This weekend, February 25 – 27, there is a new way to relax near the waves with the Cannon Beach Yoga Festival, taught by names such as Alan Finger, Sarah Platt-Finger, Tiffany Cruikshank and Julie Gudmestad.
It begins at 4 p.m. on Friday with the welcome and check-in at the Cannon Beach Chamber Hall.
On Saturday, there is meditation at 7 a.m., Balancing the Chakra Through Yoga at 8:30 a.m., as well as two other classes. 1 p.m. brings Yoga Figure Drawing, taught by David Kinhan. At 1:30 p.m. there is Nada Yoga.
Throughout the day there are more classes, such as Sweat and Samadhi, The Roots of Pranayama: Relaxation and Breath Awareness, and then a community gathering caps off the evening at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday begins at 7 a.m. with meditation again. Then, the classes offered throughout the day include: Tantra: Survival, Sex and Spirit; Backends: Preparation and Practice; Pure Bliss: the Intermingling of Yin and Yang; Yoga Nidra; and Myofascial Release for Yogis, as well as others.
