Welcome to yoga & fitness classes at DBMS!
Dockside Yoga & Fitness began in 2016 when a local yoga instructor was so moved by the space overlooking Duxbury Bay, they inquired about teaching a class on Saturday mornings. Since then, we have expanded our schedule and staff to accommodate our community. At Dockside Yoga & Fitness, we believe there is nothing more special than connecting with nature during your practice. In the clean, spacious Clifford Hall with panoramic views, you are removed from life for a bit. From here, you may begin to deepen your connection with your breath, your movement, the Bay and yourself. Drop in, or Zoom-in, to enjoy the waterfront in a new way here in Duxbury. We look forward to seeing you in a class soon.

Portuguese Blistered Peppers with Chorizo and Lemon
From Pico Island, Azores, Portugal
You will need:
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 cup chorizo (sliced into ¼” rounds, or cut into ¼” cubes)
1 lemon, cut into thick slices
1 red bell pepper and 3 poblano peppers*, seeded and cut into bite sized pieces
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Flaky sea salt (I prefer Maldon Sea Salt Flakes)
optional: Red pepper flakes if you want extra spice
*When in season, this recipe can also be made with 1/2 pound shishito peppers.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a medium skillet. Sauté́ chorizo and lemon slices until the sausage becomes crispy and lemon slices are browned.
- In a separate skillet, heat the remaining oil and add the chopped peppers. Sauté́ until the peppers start to blister, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Add lemon juice to the peppers, then mix in the sautéed chorizo and lemons.
- Place on a platter, and top with flaky sea salt and some red pepper flakes (optional).
Vietnamese Roasted Oysters
From Hoi An, Vietnam
You will need:
6 raw oysters, scrubbed clean
Enough coarse salt to form a ½ inch layer in your baking dish*
5 Tablespoons Canola Oil
3 teaspoons Chili Garlic Sauce
1 ½ teaspoons Sugar
1 ½ teaspoons Soy sauce
1 ½ Tablespoons chopped Green onion (green part only)
¼ cup Peanuts
Sprinkle of crispy fried onion (from a can or jar) for topping each oyster
Slices of lime for garnish
Notes: This recipe can be adapted to accommodate any number of oysters. Oysters can also be roasted on the grill.
- Pre-heat oven to 475.
- Prepare the oysters:
*Before you begin to roast, it’s important to place the raw, cleaned oysters (“cup” side down) on something that will help keep them steady. You don’t want them to tip and lose their liquor as soon as they pop open in the oven. Use a wire cooling rack fitted into a sheet pan, or simply line your baking sheet (or oven proof serving dish) with a layer of coarse salt, which will cradle the oysters nicely.
3. Roast oysters for 8-10 minutes, or until the shell opens about ¼ inch.
4. Prepare the sauce:
While oysters are roasting, heat oil, chili sauce, soy and sugar in a small sauce pan over low heat. When warm, add peanuts and green onions. Simmer on very low heat until ready to use.
5. Remove oysters from oven and handle carefully (they will be hot!) Remove top shell and loosen the oyster from the bottom shell. Place each oyster on an oyster plate, or back into the salt filled baking dish to serve. Top each oyster with ½ Tablespoon of sauce and a sprinkle of crispy onions.

For every body – Gentle Flow Yoga is structured around rejuvenating and healing the body.

“The space is magical, the energy from the ocean engulfs one’s spirit as you journey through your yoga practice.”
“Having the opportunity to teach yoga at DBMS has been incredible. The community has really embraced us and I love seeing how much the program has grown. The lineup of instructors is outstanding and Clifford Hall is truly one of the most beautiful spaces I have ever seen! I love seeing the surprised faces and hearing gasps in the voices of students who walk in for the first time and are in awe of the room and the spectacular view of Duxbury Harbor. It is so calming and peaceful which makes it the perfect space for yoga.”
