Snowbirds heading back to the SUN, Beach Yoga Manasota Beach

Yogis on Manasota Beach

Welcome to all our new and “old” Snowbirds at Manasota Beach Yoga. We are seeing new faces every day at our yoga classes. It is so much fun to welcome everyone back.  The classes are growing in numbers.

Lou offers additional 15 minutes of advanced Yoga right after the end of his 9AM yoga class on Wednesday.

Toby is on Manasota Beach every Tuesday and Katja teaches Monday, Thursday and Friday.

We offer 2 classes, 8 AM and 9AM. You can do one or stay for both.

The classes are great for all ages and levels. Beginners and couch potatoes are welcome.

No Yoga mat needed, just bring a blanket and join us.

Our teachers are certified and insured.

The classes are supported solely by Free Will donations. Ample free parking is available.

The address is 8570 Manasota Key Rd, Englewood, FL 34223. Just turn on to Manasota Beach Road from 776 (Englewood Rd) and drive until you go over the bridge.

The Fall is here with our Full Beach Yoga Schedule

Fall is here but in Florida the most beautiful season is still to come.
Yoga Season on Manasota Beach starts now. Join us for our regular yoga classes in the sand.
Yoga mats are not necessary a towel or blanket will do.  A beginner is just as comfortable in our classes as a more advanced yogi.
Please join us!  Classes are Monday through Friday 8 am and 9 am

Yoga for Every Body

I was a total newbie when a friend persuaded me to try yoga on the beach. Now almost three years later I can’t imagine a week without yoga. Katja, Lou and Toby are great instructors, every class is a little bit different, class sizes are manageable and everyone is very friendly and non-judgmental. I always leave feeling toned, stretched, balanced and mentally and physically stronger; really, what more could you ask from half an hour?

Summer Vacation

We wish all our students a wonderful Summer, wherever they are.
Our Manasota Beach yoga will be back on the Beach in less than 2 months on October 1st.
We are hoping  very much the red tide will be gone much sooner than this. It has been a very difficult Summer so far with an extremely persistent Red Tide.

In the meantime Toby teaches Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 9AM on Nokomis Beach (North Jetty Beach Park).

Elin teaches Morning classes daily at 8AM at Venice Beach  and there are Sunset Classes from Monday through Thursday at 7PM.

If you are in the area come and join one of the above classes. It feels good to be back in the yoga groove.

It’s Chilly In Florida

Thanks to our “tough” Yogis for showing up over the last cold days we had. 
If you wonder how that works, here is the answer.
We all dress in layers and warmer than usual. Cold day classes are little more  vigorous with the addition of some “aerobic” exercises to get and keep us warm. We also include a share of our usual and so important stretches, balances and more.  
More often than not, the sun comes out and warms us up. 
The air is crisp and fresh and students often say they feel even more invigorated doing Yoga on a cold day.
No cancellation for cold weather, your teachers will be there regardless of  the temperature.*

“I can’t even reach my toes.”

17361961_1476616159046947_4581503570016061115_n“I can’t do Yoga, can’t even reach my toes.” I often hear this or a similar reactions to my mentioning our yoga classes for all abilities and ages. The answer can come from 32, 65 or 85 year olds alike.
Hearing this is troubling because yoga seems to have a reputation to be only for the already fit, limber, slim and healthy. This is absolutely not the case. Yoga is an exercise routine that makes everyone feel better, as long as it is done with a good warm up and within your abilities.
Weight or inflexibility is not a problem, nor is it a problem if one can’t balance on one leg very well or even not at all. We have students in our classes with a variety of ailments, young, old and very old. Yoga makes them feel stronger, better and yoga lessens their pain.
When you come to a class, introduce yourself to the teacher, share your concerns, hear their feedback and enjoy the experience.
