My Philosophy About Free Yoga Classes

hands

I provide my yoga classes for free because I believe everyone who wants to practice should be able to practice yoga regardless of their financial circumstances. I do this in the hopes that those who can afford to donate to the class will. Your donations allow me to meet all my expenses and to keep the classes going on a purely donation basis.

i am  permitted by Parks and Recreation of Sarasota County to teach my yoga classes but for this privilege I am charged a sizable beach access fee that I must pay to the them each month. These fees must be payed even if the classes have to be cancelled due to bad weather. There are also many other fees and expenses related to the teaching  of my yoga classes.

It is for this reason that I very much appreciate your help and your giving what you can when you can. With deep gratitude I thank you for your donations.

  1. I was in Siesta Key last week and had an amazing time. A huge hi-light to my trip was being a part of Ava’s morning yoga. Starting the day out on the beach, being at one with yourself and nature, is uncompariable. I have been to yoga classes before and this was by far the most enjoyable experience. Ava is a great teacher who is able to help people at all levels. I learned about the sand, healing energy, and made good connections. Every time I visit I will always be looking forward to joining in Ava’s class. Now that I am home, looking back at my time spent there Ava’s class still reduces stress. I mentally captured the moment I spent doing something for myself in the most beautiful place… yoga on the beach was definitely a treasured moment for me.

      • Ava,

        I will be in Siesta Key in Sept. wondering do you still have your yoga class on the beach? If so, what time will it start? I did your yoga class a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it! You are awesome!
        Hope to see you!
