Loren Enfield 1


Loren Enfield surfs the waves of life with peace, love and harmony. Through her two businesses she helps people live more positive, healthy and balanced lives. Co-founding Soul Surfing Surf School in Port Macquarie 12 years ago with her husband Corey, and running Ascension Hatha Yoga classes with Soul Ascension Yoga over the last few years, she brings the beautiful union and best of both of these healing and revitalising practices to life.

Surf lessons are just the beginning with Soul Surfing! Several years ago a Diploma in Yoga Teaching was added after her personal surfing and yoga journey began over 21years ago. Loren draws upon her many skills gained during the last 25years – from a Bachelor Degree in Sport, managing childcare and community recreation and health programs, instructing swimming and surfing, and working in a High School for disengaged youth, she has dived deeply into teaching over various continuums. With a love of learning, growing and sharing wisdom gained, the lessons Loren delivers bring more balance to people than is required to stand on a surfboard.

The positive impacts of surfing and yoga and other outdoor nature play can bring an ocean full of health, wellbeing and inspiration. Statistically proven by researchers and personally experienced by Loren Enfield, Corey and their family of 4 beautiful children. You’ll witness nearly any day in Port Macquarie the Enfield family, surfing, playing or working together as a family or in their original and award winning After School Surf and Earth, Women on Waves, Weekend warriors or Soul Sisters retreat programs. Running surf lessons, programs or yoga classes for both children and adults keeps Loren grateful every day for living her dream she established in the year 2000!

When life gives you waves – learn how to surf them!


Ocean Mandala

Enjoy a meditative walk by the ocean. Allow the the ocean to clear your mind and connect to the centre of your being. In this group activity, you will collect shells, rocks, driftwood and whatever else speaks to you as you take in your environment silently and allow it to resonate with your internal space. The group will create a mandala in silence from what was collected and share about the experience once the mandala is completed. This is a wonderful internal process with the power to gain a deeper understanding of who you are.
