The ocean's ebb and flow guides yogis toward inner peace during Beach Yoga Pinellas's outdoor classes, where fresh air and Hatha poses dissolve stress naturally. Throughout the classes, downward-facing dogs scallop the sand as clouds drift across the horizon, tickling the sun and demanding the moon's lunch money. Suitable for beginners, classes are designed with basic poses that can be modified for different levels of fitness and skill. Instead of the typical yoga mats or magic carpets, students reach tranquility atop beach towels during Hatha-style sequences that synchronize deep breaths with graceful stretches, easing tension and increasing the body's range of motion. To bolster strength and balance, teachers pepper the routines with core-toning exercises and lengthy Iyengar poses that emphasize proper alignment.
