The iX Mind and Ocean Journey is the perfect opportunity for those looking to experience nature and themselves like never before.

A journey you’ll never forget.


iX Journey programs take you to breathtaking locations that reconnect you with the power and majesty of nature.

Zero to surfing hero

The Mind and Ocean Journey includes daily surf sessions, to teach you both how to shred long wave breaks and understand how to read wind and ocean conditions.

Transform your body and mind.

Our daily yoga classes will not only improve your physical mobility, but also enhance your ability to connect with the present and remain calm during the stressful times in your life.

Learn the power of conservation.

Better yourself by bettering the environment around you. Learn about the basics of ocean conservation, and mankind's ability to help or harm the coast through tourism and development.

 Own the morning with a empowering yoga session. Deepen your practice every day. 


Silent meditation, followed by journaling, to help get your thoughts out of your mind.


Time to hit the waves! Go out with a surf teacher who’ll help you navigate the changing winds and tides. 


The afternoon is yours to explore, chill, journal, or chat. Take a trip into the jungle or connect with Mexican beach culture.


A dinner out and maybe some drinks with your new classmates. Don’t stay out too late - you’ve got an early morning to prepare for!

Why iX?

There's nothing quite like it.

Phoebe Brown

Senior Director at EY-Parthenon, Private Equity and Technology

"iX presented a world of opportunities I hadn't yet considered. Learning about a new industry,
exploring an incredible country, embarking on exhilarating adventures, and getting hands-on experience in
an internship with an international company."

Alec Ortiz

MD Student at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

"iX was an opportunity to grow and discover—to explore a dynamic and captivating place, develop practical technical skills, and leave behind the comfort of the familiar to join a diverse assembly of scholars, artists, and adventurers at the edge of the world."

Dhruv Johri

Chief Technology Officer at GoCook LLC.

"I feel that iXperience exposes you to an entirely new dimension of understanding. I learned about an entirely new field of study while being exposed to a new culture in Tel Aviv. They have an amazing team of people with them. I Really learned a lot."
