What you'll do
The yoga experience takes place on the right side of the beach as you are facing the ocean, in view of the beautiful natural bridge arch. I will tailor the yoga experience for any level. I'll lead you through an invigorating yoga session influenced by vinyasa and ashtanga yoga forms. My intention is for guests to connect with and use the magnificent forces of nature, including the prana-filled fresh ocean air and the powerful grounding effect that touching the beach has on the body. This experience works great for families and small groups. The experience attracts many new to yoga or with a beginning level of yoga experience. If you are an advanced practitioner you may wish to message me first so we can communicate your needs and make sure you have a great experience. We'll finish with a brief meditation, a cup of delicious and healthful yogi tea and a chance to share your experiences with the group. We may also take some pictures by the natural rock arch to remember your experience!
I've traveled the world studying at some of our planet's premier yoga and meditation centers. I'm certified to teach yoga from the Esalen Institute (2006) where I lived and taught for years. Esalen is known as the birthplace of the "Human Potential Movement". There I practiced with and learned from many world renowned yoga and meditation teachers. I'm honored to teach you the techniques that I've learned in the natural and beautiful setting of Santa Cruz. I'm a Santa Cruz local and I love sharing with people interesting and inside information about this beautiful and magical area.

Where you'll be
This experience takes place on Natural Bridges State Beach, at the end of beautiful West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz. We will meet at the intersection of Swanton Blvd and West Cliff Dr (I will be holding a yoga mat!) and walk together to the beach nearby. We normally practice yoga close to the ocean's edge, the exact place depends on the tide that day. We practice on the far side of the beach from the entrance, in view of the beautiful stone arch.
