The Perfect Space

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!

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.

 

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.
