1/31/22 Incredibly beautiful class today. Perfect

Standard

It was very cold when I arrived on the beach and I thought very few would show up to class if any but I was happy to see 8 people show up. The skies were clear and there was no wind so the air warmed upi quickly and then I lost track of time. The warmth of the sun felt so good that when I finally looked at my watch we had gone 30 mins over time. We ended up doing a 2 hour class the 5 ladies that stayed with me also did not feel time passing. It is the best possible feeling when you are in the zone and nothing can rouse you out of it. Normally my classes are 90 min. long. But occasionally it feels so good as all the conditions ate so perfect i becomes very hard to end. Classes held Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday. ( to 10:30 am. Please bring drinking watcer and exact change of $10 per person.

See you all on Wednesday when it will be warmer.

1/29/22 Sat. Class Cancelled Due To high Winds

Standard

In retrospect this month has been mostly good weather for our yoga classes. I have had to cancel a handful of classes due to bad weather but for the most part the days have been beautiful. Unfortunately I have to cancel class today because of a combination of high winds and cold temperatures. Hopefully Monday will be better. Hoping February will bring us good weather for our classes.
