Rochelle Ballard, a professional female surfer and veteran of the Association of Surfing Professional’s (ASP) World Championship Tour, is considered one of the best female tube riders in the world. She believes Surfing and yoga is a way of life that serves up constant lessons. Rochelle is one of the most influential female surfers of our time who has lived the life of a giant through the body of a tiny woman.  Since her youth she has been working for the progression of women’s surfing.

Throughout her career, she has been adamant about giving back, be it for women’s surfing or the environment and community. During her tenure on the ASP World Tour, coupled with her work with the movie Blue Crush – on and off screen – she fueled a generation of women surfers. After becoming a massage therapist and a yoga teacher Rochelle began offering wellness packages to share different modalities with visitors, locals, and surfers. As women’s surfing began to move from obscure beachbreaks to the Outer Reefs like Cloudbreak and Teahupoo, Ballard led the way, often at risk of her own health. Passionately sprouted from the seeds of surfing, Surf Into Yoga Wellness Packages are the combination of Rochelle’s unique personal know-how as a professional athlete and bodywork facilitator, encouraging a growing consciousness of mind, body, spirit, and the footprints we leave on this planet.
