Going With the Flow

Surf Day

Ever wanted to learn how to surf? It’s never too late to try. My own parents had their first surf lesson in Bali at the age of 65 years old! If they can do it, so can you!

Come spend a day in the company of other Bay Area yogis as we dive into the experience of beginner’s mind together, in a supportive community. We will spend time practicing yoga on the beach, preparing mentally and emotionally for your surf lesson, learning to surf with some of the Bay Area’s best surf instructors, playing some get-to-know-you games, and having some good, clean fun in the sand, sea and sun. This day will weave together three of my favorite things: beach yoga, surfing, and good friends! I hope you’ll consider joining me for the Yoga & Surf Play Day in Santa Cruz with my good friend - yoga teacher, Qi Gong instructor, surfer and lover of life - Kristen Lansdale!
