We’re Moving — And Getting Super Excited About It!

We find ourselves by the sea

We are so looking forward to getting back out on the sand for some amazing yoga on Folly Beach!  While I’ll admit we’ve still been enjoying the beach quite a bit through the winter months, it hasn’t quite been the same without our open classes. We miss your smiling sweet faces and beautiful souls and we can’t wait to get back to practicing with you!

This year you’ll notice a change or two–starting with our location! We’re moving–but not too far. Our beach yoga classes will be moving to the 4th Street EAST beach access, a block closer to Center Street. There is still parking at a paid city parking lot, as well as some limited street side parking.

We’re excited for the change, and truly looking forward to some exciting announcements in the future!

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.

Lesley Leake – Folly Beach Island Yoga Classes

folly beach island yoga class college of charleston alumni lesley Leake

Please join us in welcoming yoga teacher Lesley Leake back to the Charleston, SC area! Lesley will be teaching beach yoga classes alongside with us at Folly Beach Island Yoga at the 5th Street East beach. She will be joining us mid-August 2017. Whether you’re here for vacation or live here full time make time in your schedule to check out one of Lesley’s classes with Folly Beach Island Yoga. Please see our schedule to get a full listing of all of her classes.

Lesley took her very first yoga class as a student at College of Charleston 7 years ago. She practiced off and on for several years, but it wasn’t until she moved to Columbia in 2015 for graduate school that she really fell in love with the practice. One day in a vinyasa flow class Lesley had that “aha” moment where mind, body, and breath were all connected. It didn’t take her long to realize that she wanted to help others find that same feeling of connection, and so she decided to become a teacher herself.

Lesley also works at the University of South Carolina’s school of public health where she helps improve public health programs across the state. When she is not practicing or teaching  yoga, she is in the mountains rock climbing and camping, or riding her bike around downtown.

Lesley will begin teaching a class on Folly Beach with Folly Beach Island Yoga beginning in August 2017.
