Julianne Aiello's silent disco beach yoga classes are a modern SF institution
"I remember looking around and thinking, Holy WOW, this is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Are we really doing this?"
That's Julianne Aiello, a nature-loving yogi, looking back on her very first silent disco yoga class on Baker Beach in 2015. Now, the 33-year-old is a household name in the San Francisco yoga community, where she's created her own unique style of practice through Outdoor Yoga SF.
"I've always been in love with nature, and there's a way to use all of the elements—the ocean, the sand, the breeze, and the music—to help people feel present," she says. "We're all looking at our phones to feel engaged, but the answers aren't there. When we tune into nature, we feel a whole other level of presence and connection to whatever it is we're looking for."
