$10. Our intention Aqua is to keep yoga affordable and sustainable. We offer classes at $10 per person and provide yoga mats if needed. All classes are 75 minutes. Cash only. All proceeds go to the teacher.
Drawing on a combination of yoga styles, these well-rounded classes balance, stretch and strengthen the body with a strong emphasis on breath and instruction of alignment. All classes are led with music and aroma therapy. Practice led by Sarah Pascual.
Why yoga helps your surfing:
First, yoga works on the physical level to improve your strength, flexibility, stamina, balance and coordination. That means you'll be able to surf longer, with more energy and endurance. No more cutting a session short because of fatigue or aches and pains.
Second, yoga works on the mental level to help you develop focus and concentration, absolutely essential for performing well on the waves. You'll learn to tune out distractions -- even in a crowded lineup -- and enjoy your own special relationship with the ocean.
Third, yoga works on an emotional level to help you stay calm and relaxed, focused and free -- even in the most demanding situations! That means you can paddle through that clean-up set and face heavy surf feeling calm and confident. You'll survive any wipeouts much more easily.
Finally, yoga works on a spiritual level to help you deepen your connection to nature! As surfers, we thrive on the energy of the ocean. We feel totally alive when we experience the thrill of being one with creation. Yoga helps you remain present and aware so you deepen that experience.
