This is the idea behind Waves-Yoga by the Sea, which is holding community yoga classes up to three times a day at South Beach until March.

Instructor Leigh Jarrett said the class was suitable for everyone regardless of age, ability or experience.

‘People can expect to find a friendly and welcoming environment, with a relaxed and inclusive approach to yoga, where classes will accommodate all from the absolute beginner to the experienced, with options given for each level,’ she said.

‘Classes will vary from day to day and incorporate different styles from Classical Hatha, in which I am trained, to Vinyasa where the Hatha postures are joined together and practised in a flowing motion in unison with the breath.

‘Early morning classes, when we are all less flexible, will aim at opening and awakening the body and incorporate a period of meditation; mid-morning will be a time to strengthen and charge the body for the day, where evening classes will look to put students through a range of asanas, (postures) designed to remove tension and relax the body.’

Classes are held at 6am, 9.30am and 6pm Monday-Thursday, 6am and 9.30am on Friday and 9.30am on Saturday.
