About Island Yoga Space
This company is housed in its practice space on the north end of Anna Maria Island. Island Yoga Space was the very first yoga location open for practice on the island and remains the premier spot for tranquil practice to this day. With several instructors, you’ll find all types of yoga offered at Island Yoga Space. Choose from Vinyasa flow, Restorative yoga, and even meditation.
Beach yoga is exactly what it sounds like, but Island Yoga Space works hard to make sure the practice is a perfect setting for everyone who joins. Head to the Tortuga Inn Beach Resorts new Pergola on Saturdays for this relaxing yoga class. Located on Gulf Drive in Bradenton Beach, the pergola is located right across the street on the beach and is a state-of-the-art facility.
Island Yoga Space chose this location for the Beach yoga on Anna Maria Island for several important reasons. You still get to soak in the benefits of practicing a yoga class outdoors but on a stable foundation.
The sea air will bring you massive benefits with every breath you take, and the views of the sparkling waters will put you at peace.
When is Beach Yoga?
Island Yoga Space offers beach yoga on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Sometimes, because of the condition of the beach, the classes will be moved back to the studio location. Also, if it is raining or is temperatures are below 65-degrees the classes will be moved back to the studio. Additionally, the class may be moved if there are any weddings or special events to be held in the pergola that day. In any case, yoga is a great indoor activity for a rainy day on Anna Maria Island.
If this is the case just make sure to check the Island Yoga Space website ahead of time to see where the class will be held. These changes will always be posted on the website by 8:45 a.m.
Sometimes, there are special beach yoga classes to be held as well. There is a Sunset to Moonrise class that takes place occasionally in the evening from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
What to Expect
The beach yoga classes offered by Island Yoga Space follow a gentle yoga curriculum. This class is good for beginners or yogis of all ages. Those who come to practice will enjoy gentle stretching, basic postures, and instruction on how to use the positions while practicing proper breathing.
