YBTS peoples choice award2022

A great Honour

Thanks again to our community in Roberts Creek, the Sunshine Coast and beyond for voting us the Favourite Yoga Studio for the second year in a row. It is a great honour to be recognized as a shining light in our corner of this planet.

We at Yoga by the Sea, have been blessed with 16 +  years in this growing community and are in the company of many brilliant, dedicated Yoga and Pilates mentors and guides who have been consistently present over the last two decades right alongside us.

Kalijo, Om Sweet Om, Coast Flow and several individual teachers, who teach out of community centers, senior centers, schools, hospitals, gyms, via zoom, private home studios, and halls.

It’s an honor to support our community as a beacon. We are all equally shining the light of health and wellness through connection to the Body, and the vital life-force that animates us, and effects every experience of Life.

Special thanks to the Coast Reporter for organizing the event.

When one is acknowledged, we are all acknowledged.

With Love always, 

Hasu and all your friends at Yoga by the Sea.

Peace comes from Within and only happens Now

Welcome October

Each Month we will bring attention to a Chakra ( Energy Center) that correlates to a Nerve Plexus along the main Energy and Nerve channel, the Shushumna  or Spinal column.  To cultivate and know Balance, Integration, Harmony and Bliss. As with Intentions, it is planting a Seed, what you want in the end must be present in the beginning.

This month we begin with the Root Chakra located at the base of  the Spine.

This center is about Groundedness, foundation and security. It reflects the relationship we have to our survival, shelter, food, water, sleep, sustenance, and money.

How do we tend to our Home, the one we embody and the shelter we live in?

Some Physical symptoms of an imbalance:

How to return balance?

Scan through your relationships to survival, shelter, food, water, sleep, sustenance, and money, and pick one area that you would like to focus on this month to bring a greater sense of balance and integration.

Maybe placing some attention and give some love to the home, healthy nourishment, sleep patterns, exercise, or finances. 

Keep note of what you notice so you can see the shifts that are happening for you.

Love, Hasu and all your friends at Yoga by the Sea
