There's something special about the summer in San Diego; a blaze of color staggered across the sky- oranges, pearly pink and vibrant purples maneuvering their ways above the crown of my head. The air was mild and the sun was fading against my skin with the comforting smell of fresh salt-water sea and the sound of waves crashing. Growing up, summers on the shore were always about watching the most perfect sunset.
It was a warm Wednesday afternoon, I slowly take my time to walk down the beach to admire the lavender kissed sky.
Someone pinch me.
I am teaching YOGA on the beach?
It feels so amazing to share yoga out in nature. Over the past few weeks, I have been dedicated to my yoga practice and I must say that it is finally nice to get my feet wet again. From then on, I decided to chronicle my yoga experience, to not only better my practice but to see myself in a new light, to observe myself grow as a human being.
Teaching gives me that. To observe, to learn , to grow and to better myself. The best part of teaching by the beach is the natural sound of mother earth- birds chirping, waves crashing, tree branch swaying synchronized to my breath. As I transitioned to warrior 2- a very powerful pose I might add, I dig my toes into the sand and bring my gaze to the sun setting into the horizon. I caught a glimpse of the green flash! I let out a big *sigh and truly savored each inhales and exhales. Its a great balance to be teaching yoga on the beach compare to my hectic life in the sky.
I encourage you to visit Carlsbad Village Athletic Club for details on other classes. It's a great group of yoga instructors and volleyball players sharing the same interests on active lifestyle.
Join me next time for Sunset Yoga on the beach. Allow yourself to melt into the earth, shining your heart to the sunset sky.
