How did I come to teach yoga in Ocean City Maryland? As a child our family vacations in Ocean City, Md were for two weeks with extended family. And then as an adult for many years, I enjoyed supporting my sons (who are now adults), playing the sports they loved. However, we were fortunate to be able to stay at my parents’ place for quick Ocean City, Maryland getaways during this time. In 2017, after I completed my 300 hour certificate with YogaWorks, my husband and I happily moved with our toddler daughter (17 year gap from the boys) to live in Berlin, MD the great neighbor to Ocean City right across the bay.

Year round, I am also available to teach private classes, like bachelorette parties or girls/guys weekends and can come to your location/beach. Look for backyard yoga classes in the fall.

What to expect with Yoga on the Beach
No prior Yoga experience is necessary.
We realize that many of our students are vacationing and therefore provide the mats and water for each class. In the event that the class is large, it is always best to bring a beach towel with you just in case. Be sure to bring your sunglasses with you as even on overcast days you will find yourself squinting a lot. Wear clothing you are comfortable in, possibly layers depending on the weather. Clothes do not have to be fitted, just be sure you are comfortable with the risk of exposure. Ie, the bottom of your shirt falls towards your head in forward fold (tuck it in), the neck drops away from your chest in plank. Since the classes are outdoors and we are at the mercy of the weather, you will be notified up to an hour in advance at the latest if class needs to be canceled. On the best days, the sun is warming, the breeze is cooling, and the sound of ocean waves is calming.
What to expect with Yoga on a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)
No prior Yoga or Paddleboard experience is needed.
Equipment (Paddleboard and Paddle) is provided with a tutorial before we start. We will paddle to a location on the bay for the yoga class so allow for about an hour and a half for the total class (paddling and yoga). The biggest concern most students have is falling in the water. It is highly probable that you can participate in the class fully without falling in. Also, options are offered so that students can do what is comfortable within their own experience and risk comfort. Typically those that fall in, voluntarily choose a pose or option with a higher risk of falling in based on their own experience and risk acceptance. And please know that I am trained in water rescue specific to paddleboards in addition to having my first aid certification. Since the equipment is rented, decisions to cancel class due to inclement weather must be made by 10pm the prior night for early morning classes and an hour in advance for late morning or later classes.
Information coming for retreats in 2019.
