When we say all inclusive, we mean it!
At Vida Surf our mission is to greatly progress your surfing ability over the duration of our trip while keeping things fun and enjoyable for everyone.
You will receive surf coaching that is second to none. Each day you will get 2 hours of lessons with a professional surf coach on a 1 coach to 3 students ratio.
This allows our coaches to break you up into small personal groups to focus on your exact ability level.
Don’t worry though, we will all be out there surfing together so you can still share the stoke with the whole group.
In addition to the surf coaching we will also have a professional photographer taking pictures and videos of each session which we will later review while chilling out at the camp.
This is a great tool to let you see what exactly you are doing well and what you can improve upon. It also makes for a great souvenir from the trip.
Please note, We have chosen to partner with Vida Surf because of their dedication to the locals, and values that are in line with ours! However, some members of the Vida Surf team are male and will be attending our retreat in a leadership capacity.
Krista Birch has been teaching yoga just shy of 8 years. Previously owned and operated Glow Yoga & Wellness studio for 5 years, and almost 3 years ago switched to freelancing in studios, gyms, and businesses around her home town of Cranbrook, British Columbia. She still operates under the Glow Yoga name, and offers retreats locally and also internationally partnered with the Lady Alliance. Krista took her 200hr teacher training out of Yoga Passage in Calgary, AB. With a foundation in Ashtanga , she had also trained in Aerial Yoga in Minneapolis, and Vinyasa with Jonah Kest from LA. She mainly teaches flow style classes from gentle to power.
From conferences to schools, with audiences of all ages, Kieren and The Lady Alliance shares the beauty of growth, acceptance and change, building confidence, collaboration and community, and learning to love your life. Speaking on multiple topics, she shares the message of The Lady Alliance to inspire, empower, and motivate others.
Kieren speaks about her life experiences of cycling across Canada, converting a school bus into a home and travelling for a year, shifting from the corporate lifestyle to entrepreneurship, navigating the social media world with a healthy mindset, and the trials and tribulations that running a business has taught her. She speaks from both life and business experience, sharing her struggles, her road blocks, her heartbreaks and her failures to help others grow.
During our retreat we will be going through 5 self-love workshops:
1) Am I Truly Happy?
Contrary to popular belief, "happiness" is not a lucky outcome resulting from a fortunate upbringing. Rather "happiness" generally results from skills that learned along the way. This workshop makes clear that we can all learn to be "happy".
This workshop helps us break down what "happiness" truly means, and why society misleads us in the never ending search for it.
Together we will reconstruct what happiness should look like, and dissect what our own blockers are to reaching our new level of "happy"
2) Discovering You
After we have worked to break down happiness and dissect what it means for us, we will work to discover what makes you, you. We will discover our values, our non-negotiables, and our underlying goals and dreams that are helping us shape our every day decisions.
3) Learning About Boundaries
Personal boundaries are a vital part of both romantic and non-romantic based relationships. Yet many of us - especially as women - do not practice healthy boundaries, as we feel we need to constantly people-please in order to be accepted.
Boundaries help us stay connected to ourselves, and therefore others, in our relationships.
Together we will work on boundaries that will help guide you into being as you as you can be. Working with our new base level of contentment, as well as our non-negotiables and our values, we will establish boundaries that can help us protect ourselves from unwanted or unnecessary interactions.
4) Goal Setting + Utilizing Your Inner Critic
Our last workshop will be on analyzing our inner critic, and understanding how we can be our own block to achieving "happiness".
Analysis of our inner critic will then guide us into goal setting, where we will take a new look on what goals we should be focusing on and accomplishing, and how we should shape the steps needed to accomplish these goals along the way.
With this entirely new goal setting structure our mental healthy becomes a first and foremost priority in our lives, allowing us to tackle 2021 with ease.
1) Triple Share Room
This room will have three people co-existing in one beautiful space.
Each room has a bunk bed + double bed to sleep 3 guests in their own beds. Each room has a bathroom for ease and privacy.
2) Double Share
You could enjoy a double bed, all to your self! This room is shared with only one other person - allowing you to relax and recharge in peace.
Each room has 2 double beds to sleep 2 guests. Each room has a private bathroom.

How are The Lady Alliance events different from other events?
The number one goal is to introduce you to other kick-ass, adventurous women. It’s all about building community! Our second goal is to introduce you to the outdoors. It’s quite the thing to witness, putting a group of women who are passionate about the outdoors in an epic location. We know it’s a cliche thing to say… but it’s where the magic happens.
Do you arrange transport to the event?
No, all transport to and from the event will be your responsibility unless stated otherwise. We will encourage you to join us on our Facebook group The Lady Alliance Community to help you plan your carpool rides!
When should I book my flight?
We have a minimum number of attendees for this trip to carry through. If you are booking a flight to the location of this event please hold off booking until we have confirmed with you that the minimum number has been reached. Be sure to book a day that allows you to get there before the arrival date and time!
Is food included?
Yes. Unless otherwise specified in the trip itinerary or information.
Is there a minimum age for this event?
Unless otherwise mentioned, 19+ for all events in Canada. 21+ for all events in the USA.
I want to book with friends. How do I do that?
The best way is to add all of the tickets to one cart, that way you know if we have enough spaces.
I'm coming solo. Is that okay?
YES! More than 70% of women who sign up for our trips, sign up solo.
Is a deposit required to secure my place?
Deposits, or full payments, vary trip by trip. Payment prior to the trip is needed to secure your place.
What if I need to cancel?
Please let us know as soon as possible. Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds but you can transfer your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the nature of The Lady Alliance retreats, we don’t offer refunds. We do, however, offer transfers. You are responsible for finding someone to transfer your ticket to and arranging the exchange of funds for your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.
Who will be managing our trip?
One or two of our awesome chapter coordinators will be running your retreat!
Do I have to join in on all the activities?
No. You are not required to join in on all the activities. You can still join us on the retreat, the ticket price remains the same. You do you!
What if the weather doesn't cooperate?
Let’s be honest, Mother Nature never cooperates. That’s why we love her. Keep an eye on the forecast and pack accordingly. We never let uncooperative weather ruin our fun!
