Amelia Island offers some unexpected, highly inspired backdrops for yogis from absolute beginners to power practitioners. Here are five perfect places to begin, or continue, your health and wellness journey.
Leave your mat on the shore and hop onto a stand-up paddle board (SUP) for a floating class led by Kayak Amelia and Amelia Island’s original SUP yoga instructor, Deb Cunningham. No experience on a paddleboard or in yoga is required, and taking a dip while challenging your balance is encouraged. Soak in the sun and hear the peaceful waters lap against your board for the ultimate in relaxation.
Find your drishti on the horizon when you practice yoga along our Atlantic waters. Guests of The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island and the Omni Amelia Island Resort can join in oceanfront yoga classes at their respective locations while Deb Cunningham Yoga offer yoga sessions that you can take right on the beach! There’s no better way to relax than stretching out your muscles with your toes in the sand all while overlooking the ocean.
Like moths to a flame, island yogis draw those who seek peaceful relaxation in their yoga practice, to their candlelight classes. Centred on Yoga offers Restorative Candlelight yoga – a slow vinyasa focusing on calming restorative asanas. Or, find flexibility, long held poses, and mindful breath in Candlelight Yin Yoga held at Community Yoga + Wellness.
The Amelia Island Williams House invites you to their Sunrise and/or Moonlight Yoga classes held on the front lawn of the historical Bed & Breakfast. The class incorporates flow sequences and short holds to improve balance, strength, and flexibility. Poses are modified for all levels in this series that will leave students energized, centered, and stress free. It’s the perfect way to begin or end your day!
