Did you know today is National Proposal Day 2018? It’s a great to remind you that it’s time to get your private beach yoga sessions scheduled!

Beach yoga is such a special activity to add to your schedule whether you’re planning a mini vacation getaway with the girls for your Folly Beach bachelorette party (or guys—a healthy bachelor’s party anyone?), want a relaxing class to kickoff to your Charleston area wedding weekend for the entire wedding party, or even as a special grounding and centering one on one, or couples, session on your wedding day.

We do extend our U.S. military and service veteran discount to all private sessions, including bridal, bachelorette, and bachelor party yoga.

Contact us today to schedule your private sessions!

And yep–that’s two of your Folly Beach Island Yoga certified yoga teachers walking back to the party from their own magical Folly Beach wedding in the pic above!

This fun picture comes from the kid’s yoga teacher training from Kidding Around Yoga with Melody from last Sunday. Jenny and Samantha participated in the training along with the rest of this amazing crew of women who are all donating their time and expertise to build the Lowcountry Autism Foundation’s new program “Autism + Om”‘s instructor team.

Next Sunday, March 18 at 3 p.m. there will be a free family yoga class at Holy City Salsa Dance Studio in West Ashley. This will be the final day of our kid’s yoga teacher training. The class will be open to all kids of all ages and their families, and we so hope you can join us!

After the class, the crew you see above will be awarded with kid’s yoga teacher certificates. We will then prepare to shift our focus to autism-specific kid’s yoga teacher training. As an autism family we cannot express enough how needed this program is autism families in the Charleston, South Carolina area!

Thanksgiving Day Yoga? Yes!

November is a perfect time for families and friends to visit Folly Beach. The beach is a little cooler (some days), the summer crowds have died down quite a bit, and things just seem a little calmer.  Over the years it has come to be such an amazing destination for Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving.  While we are not offering any more public classes this Fall, we still have some limited availability for private sessions and small group beach yoga classes on Thanksgiving Day / week. We can also come to you at most vacation houses and rental homes on the island.

Whether you’re visiting for the holidays, on a family vacation, here for a bachelorette or bachelor party — or even for the wedding, or are just stopping through for the day during your Charleston area vacation we would love to create a private yoga class just for you! Send us a message today!

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.
