We have two locations on Santa Monica Beach. The first one is located next to Lifeguard Tower 26 is right outside of Perry’s Cafe. Enter the address into GPS/UBER/LYFT: 2600 Ocean Front Walk Santa Monica, CA 90405. The second one is located next to Lifeguard Tower 2/Will Rogers border, right outside of Annenburg Community. No, we do not have a physical studio. We practice directly on the sand, steps away from the ocean! It doesn’t get more yoga than this!
There are plenty of parking options available! 2600 Barnard Way is comprised of a huge all-day parking lot ($10-$12/day) on the left side and a smaller short term parking lot ($1/hr, 2 hr max) on the right side. More parking available at Hollister and Barnard Way (2400 Ocean Front Walk, other Perry’s Cafe).
There is street parking available on Barnard Way and Main St. Free street parking is available between Ocean Park Blvd and Rose Ave (Venice) between 2nd and 4th St. DO NOT park in this area after 6 p.m. if you do not have a residential permit!

We are proud partners with Perry’s Cafe and Beach Rentals! Perry’s offers a full-service kitchen, locker rentals, beach and bike rentals, and more! Public bathrooms, showers, and family changing rooms are within close proximity.
We offer large beach towel rentals and yoga mats for $3 each, OR $5 for both mat and towel. Rental fees directly support the washing, drying, transportation, and labor associated with maintaining clean towels/mats. RSVP required for rentals to ensure availability. Please message us ahead of time with the number of towel/mat rentals needed to RSVP. Rentals first come, first serve, and are subject to availability. We cannot guarantee towel/mat availability.
Yoga clothes, athletic gear, swimsuits, etc. Remember, you will be on the beach, and you will get sandy! Bring enough clothes to make sure you are ready for anything! You have the option to get hands and ankles wet to jumping into the ocean to cool down or stay completely dry. Instructors will notify you when going to the water. Please take off any electronics.
Yes, we strongly suggest signing up online. We will not send our instructors to the beach unless students are signed up online. We can only guarantee classes will be held if students are signed up online.
Yes, sign-ups are considered closed two hours prior to the start time. The reason is so we can provide instructors enough time to get to the beach. If you are close to, or beyond the cutoff, please message us ASAP! We will let you know if students are signed up for class.
We accept walk-ins on Saturday & Sunday mornings from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. We will not turn down any walk-ins for other classes. As previously mentioned, no sign-ups, no class, therefore we cannot guarantee walk-ins for all other classes.
Yes! We offer corporate wellness programs, on-site/off-site yoga and meditation, team building, integrate corporate goals and initiatives, discounted memberships, private beach yoga for executives, and more! Message us today to learn how to get 10% off your first corporate class!
We are an outdoor beach yoga studio. Classes will be cancelled if it rains, or if the forecast calls for inclement weather. Inclement weather includes, but is not limited to rain, wind, cold temps, smoke, unhealthy air quality, etc. In the event of strong wind, we will move locations in the park, behind the beach. We will offer to reschedule your class/event to a later date. If you are unable to reschedule, we will issue a full refund.
