These classes will be open to all levels and there is no charge to attend-- just bring yourself, your mat, water and anything else you might need for your practice."
8.30am-9.30am with Betsy - "Join us on the Cabo Beach at 8:30 am for a summer solstice- inspired flow - good music, great community, and a refreshing morning yoga practice.
12pm-1pm with Kim - "Enjoy a movement-based vinyasa flow on the lawn at the Alexander Black house before heading down to the festival."
5.30pm-6.30pm with Nicole - "Join us for 5Elements Earth Flow at the Alexander Black house lawn. This is a grounding, hip-opening practice, which emphasizes stability and strength through a steady and strong flowing sequence. Strength is cultivated though a series of slow salutations and standing and supine hip-opening postures. 5elements Earth Flow is for all levels of students that wish to move through a slow, deep vinyasa practice; completing with a restorative savasana."
