Get Outside this Summer with Beach Yoga, Tai Chi and Music Under the Stars

It’s amazing what being outside can do for you mentally and physically, so what are you waiting for?  Get outside!  You may be surprised to learn that almost everything you enjoy doing indoors can be done outdoors in the summer.  It just takes a little digging, but I’ve already taken care of that for you.  Check out these awesome activities that will get you inspired and energized.

Beach Yoga
Devon Giordano, an awe-inspiring Yoga instructor, offers classes Sunday mornings 7:30- 8:15 am at Jones Beach, Field 6. Park all the way to the left and find us on the sand.  I love to start my week with a great, healthy activity like this.  It gives me the boost I need to continue eating right and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Class cost is donation only. Please RSVP if you are attending.  I hope to see you there!

What you will need:
A mat or a towel
Easy to slip on and off shoes like flip flops

Burns Town Park.”  They will have 2 concerts a week this July so you will have no shortage to choose from!
