About our Salty Soul
Belle is a qualified surf coach and yoga instructor with over 20 years of professional teaching experience around the world.
After completing a BSC in Eco Tourism Belle began the salt gypsy lifestyle that has lasted more than 20 years! This has included hosting Surf and yoga retreats in the likes of Costa Rica, Bali, Fiji, Western Australia and Europe.
Owning and operating a surf school at Broulee on the NSW South Coast and spending a life of living and teaching yoga; uniting these passions was a natural progression. The journey brought Belle to Yamba on the North coast of NSW. Which has been home to Salty Soul Wellness for the last 5 years.
Salty Soul Wellness offers weekly yoga classes, private surf lessons and combined retreats for couples and groups. We off an all-round experience focussed on health, well-being and a strong connection with the beautiful surroundings of Yamba and the Clarence valley.
It all started being pushed into my first wave as a 12 year old! Since being immersed in intensive yoga teachings around the world, I have learnt the importance of health and well-being through a connection to nature, the ocean and the rejuvenating qualities of Yin Yoga.
'Nurturing ourselves on a deeper level through Yoga allows us to create new pathways in our body and mind. From this space, I believe we can all open into a more healthy, authentic and abundant life. Only now, 20 years later am I beginning to truly understand the subtleties of Yin and Yang energy. It's the balance of masculine and feminine, and how that correlates into our daily lives.’
Releasing that positive energy through a beautiful art form such as surfing is the perfect way to balance that Yin and Yang.
Salty Soul Wellness offers the opportunity to experience the essence of the surfing and yoga lifestyle. We believe there is pure joy and freedom in this unique synergistic relationship.
