Full Moon Yoga, Meditation and Ceremony Events
Enjoy the meditative qualities of the moon, the wind and the waves at Water Dog Floating Yoga. Calming lights on the deck will guide you during a gentle yoga flow that will include moon salutations in honor of the moon and its energies along with a short meditation, intention setting and Full Moon Ceremony with a special ceremony bag included.
We will hold two events in March: Sunday March 8th and Monday March 9th. In the first class, the moon rises earlier. before dark. In the second class, the moon rises towards the end of class in time for the mediation. Both are magical experiences.

*NEW* Thursday evening deck classes
We are changing it up Thursday evenings and now offering TWO classes! At 6pm we will have Vin Yin & Core. The first part of class in Vinyasa style including flowing movement and core work. The second part of class is Yin which will be a deep stretch where poses are held longer, getting into the connective tissues of the joints, ligaments and even bones.
The second class will be held during susnet at 7:15pm. This will be a Myo-Yin which will fuse together Yin yoga poses and myofacial release techniques using therapy balls. These techniques deep into the myofacial tissues and help remove knots and tension spots. Myo-Yin is a great way to spend a relaxing evening and help you sleep better.
Generally the last Thursday of the month we will be at Nueces Brewing Co. for a special Beer Yoga class!
