I am going regularly to morning sessions of Yoga at the Betty Surf house in Canoa. It is so invigorating and a great way to start the day. Either at the house, or right on the beach, the Yoga classes are fun and also catered to ability. I have tried surfing a few times but have easily given up. The classes are inspiring me to give it another go! The instructor, Patricia is very professional, friendly and fun. I highly recommend Betty surf and yoga camp.

After just an hour or two of lessons with a very patient and encouraging surf professor, I was able to get up and ride the waves. I am no where close to being an "awesome rad surfer dude" but I now know the basics and I dont think I could have done it without Betty Surf Camp.

While in Canoa, I also did a couple of yoga lessons. I took yoga classes in the states and it was never this cool. Maybe its being on the beach in a great environment. Or maybe it was Patricia's fun, yet serious teaching style that made it so great. All I know is that I will do a yoga class now anytime I visit Canoa. Its definitely a good time and makes me feel great afterwards.

This is a very professional, well run Surf and Yoga camp. It is definitely world-class and has a great future in Canoa. Keep up the great work!

I traveled the coast of Ecuador for 3 weeks, always with having beach yoga classes in mind but never getting the opportunity to do so. So I was happy when I stumbled across the little town of Canoa where the people are wonderful and the beach and surf-scene is spectacular. To top it off, a true highlight of my time in Canoa was the time I spent with Betty Surf and Yoga. The staff was extremely friendly and flexible (Patricia set up an extra Yoga lesson for us the next morning upon request), and the yoga lessons were well-done and enjoyable, while still the right amount of challenging for intermediate yoga-practicers. Also, Betty Surf and Yoga hosts awesome projects for the local community - only one more reason why to channel your recourses towards this place!

I've been two or three times because I liked it so much. I've just done the yoga and that was awesome - there's nothing like a Betty yoga class to set you up for a relaxing day at the beach. The instructor is really friendly too, which is nice. I thoroughly recommend Betty Surf and Yoga.

Betty surf and yoga is the only comprehensive surf lessons available in Canoa. With a full stretch yoga workout orientated towards working surf muscles beforehand and certified instructors. I can not stress enough that Betty provides a true professional surf class. With yoga every day at 9am, Betty has the vibe that combines mind and body completely with the white sand beaches of Canoa. I've worked with a lot of instructors and highly recommend Betty.
