Anna Maria Island is a feel-good kind of getaway. It’s relaxing. Laid back. Like a massage for your soul.

Nestled at the southern mouth of Tampa Bay, the barrier island is a sweet slice of old-time Florida. To call it “small” is an understatement; only seven miles long, it’s so narrow you can often see the Gulf and bay at the same time.

It’s a place without high rises, where you can nosh on seafood in your flip-flops right by the beach in a rustic café, or rent a Hobie Cat and sail into the emerald colored waters of the gulf.

I can’t imagine a more perfect place to practice beach yoga.

You can enjoy Yoga on the Beach -- just as long as Ma Nature cooperates with good weather, thanks to Island Yoga Space. Call  941-224-0292 for more information.
