Relax — close your eyelids and rid your mind of all your worries, fears and insecurities; letting your breathing ebb and flow like the pull of the tide. Next, slowly exhale, feeling all of the nagging concerns of the workweek leaving your body. Inflate your lungs with a sense of self-assurance and tranquillity, letting your muscles succumb to a complete state of relaxation. Now, open your eyes, spread your legs, and make sure you twist your hip on the follow through — otherwise, your ball is heading straight for that sand trap.

Over the past year, students at Davis Elementary School have found a novel way of escaping the pressures of study: playing possum. Every four weeks on the Costa Mesa school's playground, students have gathered on Wednesday afternoons for Stacy Ahlgren-Wise's yoga class, laying out towels on the grass. During the half-hour session, Ahlgren-Wise leads the children through a series of ancient postures, including the salutations of the sun and moon, the mountain stance and the tree pose.

Yoga has become so popular it seems they’re running out of places to hold classes. First it was the studio, then the park and now the beach. Two Newport Beach fitness experts are taking it a step further. In April, Jaime Donnelly and Noelle Kozak, co-owners of SUP Company Fitness, will launch yoga and circuit training on the water, atop stand-up paddle boards. SUP Fitness offers four classes through the Newport Beach city’s recreation department. It combines exercise routines with stand-up paddling or SUP, an old sport that is quickly gaining new paddlers.

Newport Beach resident Anne McKnight has taught yoga since well before the discipline became as much a part of the southern California landscape as the seaside and hamburger stands. She studied yoga under the world-famous Indra Devi and now teaches at the Lido Island Clubhouse. McKnight, 78, hails from the Chicago area and has always considered creativity a core part of her life. She has worked in the modeling, radio and television industries and enjoys painting and taking classes at the Oasis Senior Center in Corona del Mar. The yoga teacher is also a devotee of astrology -- she met well-known astrologer Jeanne Dixon -- and has led discussions on the practice aboard cruise ships.

We like to think of ourselves as active, but we found a new challenge in Bikram yoga. We've always wanted to do Bikram, which consists of 26 postures performed in a room heated to 105 degrees, with 40% humidity. So, when we saw the Groupon deal for 25 sessions in Costa Mesa for just $25, we were sold. We thought we were tough enough right up until we stepped into Bikram's Yoga College of India at The Camp. Let's just say we're dripping with results, but we've dried off enough to share the experience with readers.
