What Island Yoga is Doing
Effective Monday, March 16th, class sizes will be limited to 10 people (or fewer) to help with social distancing.
At Island Yoga, the health of our clients and staff is our top priority. We are taking many precautions to prevent the spread of germs including sanitizing surfaces before and after classes, deep cleaning the bathroom, and suggesting you bring your own props (ours are clean, but just as an extra precaution).
Feel free to bring your own mat and towel to serve as a barrier between yourself and props. We will be offering individual towels for cleaning rental mats in between uses. Paper towels will be used in the bathrooms.
Please sign up in advance for classes. There will be a waitlist, once capacity has been hit. If you do not pre-register, you may not be able to take class.
Please bring your own mat to class.
We will still offer mat rentals, but please bring your own, if you can.
Extra cleaning is taking place before and after every class. We are doing everything we can to keep your studio a clean, safe place for you to be.
Island Yoga Mission Statement
Island Yoga is Hilton Head Island’s ultimate relaxation destination, helping you relax your mind, reset your body, and restore your spirit. Our studio offerings are designed for those who have not taken a single class and those you have completed over a hundred. Every class is beginner-accessible, senior-friendly, and conducted at a comfortable, (non-hot) temperature.
“Am I too old/injured/tight/out of shape for yoga?”
Saying you are too (fill in the blank) for yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to take a shower. It’s exactly why we practice! It’s also the reason it’s called a “practice” and not a “perfect.” Yoga is about the journey, not the destination. The first step is taking the first step. Most of our clients started yoga after retirement and come from all walks of life, often with a number of conditions and injuries. Contact us today and take our injury questionnaire to help us learn more about you.
“I’m just not a ‘yoga person’”
The unsustainable “no pain, no gain” mindset comes from a place of expectation, goals, and results. The yogic path is approaching wellness from a place of ease and grace and it is this way, lasting and meaningful change is created. At Island Yoga, it is not about pushing harder or coming from a place of results-driven rewards: less is more especially when too much is counterproductive.
EVERY body is a yoga body and often the hardest part is simply showing up. We provide you with everything you need at our studio, just come with comfy clothes, no expectations, and an open mind and heart. We are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year to help you relax, reset and restore.
“I am too much of an overthinker for yoga!”
Overstimulation in Western culture can make it easy to become out of touch with the authentic self, and excessive mental chatter is all too common. Yoga is a moving meditation, and with conscious breathwork, it becomes easier to approach life with greater calm and a sense of human connection. Island Yoga can help.
“What if I’m the worst person in the room?”
“I have no idea where to begin when it comes to this sort of thing!”
“Everyone is going to be staring at me because I’m new…I don’t want to look ridiculous.”
If you have never stepped on the mat before, you’re in good company. More often than not, your very first class is someone else’s very first class, too. Everyone is focused on his or her own practice, nobody is judging you, and we have the very best teachers to help you with everything you need to know for a great session. At Island Yoga, we strive to help you feel at home.
“How is yoga different than stretching at home or doing a gym workout?”
Yoga is not a workout: it’s a body-breath connection that is taken off the mat, with benefits enjoyed long after you practice. Looking and feeling fitter is a happy byproduct of yoga, but more importantly, it’s about creating sustainable change in your body and peace for your mind.
Whatever it is you love to do, yoga can help you do it for longer, with more balance, and with greater mental clarity. The yoga postures or asanas help us practice self-awareness in every other aspect of our lives. All of us favor one side of the body more than the other, and with regular practice, we mindfully rectify these imbalances.
Yoga teachers are not trainers: we have spent hours cultivating a craft that is specific to creating sustainable change which transcends the physical body. While a home practice is certainly beneficial, Island Yoga teachers are not only supremely qualified to helping you practice with good form, the integrity of our message is one of approaching the postures in loving kindness.
The studio is also not a gym: it’s a sacred, quiet space. At Island Yoga, there are no bright lights and loud music to bombard the senses. This is not a cute clothes competition or a place where newcomers feel excluded and confused by fast-paced, disconnected instructors.
Island yoga is an engaging space for all levels of practice. Crystal is welcoming and inclusive. I’ve been growing in my practice for over a year since moving here and have made many friends.
I love all the props available to assist me with my needs as someone who has suffered injuries, it's nice to know that I can do it too.
Crystal is a wonderful instructor who makes every class unique and rewarding. I am thrilled that I found this studio and this terrific teacher.
I could not be more excited to find this studio. Crystal is so knowledgeable and welcoming. Island Yoga is an amazing place to re-center and renew during vacation!
I had a great experience at Island Yoga. Crystal is an excellent instructor and the studio is very cozy. I will definitely be back!
Crystal was super responsive and accommodating to our brief girls trip to Hilton Head. Great spirit! Namaste!
