She articulates step-by-step suggestions to engage your attention to the more subtle aspects of physical alignment, sensation, and observation, in order to create a safe, challenging, and engaging practice. Vinyasa Yoga is a style loved by both beginners and advanced students, because it begins with the simplicity of moving and breathing, and the practice can vary to meet the needs of the individual.

Yoga and Surfing
March 18 - 24, 2006
Location:
Sayulita , Mexico
With: Sharon & Jeff Dawson

Sharon and Jeff are a husband and wife team who offer the thrill of surfing combined with the focus of a deep yoga practice. Bring the calm, meditative aspects of yoga to the ocean as you learn to calmly catch and ride the next wave. Likewise, bring the balance you achieved surfing to your most graceful headstand. Learn how these two seemingly different disciplines complement each other and how everything we do can become a meditation, whether on the mat or the board.
Sharon 's yoga class begins with time for quiet reflection to focus on the breath and bring the mind into the present moment. Without judgment or competition, we approach the poses with an open heart and a sense of playfulness. All students are encouraged to work at their appropriate level with more advanced poses encouraged for those who are ready to try.
Finding the proper alignment of the body also helps to align the heart. We conclude with time to rest and enjoy a short meditation. This practice of yoga will leave you feeling refreshed, renewed and invigorated, prepared for a full day of surfing and relaxing on the beach.
Jeff approaches surfing with a similar sense of playfulness and fun. Use the poses you practiced in yoga to help you get up on your board and balance. Bring your meditation to the board, being mindful and alert in watching for the next wave. Use your newfound flexibility and strength to get up to a standing position and enjoy the thrill of riding the waves!
