Pelican Yoga at Merry Pier on Pass-A-Grille STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROBERT NEFF

Oct. 10, 2017. The Pelican Beakon Newspaper sent their one staff human photographer to capture the special Pelican Yoga class called "Into the Strong Northern Wind." The class was held at the old pylons just north of Merry Pier. The old pylons are located on Pass-A-Grille Way, next to the seawall. If you are flying, it's on Pass-A-Griile Channel. Technically, Pass-A-Grille is an area on St. Pete Beach but the residents will tell you they only let the City of St. Pete Beach think that, because Pass-A-Grille has its own unique style.

The female Instructor has arrived and grips the old pylon. Class is ready to begin. She does a quick check to ensure all participants have their Advanced Pelican Yoga Certification.
Pelican Yoga is for all ages. This older male is used to the strong winds.
First pose is called, Feeling your center of gravity.
Pose is called, Balance on the Edge. Our photographer saw that the female pelican was tangled in a fishing line and called seabird rescue.

Pose is called, Beak down and tilt right with right wing higher than left.

My book, Pelican Beakon, earned a silver medal at 2017 Florida Authors and Publishers Association President's Book Award in the short story fiction category. The Pelican Beakon is a newspaper for pelicans, by pelicans, and their one staff human photographer who dreams of being writer. Read more about the Pelican Beakon on its website.
