Northern Michigan Events: Yoga on the Beach

Northern Michigan Events: Sun Salutations are better on the beach! In Leelanau County this summer, center your mind and body with an unbeatable view.

By Lucy Perkins

Summer is often seen as the season where we all can finally relax. It consists of those June, July and August days we long for in March, overwhelmed with commitments and no time for any fun rewards for ourselves. That being said, when summer does actually arrive, we often find ourselves just as busy, but wearing T-shirts instead of sweaters.

And, ironically, many activities we sign ourselves up for throughout the summer has no real emphasis on relaxation. But some do. Yoga on the Beach of Leelanau County, does.

Classes are held throughout the week at beaches through out the county with classes scheduled throughout the day--some in the evening end just before the sun sets!

This is the sort of thing that brings it all together-the beaches, water, dunes, sunrises and sunsets that you dream of in March are here and we can experience it all while doing something good for your body.

The following schedule is effective July 15 through September 5, but is subject to change. Be sure to visit Yoga on the Beach's Facebook page for any last-minute changes.
