    • Hi Shawn
      Yes if you look on the front page of this website you will see a video guide on the right side bar. This video will show exactly where the class is conducted. Class is held between the green and blue lifeguard stands. Please bring drinking water and the fee of $ 10 per person in cash. Class begins at 9:00 am and there is no reservation requirement.
      Thank you.

  1. You have absolutely no overhead since you are using County property to hold your classes. You do not provide water or a yoga mat. How do you justify a $10 charge. If 30 people attended you are taking more per hour than a family physician with over 10+ years of education and massive overheads. Please comment

    • Goodness Mary why do you assume it’s free to me because it is not. You may check if you like but I have to pay a permit fee to the county. If this were not the case then as you say every yoga teacher would be teaching dozens of classes all over the public beach. This is why they impose a permit fee for which you need the highest yoga credentials and a comprehensive insurance policy which included the county. Just because I teach on the beach does not me that I am not a professional.

    • I still cant believe that you would make such an accusation without consulting me or the county first. Once more, unlike renting a studio in which to teach, my rental of the space on the beach is obviously outdoors where weather forces me to cancel my classes frequently. The county does not compensate me for. these cancelled classesI and during the summer half the classes are empty or with one or two people in them because it’s too hot to practice yet I have to pay the same fee.
      Please come down to the beach and let me walk you over to the P&R offices if you don’t believe me.
      Now you respond please hopefully with an apology.
