I live in one of the most gorgeous places in the world. Easily the most beautiful place I have ever been to. The weather is a perfect 76-80 degrees & no humidity. Breathing in the sea air, (daily!) I am present, alive, energized & spiritually aware.
Last week I began teaching yoga on the beach squished & splashed in the water & sand. Immediately, the kids were present & connected. We used our senses to explore on a meditation walk over beach rocks, up a bluff - at Ponto Beach. At the top there is a viewpoint & a fantastic compass drawing. N, S, W, E are each beautiful - so amazing! Three 10 yr. old girls and 2 NGY Student Teachers...we circled up at the spot where the land meets the sea. We held hands & plaques describing a piece of history & the environment of this California beach. Each plaque was an inspiration during our yoga experience.
Each moment was truly exquisite - especially when we inhaled our arms out & up overhead - there flew a flock of birds over head!
There is nothing like doing yoga at the beach, try it - I promise you'll love it!
