Exercising by the ocean makes working out more enjoyable. Add a trainer, and it's even better. Roga offers both, and it's free! What is Roga? Running + yoga. Try one or both. Get in gear every Saturday morning, beginning February 22, 2014 through March 29, 2014 at the Santa Monica Pier.

Kickstart Saturday morning at 8 a.m. with a run or walk. Meet under the iconic, blue Santa Monica Pier sign at the top of the ramp at Colorado and Ocean to warm-up. Then, take a brisk run or walk around the beach and Pier areas. Choose the 2 or 5 mile course.

Restore yourself with a free yoga class every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. lead by some of best instructors in town. Bring your own yoga mat, and meet at the far west end of the Pier. Inhale and exhale while you gaze at the sea. All levels are welcome.
