EVENT CANCELLED: Yoga on the Beach

September 15, 2013 | 10:30 - 11:30am

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled due to a forecast of thunderstorms and the potential for higher-than-usual waves. We regret the inconvenience.


Come out and enjoy the beauty of the Openlands Lakeshore Preserve by practicing yoga on the beach.  Stephanie, a Yoga Instructor from Shri Yoga Center in Highland Park, will lead an hour-long Vinyasa flow yoga class. These classes focus on relaxation, balance, core work, and flow of breathing, improving your fitness while stretching, lengthening, and strengthening muscles in this beautiful Lake Michigan setting. We recommend participants have some basic experience with yoga, but modifications for beginners will be offered!

Bring a yoga mat if you have one (the instructor will provide some mats if you do not have your own) and enough water to last you for the program. Note that we will be in direct sun on the beach for the duration of the program, so also bring along any sun protection you may need. Since we will be placing our mats on the sand, you may want to bring an additional towel for underneath it.

Limited parking will be available at the Preserve’s parking lot on Patten Road.  From the parking lot, follow the signs through the Preserve to the beach where the yoga event will take place (about 1/8 mile walk on a paved path, with some stairs down to the beach).

RSVP:  The event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP no later than September 14 at or 815-701-1999.
