Autumn carrys more gold in it’s pockets than all of the other seasons. Dearest city dwellers, visitors from around the world, dancers, yogis, adventurers ::
We invite you to this Fall end of season gathering to feel magic in every ounce of your being.
To soak in final days of warm indian summer in SF with us and celebrate life with this community and people we love so much. The beach is our favorite place to take it all in. It’s our favorite part of the city and the core of the community we’ve built here.
You are cordially invited to our Fall celebration as the sun sets over our beautiful Ocean Beach. Join us for an evening of beach yoga (with headphones) and hundreds of your friends. Live DJs, dancing, henna tattooing, sunset watching.
We’ll practice yoga lead by founder Julianne Aiello and DJ Avani, Founder of Ecstatic Dance in the Bay, followed by the magic of hanging together in community to dance, watch the sun set, enjoy tasty veggie eats and experience the magic of the day. All ages, all levels of yoga welcome. Kids + dogs welcome too.
