Aloha from Ashley: Surfers of all ages have expressed interest in practicing Yoga but they are apprehensive about joining a Yoga session because they think they “aren’t good at Yoga” or they are “not flexible.” I’m inspired to help evolve this way of thinking. Several pro Surfers are devoted Yogis: Gerry Lopez, Kelly Slater, and many others. Taking inspiration from legendary Gerry Lopez who’s been practicing yoga for 40+ years and surfing for 55 years, he believes surfing and Yoga are one and the same and the benefits that practicing Yoga can have on surfing are far reaching. Discovering Yoga was a life-changing event for him. He describes how the longterm quest as a surfer is inspired by an addiction to the glide and how everything becomes about riding that next wave to recapture the sensation – a sensation that is like flying on the wings of the wind – a feeling of emancipated freedom that unlocks a door to your heart, your soul – like being in the presence of something divine and and that leaves one buzzing. While surfing and practicing Yoga aim to tap into the same energy force and feelings, the Hawaiians have been accessing it through surfing and Yogis have been accessing it through breath. Gerry describes Yoga as being a privilege – a responsibility to our minds, bodies, and spirit. I’m creating a unique sequence and experience for the surfing community on the East End where surfers can feel comfortable practicing Yoga together.
