You can make every practice your own-set your own intention-free to just be. What better place than the beach to meditate on the breath, fresh sea air and rhythmic waves flowing at your own pace.” Comparin goes on to say, “All poses can be modified or enhanced to be easier or more challenging – sometimes just holding the simplest pose for an extended period of time is harder than a fast moving flow class.
