Beaches, Beginners & Bliss

I just want to go on the record to say that I have the best summer job ever. Not only do I get to teach yoga, but I get to do it on a beach! I am thrilled to announce that I will be back on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie in Vermilion and Huron, Ohio this summer to serve up some pranayama breathing, asana practice, and meditation, all with the best outdoor studio accoutrements – the sun, a yoga playlist courtesy of the rolling surf, gentle cooling breezes, and the sounds and sights of nature in hi-def. Well sometimes those breezes aren’t exactly gentle, but the elements typically all come together for a little slice of nirvana.

My beach yoga schedule is as follows:

Firefly Beach Resort in Huron, Ohio

Friday & Saturday mornings 8:30 – 9:30 AM

Sunset Yoga on Thursday evenings from 7:30 – 8:30 PM

The Firefly Beach Resort is located directly behind the Erie Kai Tavern at 4903 Cleveland Road East (Route 6) in Huron, Ohio.


Main Street Beach in Vermilion, Ohio

Monday & Wednesday mornings 8:30 – 9:30 AM

(please note this is a change from Thursday to Wednesday)

Main Street Beach is located in downtown Vermilion. Just take Main Street until it dead ends into Lake Erie!

I’m also excited to let you know about some special classes I have coming up.

Yoga & Meditation

Monday, January 21, 7:30 – 8:30 PM. Join me for a blissful hour of pranayama breathing exercise and gentle asana yoga practice, followed by meditation. Great for yoga students looking to deepen their understanding of meditation, or those who want to get started with a daily meditation routine.

 

Beginner’s Workshop – Saturday, May 19 – 2:00 to 4:00 PM

Have you always wanted to practice yoga but didn’t know where to start? If you are seeking an experience that will demystify yoga and teach the basics in a supportive and fun environment, then I’ve got a workshop or series of classes that’s right for you!

This workshop will begin with a brief introduction to yoga. Next we’ll move to warm-ups and pranayama (breathing) exercises, proceed to step-by-step asana (pose) instruction of the basic yoga postures to demonstrate proper alignment, providing you with an active yet gentle practice that focuses on breath work, strengthening the core and back, stretching, toning, and guided relaxation. Suggestions for modifications to poses will be presented throughout the class, along with proper use of props and the Sanskrit and English names of the postures. What to bring: A yoga mat (mats are available to borrow at the studio), water, and an open beginner’s mind. Questions will be encouraged and welcome throughout the class. Wear comfortable clothing. Class is held at Yoga Bliss Akron right behind Summit Mall at 3045 Smith Road. Class size is limited to 20 students, so register early by calling (330) 571-7861.

Beginner’s Class Series – Wednesday’s May 16 through June 12 – 7:30 to 8:30 PM

This five-week series of classes covers the same principles taught in the workshop with each class building on the next, leaving you with a core foundation to start your yoga practice. This class is also held at Yoga Bliss Akron.

Please contact me at (330) 289-7026 if you have any questions or need additional details about the classes.

Hope to see you on a yoga mat soon!
