About the event
You guys sold out Octobers event in less than a week so we're excited to bring more of surfing into our 2021 roster.
2020 was undoubtedly a year without a manual. We've were asked to break old habits, surrender, and learn to be comfortable in all the discomfort that's been thrown our way.
On more than one occasion I’ve likened the experience to the ocean... some days we've been catching all the waves and other days we've just been trying catch our breath so we don’t drown.
Yoga has always been what I’ve turned to catch my breath with the ebb and flow of life. Our breath is our only constant; it gives us life and it takes it away. Learning to maintain our breath, maintains our vitality. Our breath more greatly attunes us to the subtle language of our body to move through physical + emotional tension, pain and some may even say illness.
I’d like to invite you even deeper into this practice with me. Spend a morning deepening and enriching your yoga practice while learning to apply it to a new challenge. When we can learn to practically apply the wisdom we learn and FEEL on a yoga mat, we begin to embody this practice and the thousands of years of knowledge it has to support us in our everyday lives.
