Surfing, yoga, cooking and wellness: these 4 passions are what lead Lulu Agan, globe-trotting surfer and yogini, to SwellWomen which launched in 2003. Having spent more than a decade as a private chef, Lulu cultivates a great knowledge and enthusiasm for top-quality cuisine that promotes glowing health, from the inside out. Lulu is at most home amongst the waves and beaches in the tropics, where she continuously nurtures an uncanny ability to track down the most remote, lush surf breaks — no matter where in the world she is!
A certified yoga instructor since 2017, Lulu deeply respects how the ancient art of yoga can temper the explosive energy used during surfing, as well as yoga’s potential to bring together people of any country, age or gender. To Lulu, the ocean has the power to erase egos, unleash bare human spirit and teach one to color outside of the lines, while yoga brings balance and a deep, supportive connection to oneself — all lessons that can be easily carried from the surfboard or yoga mat back to daily life, allowing that raw passion to color our every moment. From these philosophies, SwellWomen was born!
Through the pursuit of her own joy, Lulu has able to bring SwellWomen’s signature bliss to women (and men!) all over the world with her intentionally designed, deeply expansive, culturally immersive retreats. Lulu aims to empower her retreats and inspire her guests by being a living example of an impassioned, well-balanced life; filled to the brim with as much surfing, yoga meditation and gratitude as humanly possible.
