Stay Centered Through the Winter

For those of you who haven't joined us for yoga and pilates, we encourage you to come hit the mat. We just added four new classes to help the community stay strong and centered through the winter months, including a Pilates for Surfers core strengthening class twice a week and Chocolate Yoga on Wednesday evenings, offering a spicy cacao beverage to comfort you throughout class.

Paradise offers four weekly classes:
  • Mondays 6:30-7:30pm: Pilates for Surfers
  • Wednesdays 6:30-8pm: Chocolate Yoga (cacao beverage included to warm you through class!)
  • Thursdays 8:30-9:30am: Pilates for Surfers
  • Saturdays 8:30-10am: Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Express your gratitude for the gift of yoga by making a $12 donation for each class. However, we are here to serve the community so no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Special Note: Class will be cancelled Saturday Feb. 13 and Monday Feb. 15 in observance of Valentines Day and President's Day.

We look forward to growing together through practice.
