WHAT'S IT REALLY LIKE ON A SURF & YOGA RETREAT?

I surveyed the patio where in a few hours I would be practicing yoga, feeling a little intimidated. I mostly used yoga for a good stretch after a bike ride or to get ready for a surf trip. Hopefully I would be able to keep up with the pace of the retreat’s classes, intended for true fanatics.
