

3. Moringana: every dad's health is vital as the head provider of the family. Jumpstart his detox by supplying his daily green needs through Moringana capsules. May be taken orally, in green smoothies or sprinkled on his food :)


4. Lagu - If your dad loves the sand and sea, he will surely appreciate a Lagu beach blanket!

5. Sponsor a retreat! Have you seen our full 2014 line up? Sponsor your special father to a flow retreat. You know he deserves this getaway! Check FLOW surf yoga samba schedules at www.flowsurfyogasamba.com
