Health Fitness and Yoga in Saint Augustine

SAM_5331 (2)Are you looking to make a healthy lifestyle change? Whether you’re visiting St. Augustine or  have lived here all your life, here’s a few great ideas to make exercise fun.

 

 

Do you practice yoga regularly or are you looking to try it and don’t know how to start? City Wellness offers some great classes for all levels including beginners. If you have never taken yoga before, they have an unlimited monthly package for $30.00 for your 1st month.  I actually started taking yoga with this package several years ago. My husband, my dad, and my stepmom have all done it too. It’s a fantastic value. If you’re more experienced with  yoga you can use the same package to try City Wellness’ wide variety of classes. I guarantee you will love the teachers in the studio and you’ll be hooked.

 

 

If you really want to connect with nature, they offer full moon yoga classes on the beach. What a fabulous experience this is.SAM_5335

If you like Beach yoga, they offer private and semi private classes on the beach starting at $80 a session. They will meet you any place on the beach from Vilano Beach out to Crescent Beach.  Give them a call for more information and to schedule your yoga on the beach experience.

 

 

 

How about stand up paddle boarding to get a little exercise ? St. Augustine has plenty of places to rent stand up paddle boards for a day out on the water.  If you have nohf1 experience and are looking for some calm waters to try this great sport,  I recommend Anastasia Water Sports in  Anastasia State Park. You can rent boards here  on the calm waters of Salt Run.  They will also give you a few minutes of instruction before you head out on your own. Pit Surf Shop offers rentals and lessons as does Lets Go Stand Up. For info and rates, give them a call.
