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.
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?

YBTS is welcoming Sarah Jacobs ( Acupuncture), Maria Hampvent ( Coaching and Leadership), Jena Eros (Ortho Bionomy), Stefanie Satomi Sakata ( Acupuncture and Community Acupuncture), who will be expanding their practices here on 15th September. Visit our website for details. All our Drop-In Yoga, Registered Class Series, Movement, Therapeutic classes, Kirtan, programs, events and workshops will now be held in the larger Moon Studio. Some of the times of the classes will change to accommodate the shift and the expanding Fall Schedule. The turnover between classes will be shorter. So we ask for quiet between classes, coming and going. Please enjoy your connections outside before or after class. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this important transition.
