  1. I attended my first ever yoga class Monday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though I did not known the moves I found it east to follow and was not embarrassed by my lack of ability. I plan on attending as often as I can while here on vacation this month.

  2. Thank you for attending and I do hope you keep coming. Visit my site in the future I have great plans for it including Yoga TV where I will begin posting the video pose of the day and more.

  3. Ava,

    I attend your yoga classes on the beach and I am planning to attend the ones at Turtle Beach. I will pay you cash before the 14th of Nov. for those sessions, if that’s okay. I enjoy your classes very much and will be writing a testimonial for you to use in whatever way would help you continue the important work you do.

    Thank you,

    Mary Dickinson

  5. Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m inspired! Very useful information particularly the closing part 🙂 I care for such info a lot. I used to be looking for this particular information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.

  6. I attended Ava’s yoga class for the first time yesterday. It was wonderful! I’m a newbie to yoga. I’ve only been at it for 6 months. I know the moves and Ava is a pro. She’s very kind, sincere and enthusiastic. I will be there at least 3X every week. Thank you Ava for giving us the opportunity to do yoga in such a beautiful environment–Siesta Key Beach!

    • Yes, I teach Hatha yoga a more gentle slow style of yoga. As long as you modify those poses that are hard for you then you will be fine.
      See you soon.
      Ava

  8. Hello! My family and I are renting a condo in Siesta Key for a week at the beginning of August and I just can’t wait to attend your classes. I live in Quebec so yoga on the beach will definitely be my most pleasant yoga experience ever! I’m thrilled! See you on August 6, 8 and 10! And thanks for giving us this wonderful opportunity!

  9. Hello, My family is also renting a condo in Siesta Key starting August 24th. Looking forward to seeing you. Namaste, Laura

  10. I am so looking forward to your yoga class on the beach when I visit in November. Is there a fee schedule or by donations? If donations, what is the suggested amount?
    Thanks,
    Kris

    • Please take note that if you are coming in November I will not be teaching on Siesta Key beach from the 5th to the 12th due to the Sand Festival. I will be teaching the classes scheduled for that period on Turtle beach which is at the far north end of Siesta beach.
      And donations are of any amount peaple leave what they can.
      Ava

      Ava

  12. Genuinely great blog! Have you got any type of methods for ambitious freelance writers? I hope to acquire started out on my own, private site before extended however I am just comparatively misplaced on every single point.

  13. Can you lead a meditation class at my place of work. And is so what would be the cost? I know yoga is a form of meditation, but if they need more information on your certification for meditation what who I tell them? Please email me at address provides below.

  14. Hi Ava coming to Siesta Key on 6th May from UK . Do we need to book your classes or do we just turn up on the day?

    • It has been a very arduous and long expensive ordeal to final come to the conclusion that it seems to be impossible to achieve. the conditions are too severe for any equipment and the uploading of the videos has also presented problems. I have taken the opportunity to change over my website to word press but again with some negative unexpected consequences. I am though continuing to work on my site and maybe with the help of a friend who has more knowledge about these things something good will come of it all I will keep you posted.

  15. Hi Ava,
    I was going to be in Siesta Key the week of October 14th. I see the schedule says summer yoga schedule. I was just wondering if the days or times change for the fall? I am looking forward to coming to some classes during my week in town!

  16. I will be in Siesta Key next week and wanted to confirm the Winter schedule was accurate….mon, wed, Fri, sat from 9-10:30? Looking forward to it!

    • Yes the you have the schedule right but remember we will be at beach access number 7 for from the 9th of Nov to the 18th of Nov. This access is just a little ways down from where we are normally hold the classes on the main beach. SEE YOU SOON.
      AVA

  17. Family will be in siesta key Nov 27, 2013 through Dec 1, 2013. Are classes being taught through these dates? Where on the beach are classes held?
    Thanks

      Ava

  18. went looking for the class this morning around 9:15 and didn’t seem to be anything there. Was there a class this am and if so, where?

    • Sorry I was there until about 5 after telling everyone that class was cancelled because I got food poisoning a couple of days ago and I still feel very drained of energy. I should be ok to teach tomorrow.
      Ava

      • Sorry you were ill. I hope you reported your food poisoning, My daughter had a bad case of food poisoning last week also after visiting the Key.. If you happened to eat at the same place it would be good to report it. She was VERY sick as it sounds like you were too!

  19. I am planning on bringing my friend who will down from Maine next week on Wednesday and just wanted to make sure you were still going to be on the winter scedule. 9am still?

      • What is a suggested donation and is the schedule the same for? spring as winter

        Sent from my Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Smartphone

      • There is no suggested donation amount because those who can afford to donate, donate more. and those who can’t, donate less. Winter we start the class at 9:00 am and in the summer which begins June 1 we start at 8:00 am.
        Thank you
        Ava

    • Hi
      There is no spring schedule. We move from 9:00 am start time which has been in place since last October to 8:00 am start time which start June 1 and lasts all summer.
      Ava

    • The classes are held where they always been held which is by the green life guard stand at the main public beach at Siesta Key. I and a hundred or so of my students were there at 9:00 am on Monday and today Wednesday mornings as we are every week. Strange that you could not find it.
      Ava

  20. I will be visiting Siesta Key Saturday for a week and would love to do yoga on the beach. Is this class still ongoing?

    Thanks!

  21. Hi!! My name is Lindsey and I recently relocated to Siesta Key from Philadelphia.

    I am very interested in joining this class!! I’ve been practicing bikram for awhile (not religiously and haven’t been in a couple months).

    Please email me with some additional information. For example: clothing recommendations, mats, and costs.

    I look forward to hearing from you and hope to join a class ASAP.

    Have a great night!

    Lindsey

  22. I am a interested in yoga. I am 62 & athletic. X college football player. Wanting to keep & improve my flexibility

    • I am still not sure because I need to go down to the beach tomorrow morning and check out the scene, Some years it is so crowded already that it is impossible. This is why I can’t say. But perhaps if you do not want to risk it being cancelled you should not come down to the beach at all.
      I am so sorry but its sometimes crazy on the 4 of July.
      Ava

    • I am not sure but chances are no. Its often very busy even as early as 8:00 am but I will go down and see the conditions. I want to teach but the conditions will dictate what happens sme years were not as bad as others. I love to teacch so I try to when possible. But you don’t need to gamble if you don’t want to. See you Saturday for sure.
      Ava

  23. Hi Ava Trudy Today 12.29.2014 I am was with my gilfriend Su on Siesta beatch on yoga just I wanted to say thank you!! And I will be happy to go back again.

  24. Ava, thank you for your kind attentiveness. Just as we were finishing the opening meditative part today, an aircraft began to be heard in the distance, (habitually I will try to guess the plane by its sound) but I felt that what your were bringing forward in body and thought had its immediate place and just as I resolved not to be distracted and to remain with the class it seemed you rewarded me with ‘inhale, lookup!’ as the aircraft passed above me.
    Gentle know gentle

  25. Hi!
    I will be seeing you during my Spring Break with my friend. We are in highchool and plan on attending this class every morning… this is exactly what we were looking for; a free class that we can come to to make us feel refreshed after our long nights.
    So overly joyed to meet you Ava!

    Allie 🙂

  26. I attended this class about two months ago during my visit and will be planning on attending next week when we are in town! Thank you! Looking forward to it!

  27. I’ll be staying on a hotel on the beach from tomorrow, 7/3 through Tuesday, 7/6. I see in previous comments from previous years, 7/4 classes are often cancelled due to the beach being too crowded. Is still the case this year for this Saturday? Will you otherwise be teaching on Monday, 7/5 at 8? I’d love to join in!!

    • Yea I am going to cancell this saturday’s class due to the mayhem going on on the beach. But I will teach this Friday and the coming Monday.
      Thank you for asking.
      Ava

  28. Ava, can’t wait to practice with you on Wed. Coming from Des Moines for my annual trip to Siesta Keys and joining you on the beautiful beach for yoga is always one of my highlights. I am Miriam and I will introduce myself again when I am there at 8. I have some special prayers/thoughts to put in the basket so I look forward to the peace of spending time with you again.

  29. Hi there, is there a specific donation amount that is expected? We were thinking of coming out for the first time and want to be sure ee can afford it. Thanks

    • Please go to the main beach where you will see all the signs and parking. Siesta Key pubic beach class begins at 9:00 am and bring a towel water and classs is by a suggested donation of 5 dollar per person. Thank you
      Ava

      • I will be in for Spring break mid-March! Will classes be at 9 and 1030 on the usual days then? Thank you so much!

      • I have it at ten now becauseof the cold weather. I hope by midmarch it will be warm enough to take back to 9:00 am start time. I always post the correct schedule, please check before you come.

  30. Was class cancelled on Monday 3/21? Did not see anyone there. Is it cancelled when it is chillier?
    Thanks, Ava. Love your classes!!!!

    • Yes when the winds are high and the temperatureis57 degrees it is not condusive to stretching the body. I believe that may have been the the last of the cold weather though and we will be able to have class every day it is scheduled now. Thank you for your patience with the outdoor problems that do arise.
      Ava

  31. Is there yoga class on Wednesday Feb 1 2017 ?Am from out of town and would love to join? If so whwhen and where are you located? Do I need a mat or is a towel enough? Thank you for your help.

    • YES IT SHOULD BE A LITTLE WARMER ON WEDNESDAY TO TEACH. MY SITE GIVES YOU ALL THE DETAILS ABOUT THE CLASS, ITS LOCATION AND SO FORTH. PRAY FOR WARM WEATHER AND THEN I WILL SEE YOU ON WEDNESDAY.
      AVA

  32. Hi Ava,
    Would my 9 year old be able to participate with me? She has practiced yoga before, but we are both beginners. Thanks!

    • Your daughter may of course try the class but just to let you know it is not designed for children and most children find it too long, too serious, or too boring. But its up to you and beginner are more than welcome.
      See you soon.
      Ava

  33. I read in a local paper that your classes are from 10-11:30am, but your website states 9 -10:30am.
    This Monday, Feb 27, does it begin at 9 or 10 am? Thanks!

  34. Ava I just want to double check that there is a yoga class tomorrow am march 20. I was here around the beginning of January and there was not a class being held when I arrived!
    Thank you!
    Ruth

  35. Hi Ava
    I have attended your class today and found it really interesting. Though i had to leave before class ended, i wanted to ask you if there is a class for prenatal yoga, i am pregnant in my 36th week
    Thanks
    Rania

    • Hello Rania

      I do not know of any prenatal classes in town. That is not to say that there may not be some but I am not aware of any. I am sorry I could not help you and congratulations on your baby.
      Love and Joy
      Ava

    • Well its 8:00 am and it raining with the radar showing more rain. I can only conclude that it will probably be raining at 9:00 am when class is to begin. But outdoor yoga is difficult sometimes to predicts I go down to the beach by 8:30 and check it out then I evaluate if it seems doable or not. There really is no other way. I am sorry but I can say more probably there will be no class due to rain. Thank you.
      Ava

  36. Hi, I would be interested in attending your class if you still teach in the Sarasota area. Please let me know 🙂

  37. Hi Ava,

    Just confirming that you are having class tomorrow on the beach from 9am-10:30am. Also, where do you meet? Near one of the colored life guard stands? Please let me know where to find you. Thank you!

  38. I am in town visiting my parents and my husband And I are interested in class! Will it be held on Friday April 14th? This says “fall & winter” schedule and I do not see one for spring. Thanks!

      • That is because there is no spring schedule. I only change the time twice a year. So its Winter schedule and Summer schedule. Class is at 9:00 am Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat,
        AVA

    • I do not encourage kids coming to class because it is designed for adults. The class is 90 min. and demands quiet self managed participation. Children generally find the class uninteresting and too long. I hope you understand.
      Ava

    • Yes Emily I will. But the weather has been very wet and I have had to cancel a few classes due to rain. I hope the weather holds out for you. See you son.
      Ava

  39. Hi Ava, looking to try your class for the first time this week. Is the beach fairly quiet and peaceful during this time? I’ve noticed some construction at Crescent beach, hoping Siesta beach is quieter. Let me know if you can!

    • There is always the sound of the racking truck which cant be helped. On Saturdays there are events and it is much more sound usually then. But mostly its nice a quiet. See you soon.
      Ava

  40. My husband and I attended for the first time Monday. We both felt this is exactly what we’ve been looking for. A knowledgeable teacher, excellent instruction, great connection with new students to yoga, and a pleasure to participate with. We look forward to many more yoga experiences on Siesta Key.
