Yoga at the Beach

A HUGE thank you to everyone that attended yesterday’s Yoga at the Beach in Exmouth.  We were blessed with a sunny and warm morning.

Outdoor classes can add a different dimension to our practice, enable us to make deeper connections and encourage us to be very present.  Being outside can intensify our yoga experience and the sounds, fresh air and sensations can guide us to deepen our awareness and to connect more fully.

I love to witness the change in students, the deeper connections, the heart opening, the pure joy and the harmony.

It was an amazing way to start the day and hopefully we’ll plan a few more yoga sessions at the beach.

We raised £82 for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, a campaign under the International Marine Mammal Project at the non-profit Earth Island Institute. The Dolphin Project aims to stop dolphin slaughter and exploitation around the world.  This work has been chronicled in films such as A Fall From Freedom, the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove, and in the Animal Planet mini-series Blood Dolphin$.

Campaigns for dolphin protection are currently underway in a variety of locations around the globe, including the Solomon Islands, Indonesia, Egypt, and Singapore.

It seemed fitting to raise funds to support this vitual project as we were at the beach.
