Paddleboard in Grand Traverse Bay

Paddleboarding in  Grand Traverse Bay, Michigan

Last week of summer in Traverse City, MI, in Grand Traverse Bay, off of Clinch Park, West Bay. Stand Up Paddle-boarding on a beautiful calm Wednesday morning. Swells, waves, and attempted asanas make it harder. My first class was sponsored by Yen Yoga in Traverse City.

Yoga on the Beach – Solstice

Yoga on the BeachSolstice Sunset

The season’s first Yoga-on-the-Beach session in Leland, Michigan, was offered at the moment of the solstice. Three excellent yoga instructors tour the Leelanau Peninsula’s fresh-water beaches offering morning through evening yoga sessions. Amy, Angela, and Julie host appropriately paced sandy sessions at the water’s edge. After our solstice session, half the class made it into the water to cool, watch the sunset, and track the lakers heading north. If you make it to Michigan’s Traverse City area in the summer time – look them up and take your towel to the shore. The class.
