Meet Your Instructors


Emma is an E-RYT with Yoga Alliance and has been teaching hatha yoga for 23 years. She received her certification from YogaFit, Inc., a California-based training company that focuses on making yoga safe and accessible to all. She also worked for YogaFit as a teacher trainer, traveling to various locations throughout the country to lead educational workshops. Over the years Emma has pursued additional yoga training with Shiva Rea, learned Buddhist mindfulness practice with Lama Tsultrim Allione, and studied non-dual Saiva Tantra with Christopher “Hareesh” Wallis. Through her own healing journey, she has experienced the profoundly positive effects of yoga practice for body and soul, which has made her extremely passionate about sharing yogic tools with others. She takes pride in making her classes welcoming, safe, and accessible for all yogis, and in seamlessly integrating the philosophical
traditions of yoga into the asana practice.

Emma also is a Masters Level mental health clinician, who integrates spirituality into her counseling work. In her spare time, she studies Flamenco Dance with the Alborada Dance Company and serves as the Vice Chair of the Ocean County Democratic Party. Her most
important role is as a mom to three incredible teenagers. She resides with her children, husband Ron, and dog Maverick in the Midstreams section of Brick.


Kristin is a passionate yoga teacher with 9 years of teaching experience and 25 years of practice on the mat. Her focus is to be the guide of the class allowing each student to grown their practice at their own pace. Kristin believes that yoga is for everyone, that every “body” is different, and it is her desire to honor each student’s practice. With a well rounded history of teaching yoga in many forms, private, studio, chair, senior chair and on the beach, Kristin is able to adapt to many levels and abilities of the students at each practice. Practicing yoga outside, connecting with nature is her passion and that is why she is drawn to teaching by the sea, to establish a deeper connection with Mother Earth and finding inner peace with in herself.

Beach Yoga

Welcome to Beach Yoga!

Located on Johnson Street Beach, our yoga sessions provide an idyllic setting for your practice. Immerse yourself in the serene atmosphere as you listen to the soothing sound of crashing waves and feel the gentle touch of sand beneath your feet.

Our classes are held from Thursday to Monday until after Labor Day weekend, ensuring you have ample opportunities to join us throughout the week. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced yogi, all levels are warmly welcomed. Our skilled instructors will guide you through a series of poses, helping you deepen your practice and find inner peace.

One of the highlights of our beach yoga experience is the frequent appearance of dolphins in the ocean. Witness these graceful creatures as they frolic in the waves, adding a touch of magic to your practice and connecting you to the wonders of nature.
