If you have ever wanted to combine a love of Yoga with your love of being on the ocean with your love of pure childish fun...well...your chance is finally here.
Ocean Breath Yoga is dancing with inner child joy to be pairing up with Granville Islands very own Pirate Adventures to take you on an evening of smile making, balance shaking, sunset gazing yoga fun.
Drop the notion that you need a studio and a mat to be able to do yoga. Climb aboard the Black Spirit and as the ropes free us from the dock, let your cares and worries do the same. Untie the knots and let yourself drift on the current of your breath.
Our captain will guide us off into False Creek while we find our center and balance. Your job aboard this pirate ship will be to find the treasure buried deep within your own heart. You may have to do battle with your own mind and stories of how you should behave at your age. But if you trust your treasure map and follow it's clues you may just find that no mutiny will be needed because you will be sailing safely into harbour knowing everything you need awaits when you return to shore.
The cruise itself will be 1.5 hours and the course will be determined by the captain. If the weather is good we may find ourselves leaving the "safety" of False Creek for open waters of English Bay. We will meet at the Pirate Adventures just around the corner from the studio at 6:30 pm. As a group we will proceed to the ship for a 7:00 pm departure. Once aboard, the Yoga journey will continue. Practice will eventually blend into time to enjoy a few treats, good company and the freshness of the ocean air.
