Ocean Yoga was founded in January 2008 by Ron Kino and Alison Sanders. When the only yoga studio in town was closing its doors in November 2007, we gathered a group of friends and members of the community to talk about how we could move forward to keep a space in Pacifica for practicing yoga. Many of us had become friends through yoga and we wanted to support and maintain the sense of community and everything that it brought to our lives.
We started building the studio in December 2007, with a team of friends and volunteers who worked long hours installing the bamboo floor, painting and cleaning, putting up walls and creating the administrative infrastructure of the studio. In January 2008, we opened our doors with a limited schedule, and on March 28th 2008, we held our grand opening party.
Our programs have grown over the years, and we are proud to offer a diverse and creative yoga program for all levels, a fantastic Belly Dance program; massage therapy, Reiki and Bowen treatments as well as a wide variety of workshops. Our programs are led by experienced and knowledable professionals who take great pride in the services they provide.
In the last five years, we have grown and changed, and we have continued to work hard to create a harmonious space that serves as a refuge from the busy lives we lead. Ocean Yoga would not exist were it not for the dedication of friends, family, investors, teachers, therapists, and our front desk staff. We are grateful to our community for the years they have supported us at Ocean Yoga.
