Sunset Beach Yoga
Friday Night Beach Yoga is at the Washington Ave Beach access next to Cherie Down Park in Cape Canaveral, FL every Friday night beginning April 5th.
This class is donation based and is perfect for all levels including both experienced and first-time yogis.
Beach yoga offers several unique benefits. The salty air is purifying for the body and is especially beneficial for the skin and lungs. Asana (posture) practice in the sand offers an added challenge to balance yet also a unique opportunity to massage the feet. Practicing where the sea meets the land also makes managing our monkey minds a little less daunting of a task!!
