Have you ever been drawn to water? Or felt calmer after spending time by the ocean? Dive in with Krystina Jarvis, owner of A Drop in the Ocean, and Casey Hubbell, co-founder of Yoga Wild, as we explore why. Through reading, journaling, discussion, and yoga, we will explore our relationship with water, how we feel around water, the stresses imposed upon wild waters, and how we can be advocates for water’s protection.
Based on the book Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do by Wallace J. Nichols, this workshop will connect mindfulness with environmental sustainability, giving you the tools you need to protect this big blue marble we call home.
- There will be a discussion of the book but reading not required.
- No yoga experience necessary.
- About 90 minutes of discussion, 30 minutes of yoga.
What to bring
- Journal and pen
- Yoga mat (we have extras to borrow)
- Class is held in the lawn at Dune Peninsula. Bring anything you need for comfort: lawn chair, blanket, layers, snacks, etc.

Hi there! I’m Krystina, and I’m a zero waste wannabe. I started on a journey to zero waste in early 2017, and it quickly became a way of life and a passion. I have considered myself an environmentalist my whole life, but it was not until I fell into zero waste that I truly felt like I was living the environmentalist ethic. Until zero waste, I was like many people in the world who believed that in order to do conservation you needed several degrees, a massive bank account for international travel, and a sweet job that had “conservation” in the title. I have learned that that is simply not true. I am working towards a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology and did actually have a job with “conservation” in the title, but those are just details of my conservationist life now – not the main points.
