No Saturday or Sunday Beach Yoga on Folly for June 2018

folly beach island yoga saturday classes public june 2018

We just wanted to post a quick reminder that there will be no more public beach yoga classes on Folly for the remainder of June 2018. We will still host Wednesday morning yoga with Maggie Costello at 9:30 a.m. as well as a class on Thursday evenings with Lesley Leake.  These classes are perfect for the beginner or seasoned yogi and are presented in a way that meets all experience levels.

Remember to bring a large towel to practice on the sand, plenty of water, and arrive already sunscreened if desired. The classes will both be just $12 per person – online or at the class. Class passes will be accepted. We offer a military, veteran, and first responders discount by request on the beach.

Saturday Beach Yoga November 3 2017

Tomorrow morning join in at the open level beach yoga class at 9 a.m. on the 5th Street EAST beach! The class will be led by Samantha Kreshover. Bring a large towel, water, sunblock, and maybe a sweatshirt or jacket because it’ll be 66-70 degrees. Beach and cloud blankets are welcome too! There is no more perfect time for a beach yoga class than this amazingly crisp Fall weekend!

If you can’t make this class check out our schedule and see when you can! We’re on a reduced public beach class schedule for the Fall and Winter seasons, but will happily work with you to schedule a private class for yourself, your family, or your friends. Whether you’re a local with odd hours or visiting the Charleston, SC – Folly Beach area on vacation, we’d love to schedule a special class just for you!

Beach Yoga Tomorrow at 10 AM

Folly Beach Island Yoga classes teacher Maggie Costello

Don’t forget to catch Maggie Costello at her first open beach yoga class tomorrow at 10 a.m. The class will meet on the 5th Street East beach, Folly Beach and will be open level.

It is going to be a bit chilly tomorrow at only 59 degrees (brrrr Fall weather) so remember to bring a sweater or blanket if desired on the beach. Otherwise remember to bring a large or extra large towel (or mat if you prefer) and plenty of water.

Welcome Yoga Teacher Samantha Kreshover

Folly Beach Island Yoga Studio Class Teacher Samantha Kreshover

A warm welcome is going out to one of the newest teachers teaching for Folly Beach Island Yoga – Samantha Kreshover.

Samantha majored in Health Sciences at Boston University and received her graduate degree at University of Virginia for Special Education. She taught Biology to special education students in Virginia for seven years. When she moved to Charleston in 2015, she became a teacher for students with Autism. Samantha became excited about the prospect of introducing yoga to both her students and the Charleston community, with the goal of providing some of the same benefits to them as it has to her. Samantha continues to teach students with autism and is currently integrating yoga into the curriculum as a complementary therapy.

You can learn more about Samantha here, or just come check out one of her open level beach yoga classes — starting this Saturday, October 14 at 9 a.m. on the 5th Street East beach. We hope to see you there!

Morning Glories on the Sand Dunes

Folly Beach Island Yoga Class Location Morning Glory Flowers low res

Love the morning glories on the dunes at our beach yoga spot! They almost seem surreal how they pop up all over the place on the sand dunes and then disappear so suddenly every evening. There’s something magical about that! I just loved the look of this one with the drops of rain collecting on it.

 

Beach Yoga Class Tips for Folly Beach Island Yoga

Beach Yoga Folly Beach Charleston Beach Class

Yoga be the sea. Ahhhh…. how relaxing is that? The ambience between the ocean’s lapping waves, the breeze, the salty air kissing your skin on the “Edge of America”…

Wow. I think I just got all gushy about my own job! Ha! It really is such an amazing treat to be able to teach on the sand on Folly Beach. Every time I walk toward the beach I get that some giddiness I did when I was a kid.

Here are a few quick tips for our public (and private) yoga classes on the beach:

  • Please use the restroom before you get to the beach! The 5th Street East beach access does not have a public restroom.
  • We recommend bringing a towel or two for the beach. Though you may enjoy layering and putting the yoga mat on top, the towel’s texture really works better on the sand.
  • Please bring plenty of water and arrive fully hydrated.
  • Apply sunscreen before the class.–and  if you forget to apply it don’t be shy about asking others to borrow some.
  • If at any time you feel lightheaded or unwell, take a rest. The sun’s rays are much more intense with the reflection from the ocean and sand.
  • Feel free to wear your swimsuit under or as your yoga wear on the beach. if you’re comfortable practicing in it.  You will often find our teachers heading out to surf or swim after (and sometimes before!) the class
  • Updates for weather on all of our outdoor yoga classes will be posted on our Facebook page. This is the quickest way for us to get information out as the weather does sometimes rapidly change on the island.
