One of our favorite places to chill like a local, drink wine, snack from the best food trucks in town and enjoy the view is Avila Beach Golf Resort. The clubhouse has a huge lawn extending right to the ocean and overlooking Avila’s lovely beach. Here is where you can routinely find fun concerts, food and wine festivals, taco nights, food truck Sunday brunches and movie nights in the summer.
And now, for the second year, a Yoga Festival with food, bubbles, music and a Maker’s Market! On Sunday, August 12, the area will be transformed into the coolest event yet. The festival offers over 45 yoga-inspired courses from 12 to 5:30 pm, like full yoga classes, specific workshops, relaxation, meditation, even Stand Up Paddleboard yoga.
The festival will encompass many unique Yoga classes and will end with live local music performances! This one day event will include opportunities for all levels and all ages. Whether you are brand new to Yoga and wanting to test the waters, or an experienced Yogi, the diverse class schedule will have something for you.
