Make Waves Retreat

Make Waves Retreat is a stand-up paddle board camp with the purpose of empowering young women 13-18 years old to "Make Waves" and "Move Mountains".  Throughout the day we will spend time on the beach discussing different skills that will help each participant make waves in the real world. These include but aren’t limited to building self-confidence, positive self-talk, emotional intelligence and conflict management. The skills discussed on the beach are then implemented as the camp hits the water for some paddle boarding!  The retreat implements these skills through different paddle boarding activities including learning how to paddle board (basic to advanced), games, and yoga.  

 No paddle boarding or swimming experience needed!

We are thrilled to have Lauren join us for the third season. We love all that she brings to the retreats and couldn't imagine them without her.

Lauren Laudani

SUP Yoga Instructor

Lauren Laudani, ERYT500, has been a dedicated and passionate yoga practitioner since 2009, initially to help manage the difficulties associated with her rheumatoid arthritis. Embracing both the mental and physical benefits of a consistent practice, yoga has now become a meaningful part of her daily life. Adventurous by nature, Lauren brings a lighthearted and playful energy to the practice, encouraging laughter and play. Her thirst for travel, deep appreciation for water, and love of learning has extended her teaching practice to standup paddleboard yoga, inversion play, and even acro yoga! Be ready for an experience that will be both challenging and rewarding - body, mind, and soul :) 

My mission is to inspire others to live their truest and most authentic lives by fully living inside my own. 

It’s never too late to BEGIN AGAIN.
