Close your eyes and imagine you are heading into a downward dog pose, the sounds of waves against the shore filling your ears and the morning sun warming your skin. Now, open your eyes and stop imagining. You can actually make it happen.
Year-rounders sometimes take the beach for granted. It can be a hassle to get to and is frequently busy with tourists. So, why not give yourself a reason to head to the place that probably drew you down here to begin with?
Beach yoga has been trendy over the last few years, with studios offering classes all along the Gulf coast. Fees are generally $10-$25 for a session (or just a donation in some cases). Just make sure you’re not forgetting to bring a towel, yoga mat, sunscreen and water. And definitely check schedules, because locations and frequency tend to change after season.
