For me, the beach is calming even without yoga, but if you’re the least bit sensitive to atmosphere and surroundings, yoga on the beach is about as calm and centered as you can get. Cape May’s local yoga maven (or is that guru?) is Karen Bosna. She leads sessions on the beach both in the morning and the evening, both on the ocean and the bay. There are morning sessions held on the sand each weekend right behind our new Convention Hall, only a couple of blocks from Leith Hall. There are both morning and evening classes near the Cape May lighthouse; and sessions at the park along the canal in North Cape May. You can chill in all sorts of waterside settings. Balance Pilates also hosts Yoga classes both on the lawn at the Inn of Cape May across the street from Leith Hall and on the beach at Jackson Street several times a week.
You could also combine yoga on the beach with our De-Stress Holiday package at Leith Hall. This special offer includes two one-hour massages, a gift certificate towards dinner at Aleathea’s, a bottle of sparkling wine and Elan’s home-made chocolate truffles. With all of this meditation, calming and luxury combined, when you get home people will mistake you for the Dalai Lama.
