Free yoga classes on the sand, Tuesday mornings.

IOP Beach Yoga

Take in the beauty of the beach as you get your morning workout... right near our Isle of Palms rentals.

In 2023, the IOP Rec Center sponsored its first series of free Rise & Shine Beach Yoga Flow classes right on the beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.   They started offering it each Tuesday morning in May.  It proved so popular, they ended up continuing it all the way through October.  Precise plans for 2024 haven't been announced yet, so stay tuned.

Here’s how new Recreation Director Karrie Ferrell described it, “Yoga Flow is a fantastic way to start the day. It helps correct muscle imbalances; increases flexibility, strength, and endurance; reduces stress; improves concentration and creativity; lowers body fat; stimulates the immune system; and more. Mind and Body Wellness, salt air, rolling waves, and sunshine – HELLO MORNING!”

Here are the details:

  • 7:30 a.m. each Tuesday morning;
  • Meet at the beach at 25th Avenue;
  • Classes are open to both residents and visitors alike and for all fitness levels;
  • Instructor Kathy Berry will lead classes focusing on overall mind and body wellness, with adaptive poses and modifications as necessary for various fitness levels;
  • There’s no charge for classes, but you’re asked to register on the IOP’s website;
  • In case of bad weather, classes will take place in the Rec Center’s Magnolia Room, at 24 28th Avenue.

It's an especially convenient (not to mention free) fitness option while you're here staying in one of our Isle of Palms oceanfront vacation rentals.
