Pam's Yoga Fitness Class

Fresh air and sunshine! The beautiful Town Hall meeting room has two walls of glass letting in natural light year around. Most days we open the doors to let in fresh air. Wood-beam cathedral ceiling, views of trees and sky.

The class is as easy as breathing. Slow-flow hatha with ab work.

Wednesdays 10:15am to 11:30am

Instructor:Pam Walatka

Pam Portugal Walatka studied in person with Alan Watts, Joseph Campbell, Aldous Huxley, Abraham Maslow, Ida Rolf, Charlotte Selver, Shogaku Shunryu Suzuki-roshi, Fritz Perls, Michael Murphy, Houston Smith, Ram Dass, and others. She lived in Nepal for a year. She was the first yoga teacher at Esalen (starting in 1968, when there were about a dozen yoga teachers in America). She is credentialed by the State of California to teach yoga in a community college.

Yoga, meditation, and Pilates. Stretch, relax, and strengthen. Learn to be in your body.

Students who enjoy this class also enjoy other types of exercise. The class is for people who like a vigorous, quiet workout followed by meditation.

We have a variety of ages in the class, but this is not gentle yoga. It's a workout. You need to be at least a little bit buff to keep up.


The class meets almost every Wednesday. 10:15 sharp. If it is Wednesday, it must be yoga. Except: no class the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and 4th of July.

This is from the past.
I am 73 now.

Once in a while there is time to see the beauty of the world.
The world is waiting
for you to notice it.
