Summer is practically synonymous with long, lazy days of beach lounging. But if you want to make your beach trips just the slightest bit less lazy, you’ve come to the right place. We found seven spots you can take beach yoga—then get right back to your day of relaxation.
1. Radiant Yoga
South Boston studio Radiant Yoga teaches a class at Castle Island’s Pleasure Bay every Sunday at 9 a.m. By the time your friends finish brunch, you’ll have worked out and staked out a prime beach spot.
$17, Sundays, 9 a.m. Castle Island, Pleasure Bay, Boston, radiantyogaboston.com.
2. East Side Yoga and Fitness
Rise early on Sundays for 8 a.m. yoga on Carson Beach, at the end of H Street. Classes are $10 and cash only, so make sure you hit the ATM the day before.
