Yoga on the Beach

Every summer, we bring the practice of Yoga to our shores. This year, it will be our 6th year of Yoga on the Beach, facilitated by Amy Hubbell of Yoga on the Beach, Leelanau County.

The practice of yoga starts by showing up with the intention of looking inside oneself to reflect on what your body and soul may need.
We are honored to be able to do so on the lovely lakeshore of the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes.

 

We practice Yoga on the Beach at Glen Haven beach on the north side of the Cannery Boathouse Museum, in front of the parking lot at the end of Glen Haven Rd (take a right at the stop sign). 
If you do not find us on the beach, we have decided to practice on the lawn to the south of the Cannery Boathouse Museum, look for the signs that say Yoga on the Beach!


We have adjusted our program this year to ensure a safe practice for all who join us. 

 

To participate, we request the following: 

  1. Sign up for Yoga on the Beach ahead of time using the form below. This will serve as your waiver to participate and overview of liability in participating at your own risk. Yoga is generally a low-risk activity and the instructor will always provide modification levels. 
  2. We facilitate the Yoga Program to enjoy the beach and ask for a suggested donation of $10 for each class which will be split between the Volunteer instructor and to the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes general fund to support projects in the Park. 
    If you plan to practice with us all summer, feel free to process your donation in a lump sum. DONATE HERE
  3. Come prepared for class outside! The lakeshore tends to feel about 10 degrees cooler than inland, especially on a windy day! Bring layers, sun protection, bug spray, and a water bottle. The bathroom facilities at Glen Haven will be open. Please also bring your own mat or towel, however, when practicing on the beach it can be easier (and more fun) to practice with bare feet in the sand! 
  4. We ask you to show up at least 10 minutes early to allow everyone time to find a spot as we will mark the appropriate social distance from other participants. 
    Until state ordinances are lifted, the Park asks visitors to wear a mask when appropriate social distancing can not be practiced. Reference the Benzie Leelanau County Health Department and Resource for Group Gatherings for more information.
