Mon. 18/22 Yoga Class Review.


Over 30 members of a Canadian Paddle Boat Club attended Monday’s Yoga class & I must say this group was so willing & cooperative. They behaves beautifully, focusing their full attention on my instructions & uncomplainingly participating for the entire 90 min. class, regardless of the challenges the poses and movements may have presented to them. It was a pleasure to teach such a lovely group of young people. I love teaching such large classes as the collective energy inspires and motivates me. This time of year when the summer temperatures can be be quite hot, even early in the morning, fewer people attend which gives me the opportunity to take the poses to a very deep level both physically & spiritually. So for me large classes are very motivating but our smaller Summer classes can be inspirational on deeper healing levels, and this with the added advantage of a warm ocean just steps away in which you can bath & swim to your hearts content after class is worth it’s weight in gold. Thank you every one who attended my Monday class I enjoyed teaching it very much. Hope to see everyone on Wednesday 20/22 at 8:30 am.

  1. Good evening Ava,

    Myself and 5 sorority sisters will be there in Nov. Do you still offer beach yoga at that time or is it too chilly? I’m open to suggestions for us to be together in some type of exercise, yoga, dance, etc. Thx for any help.


    • Hi Susan. Thank you for your inquiry. Yes I teach all year round and November is typically the best weather for our outdoor yoga classes. So I hope to see you then.
