Doing something for the first time can be really magical and memorable. Who can forget their first kiss, first visit to the ocean, or very first time in downward dog?

I’ve made a lot of first-time memories on my yoga mat, like the first time I ever did a tripod headstand, the first time I blogged about yoga **, the first time I cried on my yoga mat, the first yoga class I taught, and this year, I’ve been fortunate to add a few more…

Hosting my first beach yoga retreat in Aruba!


Having close to 60 yogis show up to practice yoga with me on a gorgeous evening underneath the super full moon at Firefly Beach.

And, next week, another big first: I’m going to teach my very first yoga class with live music! Yep, it is going to be like my own mini yoga festival with a sunset beach yoga class and the musical stylings of Sid Jordan and his acoustic guitar. I’m a huge fan of what happens when yoga and music come together and write about it a lot here on the DDD, so I’m more than just a little geeked out about this!

This is going to be one of my last summer beach yoga classes of the 2013 season, so come on out and join me for this special evening. Practicing yoga on the sand right in front of Lake Erie with the sunset lighting up the sky, and the wind and waves is already pretty special, but adding in live music will make for a truly memorable night! If you have never attended a yoga class with music, do yourself a favor and check it out next Thursday, August 29, at Firefly Beach in Huron, Ohio at 7:30 PM.

The Firefly Beach Resort is located behind the Erie Kai Tavern at 4903 Cleveland Road East (Route 6) in Huron, Ohio, just minutes away from Vermilion and Sandusky.  All levels are welcome for this Hatha style yoga class.

How cool would it be if this is your first yoga class, or first beach yoga class, or first yoga class with live music?!
