11 days of the camp we will start with a morning yoga, followed by optional guiding around the island and your choice of the afteryoga credit based activity of the day.
The remaining 3 days will be spent adventuring around Siargao and the amazing islands nearby.
A full day trip where we will explore the 3 little islands that surround Siargao. Our transport will be a traditional philippino boat with a local captain. First stop will be the Guyam island. Guyam is a tropical island as you see on the cover of magazines. The only inhabitants are the palm trees and fresh coconuts. The second stop will be the Naked island close to which is a beautiful coral reef. The third and final stop is the Dako island. The largest of the three, where the locals will prepare some delicious food and specialities.
Island hopping on Siargao
Pacifico, North-Eastern part of Siargao
A whole day trip where we will take a plunge into the magical Magpupungko Rock Pools followed by a day spent on the white beaches of Pacifico. Pacifico is ideal for surfing, relaxation and meditation. If we have time on our way back, we will explore the freshwater Tayabang cave in the middle of the jungle.
Night adventure on the Guyam island
We will head out for the night adventure on Guyam island, late in the afternoon. We will enjoy the sunset and those that will want, can pratice some sunset yoga. Next we will enjoy some food and sit with some chill out music by the fire and enjoy the incredible view of the Milky Way. We will be sleeping in the traditional philippino hammocks. In the morning we will greet the sun with the sun salutations, have a fresh coconut to start our day and head back to Siargao.

The lunch and dinner will be individual, however there are plenty of options. Maťo a Dada will be happy to show you their favourite foods and restaurants.
SurfSiargao is a becoming and increasingly popular place for the surfers because of the quality of waves and numerous surf spots. It is THE place in the Philippines if you are looking for a fulfilling surfing experience.
PackingDo not overthink it with packing. You will need a few nice clothes/dress for a party here and there, but forget about things such as highheels, as flip flops is all you will need. Other than that pack a few casual clothes and ideally bring a cap or a hat as the sun is quite strong. Do not forget your swimsuit and the sunscreen and keep in mind to leave some space for a souvenier or two.
LaundryThere is a laundry service in General Luna. For 1 euro, you can get most of your clothes washed. They are very good and fast, you bring your clothes in one day and go pick them up the next.
FoodThe island is just waking up in terms of tourism, so do not expect streets full of restaurants, caffés, shops and bars. There are a few, but the real food experience is hidden in the local street restaurants which will amaze you with the quality, price and taste of the food. The more local you go, the better food experience you will get. How to get around locally? Mato and Dada will guide you around.
WaterAs everywhere in asia, you can not drink the water from the tap. You will need to drink bottled water, or water from special water dispensers. Ice is made of drinking water so you do not have to beware old drinks.
PassportYou will need a passport valid at least 6 months from the date of arrival in the Philippines, at least 2 free pages and a printed out return flight ticket out of the Philippines.
YogamatBring with you your yogamat, some yoga clothing and perhaps a small towel. If you are using yoga blocks or any other yoga equipment, be sure to bring it with you.
A happy story of three friends.
This is Shorty, Susan and Froggy. All close and great friends and truly enjoy each others’ company. They all love to travel, get to know exotic places, meet new people and experience extraordinary adventures. They have traveled together before and are used to making compromises. Shorty sometimes has to give way to Susan, another time Susan to Froggy etc..
Shorty is an experienced surfer, but has never tried Froggy’s favourite yoga. Nevertheless Shorty is smart and he is fully aware of how yoga can positively impact him and his surfing. Susan is a just a beginner in surfing, but she really enjoyed yoga and acroyoga classes when she was at home. Froggy does not know whether she will be into surfing that much, but she knows that she is spiritual and that she would love to experience a true asian yoga and come back home as relaxed as can be. If it was only possible for all of them to do what they want and yet travel together without restrictions and too many compromises..
Susan has stumbled upon the yogovibe.com website and is eager to share the great news with the rest of the bunch. She has found an ideal camp CHILLI, where they will experience the beautiful, not yet so touristy island Siargao – also known as Bali 30 years ago – and all their expectations of an ideal trip will be fully fulfilled.
And that is what happened. Shorty finally experienced the relaxation and happiness that yoga can bring. However he did not miss the everyday swell and went out to catch some epic waves. He mangaed to get the first barrel of his life and now he is putting toghether a surf edit. Susan has last surfed almost a year ago, so she decided to start with 2 hours with the instructor first. She realised that surfing is pretty easy to forget when you do not do it too often, so she added another 2, but later she was surfing with Shorty. She knew from her experience that surfing is very physical and that yoga is the best way to relax the body, so she decided to do yoga or have a massage every other day to ease the muslce ache. She decided on the go, depending on how she felt, she could change it anytime. Froggy promised to the crew that she will try surfing, however it was not really her kind of thing, so she enjoyed the everyday positives of yoga and massages. She will never forget the overnight trip to the Guyam island and claims that she has never ever seen so many stars in her life.
They have all agreed that the trip was epic and now they are showing off pictures to their friends and colleagues .. Of course in a friendly manner .. Shorty in the barrel, Susan under the palm tree, Froggy at the beach … But this is the story of these three friends. Pretty sure you don’t want to be only hearing stories like this, so why don’t you come and write a story of your own.
you will definately not be bored
looking forward to meeting you
