Beach Yoga  – my new favourite activity

“Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.”
― Hermann Broch

I’ve come to understand that I will always need to be close to the sea. You see, the ocean has a magnetic attraction pull and I am drawn to its untamed waters everyday – even if it’s just taking in the view as I leave or return to my flat. So it’s no surprise that attending yoga on the beach, with a Big Blue backdrop is right up my street.

This weekend my brother Mike, a friend Siviwe and I joined Sharni‘s monthly initiative called Share The Sunshine – Secret Sunday Sessions:

“Once a month, on a Sunday, in a secret location, we are sharing the sunshine.
What this means is that Follow the Sun is offering a donation based yoga class and all the profits will go to the Earthchild Project and their ‘Share the Love of Yoga’ fundraising campaign.
This campaign sponsors the Earthchildren weekly yoga classes for one year! Read more here.”

There’s something so relaxing and rejuvenating about being in a yoga pose, inhaling and exhaling the fresh sea breeze either staring up at the blue sky and clouds in a backbend or  being in downward dog listening to the crashing waves.

Despite doing yoga and contributing to a great cause, the morning session was exactly what my body, mind and soul was craving. A great way to detox, stretch and destress before the work week ahead. A real soulful Sunday – I coined the Instagram #hashtag during my post-yoga phone snapshots while painting on my balcony followed by cooking a healthy Thai stir-fry dinner to end off the weekend.

Sharni’s Secret Sunday Session on Clifton 1st beach has also made me extremely excited for the Eat, Play, Yoga trip to Bali at the end of June. As a settled nomad, I’ve stayed in one country for the longest period of time in years so my itchy feet need a scratch. And what better place to go than on a yoga trip with your Mum and other like-minded Cape Town yogi women, than Ubud and Nusa Lembongan tropical island in Bali. In just over three months, we will be doing just that. I know I’ve said it before – I really cannot wait!!!
