Yoga on the Beach (and a note about Pre-natal yoga)

Melissa Booker of Becalmed Yoga is offering donation-based Sunset Beach Yoga classes Thursdays 5:30pm-~6:45pm June 14th through September on Coronado Beach adjacent to dog beach. Meet at the northwest beach entrance, near the Navy Base (where the fire rings and bathroom are), off Ocean Blvd. We usually practice to the side of the lifeguard tower.

The classes are an eclectic asana (posture) and pranayama (breath work) practice geared toward the beach atmosphere and including poses in the shallow water. Open to all levels that can practice without the need for a wall or props. Bring a towel, a water bottle, clothing layers, and sunscreen.

Why do yoga on the beach? As Melissa says "Because yoga on the beach is amazing… Because your breath is a wave… Because practice outdoors feeds an intrinsic need… Because sun, sand, and water dissolve resistance, ego, boundaries, and level the PLAYING field"
