How to Prepare
As your instructor, the aim now and has always been ~ is for you to 'leave feeling better than you arrived'. . stay longer ~ breathe ~ marinate ~ challenge ~ drop into posture ~ explore. The beginner and the advanced practitioner welcome ~ outdoor yoga + a new day make us equals in levels of experience.
All Ages Inclusive 4+
Some young ones have the attention and interest built in ~ as a caretaker ~ you'll know if you'll be able to practice along side your young one and not chase them down the beach.
Socially distanced : together we have space
To start I will wear a mask and will offer antibacterial spray after signing release form.
Savasana part of every practice ~ tends to be at the end so you can fully relax before moving into your morning!
A Kripalu based yoga practice . . . with an attitude of pain is information / communication of current boundaries, if we honor pain ~ the boundaries may change / shift and greater movement may be achieved / space experienced. Long term, sustainable mind/body practice is goal.
$20 per practice, per person. Cash or Venmo
Kripalu Based 2004 and Immersed in Nature since 2008
*Must be able to move from sitting to standing position independently

My first experience w/ formal yoga practice was in the Mountains of Colorado with a Boulder Native in 1998 and likely the first AH-HA! moment I can clearly recall is in 1987 in gymnastics, stretching on the mat with a beam of sun streaming through the tall gymnasium windows in Philadelphia.
