My heart is still beating fast with happiness after last weekend’s wonderful yoga weekend retreat at Little Renaissance. Six wonderful yogis attended our Yoga on the Beach Retreat! How can I describe the weekend? Other than having been treated to beautiful Washington coastal summer weather, we had a really wonderfully diverse group. It was so much fun to see friendships forge over the weekend.
marykay described the retreat as a time for “blessed togetherness” and said she felt “rejuvenated” and that she found “a renewed zest for healthy choices and nurturing new friendships.”
Genevieve Phillips wrote, “This weekend inspired the creative divine spirit within on so many levels.”
I have so many photos to post on this blog. I believe these photos capture the wonderful spirit of this retreat!
On Saturday morning, we woke up to sunshine. We took my set of beach mats out and did our early morning yoga practice outside! I will never forget our yoga session on the beach! The loud surf competed with my voice as I guided the group in the yoga practice. The air was delicious, the sand soft on our knees and easy on our feet. The seagulls and the waves became our meditative music! We were lucky to have Rick take these photos of us doing yoga on the beach!
There were thousands of sandpipers on the beach and they gave us the best flying air show ever. The put the Blue Angels to shame! Nothing compares to their speed, precision, skill, intuition, sensitivity, and artistry in flying in perfect unison by the thousands. They flew in circles around us., one group converging on another, overlapping, and coming out in perfect formation. The sandpipers were fascinating and captured our full attention.

give notice the
Zipped to the curve of the tide
they scurry to and fro
with nervous little steps
and poke busy beaks
in the sand for supper
But at the first
they take flight in a flash
no staying for a bath
