Beach Doggies are Welcome Again!

folly beach island yoga dog rules in chains funny

October brings a lot of things to the island, but one that I know many Folly Beach residents and vacationers look forward to is the ability to bring your leashed pups back on the beach…

ALL DAY LONG!

From now until May 1 your furry friends can accompany you onto the sand anytime of day! (from May 1 – October 1 leashed dogs are only allowed on the sand before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m.)

 

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.

St. James Gate Irish Pub

We are so very blessed to have such a cool host for our indoor yoga classes in St. James Gate Irish Pub. On weekends you can find us teaching an all level yoga class upstairs (in the back through the patio) in the Greenroom. Class times are 11 a.m. on  Saturdays and 10 a.m. on Sundays. The address is 11 Center Street, Folly Beach, SC 29439

Afterwards we love to get the chance to run downstairs and visit this amazing space that will instantly transport you the Emerald Isle with a stunningly detailed and authentic interior. On Sundays during the summer you will also find a brunch menu and drink specials. They offer an inviting atmosphere, a cozy patio and outdoor bar (with a fireplace for those cooler evenings to come in the winter!), traditional Irish fare and seafood dishes, and a variety of live entertainment, both day and night on both floors.

Folly Beach Cactus Plants

Ever notice the local Folly island cacti plants? 🌵😍🌵😍🌵The particular cactus photographed here hides in the underbrush along the beach access walkway at 5th Street East that leads in to our beach yoga classes. Please don’t blindly poke your hands in there! LOL But always keep your eyes peeled on the island. There is some magical and interesting hidden everywhere!

Sea Turtle Nesting Season

folly beach island yoga sea turtle nest loggerhead sc

Cheering for all of these little guys and gals out on the island tonight! These sweet little babies were laid close to our beach yoga class spot. We are so very much hoping to see little scoots in the sand headed back to their real home soon!

Fun fact I learned tonight on FollyTurtles.com: Female turtles will return to the beach that they were born on to lay their eggs. How beautiful is that? Folly gals!

Such a tiny fraction of these beautiful creatures will survive to reproduce….but YOU have the power to help. Remember lights out on the beach at night, fill in any holes and knock down sand castles at the end of the day, and please clean up any trash.
