Surf Salutations is a brand new yoga + fitness studio in Oceanside, blending the beachy, laid-back vibes of both of San Diego + Sydney, Australia.
Inspired by the coastal lifestyle of both California and Australia, Surf Salutations new studio space reflects the calming influence of the ocean and mirrors the joy of riding the waves. Owner and yoga instructor Megan Peters, a dual citizen of both the U.S. and Australia, was inspired to create her own yoga community after returning to the states after living abroad in Australia for seven years and wanting to pursue a wellness path after a busy career in tech.
Inspired By Coastal Living
Just like waves ebbing and flowing in the ocean, each Surf Salutation class starts with a unique 3-minute “Breathe to the Beat” breathwork exercise. This practice helps participants “transition from their busy lives into a focused and present state, syncing their breath with rhythmic movements and cultivate a deeper mind-body connection.”
Surf Salutations offers a diverse range of classes, each carefully designed to cater to different preferences and fitness levels. The studio’s class lineup includes:
Power Flow: A dynamic and invigorating class that synchronizes movement with breath, Power Flow at Surf Salutations is perfect for those looking to build strength, flexibility, and balance.
Mellow Flow: For a more gentle and introspective experience, Mellow Flow provides a calming atmosphere, allowing participants to unwind, stretch, and find inner peace.
Sculpt Flow: Incorporating elements of strength training and resistance, Sculpt Flow is a full-body workout that challenges both the body and mind.
Yin: Designed to release deep-seated tension and improve flexibility, Yin classes focus on longer-held, passive poses that target the connective tissues.
Breath Flow: Centered around breathwork, Breath Flow classes guide participants through various pranayama techniques, promoting mindfulness and relaxation.
HIIT: Surf Salutations’ High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) classes offer a unique fusion of yoga and cardiovascular exercises, delivering a powerful workout for those seeking an energetic challenge.
Mom + Grom (Mommy and Me) Yoga: Recognizing the importance of family, Surf Salutations introduces Mom + Grom, a class designed for mothers and their little ones to bond through yoga in a playful and nurturing environment.
Community and Connection
After becoming a mom herself, Megan also realizes how valuable a like-minded community can be when entering a new stage of life or just experiencing life in general. Surf Salutations will also play host to wellness events, workshops, and community gatherings to foster connections among its members. The studio’s Beach Boutique is also carefully curated with special finds to support a surf and wellness lifestyle.
