Given the increasing pace and conflict present in modern life, with all its resulting stress, one could say that yoga has become an essential tool for survival, as well as for expanding the creativity and joy of our lives.
All of the yoga classes are practiced with full awareness of the breath. Yoga increases knowledge and appreciation for life by making us more aware of our body, feeling, and thought patterns so we can make better choices and take appropriate actions in our life.
Yoga has been found to decrease stress levels and help individuals alleviate stress, depression, and other emotional issues.
Let go of the ego and be open to a new possibility of positive change in your body, mind, and spirit most important every stretch begins with a smile.
Yoga should be practiced barefoot
Besides–yoga should be practiced barefoot, so you feel more grounded and stable in the postures. Remember stretch ONLY at your ability, ouch is not a good word please be careful.
Let the instructor knows it’s your first time and discuss any health concerns
About taking a Beach Yoga Class
Don’t forget a light jacket, sweatshirt, or sweater. Sometimes in the mornings, if it is cool, you may want to put on a light sweater, jacket, or windbreaker. When you are overlooking the water from the pavilion and feeling enlightened, the ocean is going to call out your name. Be prepared. Jumping in the water after morning sun salutations are up there with chocolate as one of life’s greatest treats.
Bring your yoga mat. You’ll be on a concrete floor, so ensure you bring it with you. You may consider a very large towel- however, we’ve found a yoga mat works best. Note you will not be on the sand or directly on the beach. See the images at the top of the page to get an idea of the environment.
Many of our existing members, regulars, and new people join us for Beach Yoga at Spring Lake. We’re a fun and amazing community. Get to know each other, and have some fun. We know you’ll love it. And besides, you can’t beat the view!
If you’re headed right to the beach after class don’t forget your sunscreen!!!
Wear breathable clothing in contrast to studio clothing. If it’s a hot morning, you may cook in nylon lycra combinations so keep it natural and moisture wicking.
At Spring Lake Pavilion North
Mom, daughter, teacher, business owner, recovering fashion designer; like many, life demands we wear numerous hats.
In 2016 after 20 years in the fashion industry and teaching yoga part-time for nearly a decade prior, Jennifer purchased Inlet Yoga Community and began a new chapter in her life. Not only with a yoga studio but soon thereafter in 2017 had a beautiful little girl. The two complement one.
Jennifer believes in the potential of a yoga practice to bring people not only to greater health but a community together from all stages of life. Throughout her time at Inlet, she has headed up and coordinated workshops, classes, international retreats, and teacher training. In multitasking, she also found time to be a new mom. 2020 was not all bad.
Everloving to learn and share, Jennifer was able to begin to teach a chair yoga class for Inlet Yoga (she had been practicing on her own for a few years prior). In this class, she diversified her vinyasa class offerings for the students by focusing on and exploring mindful alignment, strengthening, joint function, and mobility as well as delve deeper into her love of mindful movement and breath practice.
Her more challenging, dynamic, skills and drills, flow-oriented, vinyasa classes are always a favorite filled with community and friends. Most students knowing Jennifer will plan for them will return more than once a week for the challenge and stay for the fun. If not at Inlet Yoga, catch her on the beach, with her daughter, or on Instagram: @jvafakos or @inletyogacommunity
