MAUI OCEANFRONT YOGA CLASSES
OCEANFRONT PUBLIC YOGA CLASS:
Schedule: Now taking reservations for April in person yoga. Email your request after you have completely read the instructions and information on this page.
April 2021 schedule: Every Sunday and Thursday at 8:00 am. Class fee is $15 cash only. Bring your own mat or two towels.
At this time, reservations are only taken by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please do not arrive without a confirmed reservation. Book at least a week ahead of time as there is a class limit. Leave a contact number when requesting a reservation.
Before making your oceanfront yoga reservation, please know that it is mandatory to comply with the following safety measures:
Masks are mandatory, please wear your mask before entering The Kamaole Nalu property. Masks can only be taken off while on your mat.
Remain 6 feet away from people at all times.
A 48 hour cancellation notice is required. Cancellations in less than 48 hours are still required to pay class fee.
Bring your own yoga mat. I have a few more sanitized used travel yoga mats for sale for $5 each or a new mat for $10. (email ahead if you would like to purchase). Towels can be used as well. I recommend two towels as the grass area can be wet from irrigation.
To allow for more ease and variations, I highly suggest bringing blocks and a strap. (I have straps for sale at $5 each)
Oceanfront yoga is only outside so the class is weather permitting. However, Kihei, has beautiful weather so there are not a lot of cancellations.
Each time you come to class you will be required to sign a disclosure and release document.
OCEANFRONT YOGA LOCATION: AT THE KAMAOLE NALU RESORT (2450 S. KIHEI RD., MEET AT SHORELINE). PARKING IS FOR KAMAOLE GUESTS ONLY. PLEASE PARK ON STREET IF YOU ARE NOT A GUEST OF THE KAMAOLE NALU.
DIRECTIONS TO CLASS:
Oceanfront Yoga by Johanna Waters, at The Kamaole Nalu Resort, 2450 S. Kihei Rd.
Meet at shoreline, park on the street or the parking lot across from Kamaole Nalu (please do not park at the Kamaole Nalu parking lot), walk thru parking lot, follow concrete walkway, pass elevator, head towards ocean. We meet on the grass in front of the ocean.
The Mission of Oceanfront Yoga is to provide you with an authentic yoga experience in a beautiful setting to prepare you for your day of adventure, work or play. Johannas’ oceanfront yoga classes are a comprehensive, gentle to moderate level practice that uses a combination of asana (posture), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation for a healthy way of living.
Since yoga is an empowering act of self care, Johanna encourages you to modify or amplify your practice depending on your individual needs. This class is more about moving and feeling the body to increase strength, flexibility, range of motion and anatomical fluency; as opposed to pushing too much to get into a non- beneficial shape or motion. Johanna inspires you to increase physical boundaries but at the same time to not confine yourself to physical achievements.
Her approach to yoga is a holistic form of body and breath connection in a supportive setting that relaxes the mind.
