Yoga on an 11 ft Paddle Board in calm, warm water is a pleasure. Our class is at 7:00 pm, because earlier, hundreds of people are in the water. From 7:00 pm, we have the lagoon fronting our location in the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa Hotel to ourselves. The hotels provide ambient light; just enough.
Meet 15 minutes prior, at 6:45 pm, gather up boards, anchors, and dry bags, and head out to the water across the street.
We set up close to the lagoon wall, about 70 ft from the beach, in about 3 ft deep water. No rocks. Falling is fine; you just get wet. Class begins with sitting poses, and progresses into a certain amount of down dog and with standing poses, as group tolerance allows.
The stars are above, we are working while centering ourselves on a moving surface, and the group energy is beautiful.

What to Bring: As little as possible. Pay on line so you don’t need your wallet. Phones, keys, wallet, can safely be tied to a dry bag on your board. Slippers too. Even a small towel. Large towels we leave on the beach; so far so good! They have been there when we returned.
The water is shallow, so your friends can wade out and take photos. If they try to photograph from the beach, they’ll need a telescopic lens. We have enough ambient light from class, but we’re too far out and its too dim for normal photography. I’m using a Go Pro 8 to photo and video record the class, for those who wish. If still shots or photos are requested, those can be provided free of charge.
Class size is limited to six people, so it will always be a pleasant, intimate group.
