Treat yourself to some mind-quieting Gentle Yoga as you stretch and restore on Lake Michigan’s shore! Our practice encourages you to move slowly, allowing you to soak up the beauty of your surroundings as the sunlight warms your body and the sand slips between your toes. Gentle Yoga in Lighthouse Bay will give you the time to explore both simple and more complex principles of alignment in order to create a safer, stronger and more relaxed practice. Stunning views of both Muskegon Pier Light and Muskegon Breakwater Light will help you to hold certain gentle postures for extended periods of restoration.  Experience the gentle lapping waves of Lake Michigan as the sound track for your practice on the silky smooth sands of award-winning Pere Marquette Beach.

Gentle Beach Yoga in Lighthouse Bay is an appropriate class for all ages and levels and will meet you where you are, cultivating self-care with respect for student’s injuries and limitations. A firm believer that anyone who can breathe can benefit from Yoga, Cindy Beth infuses her passion for the practice through each pose, offering gentle and uplifting cues with special emphasis on breath, balance, playfulness, relaxation and the enjoyment of remaining present.

* Classes are $10 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the lighthouse restoration efforts of the nonprofit Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy, whose mission is to preserve and promote Muskegon’s Lights and other lighthouses. Participants are welcomed to climb the Muskegon South Pierhead Light tower at a discounted price immediately following class.
