Sea Turtle Hatching Video

Ya’ll!!! So remember we were just talking about sea turtle nesting season? This amazing video got posted on Facebook on July 12 by Karen Player Futrell who was on vacation on a nearby beach Isle of Palms. It’s amazing and absolutely worth watching in full–there are SO many adorable tiny turtles!

Keep an eye out for these nests when you’re out and about on the island or any of the beaches in the Charleston, SC area. Remember to never touch or disturb a sea turtle nest and to turn out the lights at night on the beach to help the babies keep their sense of direction on their way back out to sea.

The turtle nest near our beach yoga class spot is still holding strong as far as we know—but it won’t be long before there are little fin scoots through the sand!

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.

The Soup Stone Collective at Charleston Pourhouse

Charleston Pourhouse Sea turtle mural Soup Stone Collective CHS

Earlier today they hosted an event for the Stone Soup Collective called SOUPSTOCK featuring The Joy Pilots musical talents onstage. Matt was lucky enough to head over that way after teaching yoga class at St. James Gate and got to know a bit more about this awesome community initiative.

The Stone Soup Collective will provide a bowl of soup to a senior citizen in need with every bowl of soup purchased, and empower those who are purchasing by knowing that they are giving back to their community in multiple ways since the ingredients are mostly local too!

Such a cool community initiative, awesome band choice, and fun event!

The stunning sea turtle mural pictured here is at the Charleston Pourhouse.

Yoga Classes on Folly Beach

We’re excited to announce that we are now offering public, small group, and private yoga classes and instruction on the beach. Public open level classes will be held on the beach at 5th Street East, Folly Beach, SC. A paid parking lot is available, as are some limited free street side parking spaces. Remember to park with the flow of traffic if you choose street side parking. Please see our schedule for public class times.

For beach yoga remember to bring a large towel (or mat if you prefer), sunscreen, and plenty of water to the beach. Classes meet on the sand.

Beginning Memorial Day weekend (May 27-28), we will hold additional classes at St. James Gate Irish Pub upstairs at 11 Center Street, Folly Beach. On Saturday mornings catch us upstairs at 11 a.m. and Sundays you can join an open level class at 10 a.m. just in time to catch the brunch hours menu downstairs!
