Upcoming May 1, 2022 Summer Yoga Schedule Announcement: 8:30 to 10:00 am M, W, F, Sa,


We have had a fabulous spring season of yoga classes with beautiful weather through out. Now we are about to start our Summer yoga class schedule which has traditionally changed the start time from 9 am to 8 am with the idea of starting earlier in the summer when it is cooler. Several students have complained to me this year that it is too early for them for various reasons and they have asked if I would consider starting the classes at 8:30 am instead. In all the years I have been teaching on Siesta Key beach I have always started the Summer classes at 8:00am but I have had so many requests for the 8:30 am start time that I am going to try it. So Starting May 1 all classes will begin at 8:30 am and end at 10:00 am I am willing to try this in order to make the class available to the most people. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. I hope this new time will be cool enough weather wise and convenient enough for everyon’e schedule.

Thank you and I hope to see everyone soon.

Love and Joy

  1. Hi there! I am visiting Siesta Key this weekend and I’m interested in your class.
    Can you please explain to me where I can find it on the beach?
    Thank you!

    • Yes jenny. The class is located on the main Siesta Key Public beach with the different colored lifeguard stands in front of the parking lot and shopping pavilion. Specifically the class is between the green and blue life guard stand. The class will begin at 9 am but on May 1 the class begins at 8:30 am So I hope to see you soon.
