As Fire Mountain residents we have a great opportunity to enjoy yoga in a fun and inviting local studio. You can’t get any closer to home than Yoga Oceanside, located at 1830 Oceanside Boulevard in the Boney’s shopping center. Opened earlier this year, this earth-friendly space is 100% dedicated to the practice of Yoga.
With a variety of classes offered seven days a week, there’s something for all levels. I personally have tried many of the classes with nearly all the instructors and while each has their own unique style, I’ve never been disappointed by a class. The best part about this studio is their welcoming attitude and the sense of community that is encouraged.
If you’ve always wanted to give Yoga a try, October’s a great time. In addition to their Yoga Delight and Yin Yoga classes that are great for all levels, this month Yoga Oceanside has two $5 community classes offered Tuesdays at 5:30-6:45 p.m. and Fridays 10:30-11:45 a.m. These community classes feature a different emphasis but all levels are encouraged to attend. And since the single class drop in price is $14, for just five bucks this is a great chance to get on a mat and give it a shot.
Other new student offers include a two-week unlimited yoga special for just $25. This is a great option if you have some free time on your hands and really want to try out the class varieties. Click here for a list of current classes and an online schedule.
Still not convinced? Want to start with the basics? How about a free Introduction to Hatha Yoga class? On October 17 from noon to 1:15 p.m. instructor Marjorie Old will walk newbies through some of the fundamentals of yoga. This special class will include what to bring, what you can expect, and some basic poses.
Yoga Oceanside is always offering unique workshops and events. In fact, this month they’re hosting two live music events. For more fun in October click here.
Yoga might not be for everyone, but it has become a wonderful asset to my life and I have Yoga Oceanside to thank. There’s nothing pretentious or snobby about this studio, just a down to earth group of instructors who love what they do and genuinely want to share its benefits with their students. Hopefully these new student opportunities will encourage some of our friends and neighbors on Fire Mountain to try it out and join the growing community at Yoga Oceanside.
