The community of locals on the Outer Banks of NC has truly a small town feel with amazing folks. I moved down to Nags Head NC ten years ago and one of the first true friendships I developed was this amazing gorgeous woman, Patty McKenna. We met for the first time at a small book club group that met one evening at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills. Sometimes when you meet someone for the first time you just click without even having had much of a conversation at all..and that is the way it was for me and Patty (at least on my end!). Without even knowing each other well, she was courageous enough to join me on an all girls surf camp trip tin Mal Pais, Costa Rica. We went on what was a big birthday trip for me to a surf camp called Pura Vida Adventures ~ Costa Rica Surf & Yoga Retreats. www.PuraVidaAdventures.com It was an amazing experience to say the least. Back then Patty wasn’t a yoga instructor and I didn’t have kids. A lot has changed since that trip. I now have two crazy and adorable boys (who I prayed for on that trip) and have started my own photography business, and Patty, among other things, is now an amazing kite-boarder and is now a certified yoga instructor. While she teaches classes at other local Yoga studios in the Outer Banks, she is starting her new venture Yoga To You OBX. Whether on the beach, by the pool, in the great room, at the park. Any size group.
So, to help get her get up and running yogatoyouobx.com (site coming soon), we took advantage of the unseasonably warm evening in March and got some photos to put up on her website. Here are a few of the images that we took up in Southern Shores the other evening at sunset. Thanks to friends and family who came out to support! If you are looking for an amazing instructor with plenty of laid back fun…check out Patty and book her for a session. You won’t regret it!
