MAUI OCEANFRONT YOGA CLASSES
OCEANFRONT PUBLIC YOGA CLASS:
The Mission of Oceanfront Yoga is to provide you with an authentic yoga experience in a spectacular setting to prepare you for your day of adventure, work or play. Johanna’s oceanfront yoga classes are 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 selfcare, 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.
