Do you like to be up in the early morning to catch the sunrise? Why not add a little yoga to your morning mix as well! Here at the Sanderling Resort during the summer season, we offer Sunrise Yoga on the Beach, a great way to set the tone for your vacation each morning. We offer a unique touch to Yoga on the Beach, as it is offered on our Observation Deck with a hardwood floor overlooking the ocean.
Our instructor, Susie Nelson, is sure to create a unique class each morning. Susie has traveled the world studying yoga and massage and in 2010 completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Nicaragua at a month long immersion program for Hatha and Vinyasa styles. Susie offers a multi-level class. Whether you are brand new to yoga, or have been taking classes for years, she will teach modified versions to best fit your fitness/yoga level to make it your own class.
One special aspect of our yoga lessons are during the final resting pose, Susie will come around with lavender oil and cold towels, as it can get hot even in the early mornings of the summer. This unique aspect makes it a “spa experience yoga”, as past attendees have mentioned. Sunrise Yoga is a particularly special time of day to set the mood for a calm, zen day.
Private lessons are also available by appointment. Whether you would like a private sunset lesson, or have a bonding experience for your bridal party, a private lesson is a wonderful option! Indoor classes can hold up to 4 people with a candlelit ambiance. For an outside class, early morning or sunset options are best, as it becomes very warm during the summer days. Susie is able to offer a customized class based on your personal preference for private lessons.
Sunrise Yoga is available Monday-Friday during the summer season from the end of May to the end of September; 7:30-8:45am; $17/person. Private lessons based on availability. Bring your own mat or one will be provided. Meet in the Beach House Lobby. Be sure to set the tone for your vacation with a calming experience to bring together your family and share those precious moments of vacation with your loved ones.
