Yoga on the Beach was founded on the first day of summer in 2010 by a small group of certified yoga teachers living in northern Michigan.
Our passion for practicing yoga, especially in the great outdoors, inspired us to offer an annual summer series of donation-based classes on the nearby shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau.
Practicing yoga on the bare earth can help root you in the present moment, improving strength and balance while relieving stress.
Our style of gentle flowing classes are challenging yet relaxing for both body and mind.
They provide an opportunity to take some time out of your busy summer schedule and find a deeper connection with your true self and with nature.
We generally offer 3-4 classes per week starting on the Summer Solstice through Labor Day, sometimes longer if the weather stays nice.
All classes are 60 minutes with a suggested donation of $10.
Or book us for a private session and bring some yoga-induced tranquility to your next event or gathering.
All Are Welcome
Yogis of all levels - even total beginners - are invited to participate. We always offer modifications and encourage everyone to practice at their own pace.
Come As You Are
We recommend dressing in comfortable layers and bringing plenty of drinking water and a towel or blanket you can stretch out on.
Sun block and bug repellent are always a good idea too.
This year we are also asking everyone to stay home if not feeling well, and maintain a distance of 6 feet from everyone not in your household.
