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.

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!

Makeup Beach Yoga Class on Folly

Folly Beach Island Yoga Classes Teacher Samantha kreshover Class

We were so completely bummed that beach yoga had to be cancelled on Veteran’s Day due to the wind and cold, so we decided to squeeze in one last class for the Fall season! Join us on Saturday, November 18, for our final public beach yoga class of the season! The class is just $12 for the public, and we will once again honor the offer for a free class for all of our military and U.S. service veteran friends with an ID or DD-214.

The class will be taught by Samantha Kreshover and will be open level. Bring a large beach towel or two and plenty of water!

If you can’t make this class, consider booking a private session with us. We love working with friends, families, or individuals who want to experience yoga by the sea and we offer reasonable rates and flexible scheduling. Beach yoga makes the perfect kickoff to Thanksgiving week, a birthday party celebration, wedding week, and more, and it’s more affordable than you think to schedule a private class. Contact us today!

Another beautiful beach yoga class by the sea with the very iconic Folly Beach Pier in the background. This space is so great because it’s a little out of the busy area of downtown, but still has that VIEW!

Hope to see you for beach  yoga soon!

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.
