New this season at The Wauwinet, Jane Cargill teaches a yoga class on weekday mornings from 9:00-10:00. The classes take place on the hotel's Bayview Zen Deck, with the beautiful scenery pictured above. Bayview Yoga is a natural fit with the perfect setting of the spacious cedar plank Zen Deck overlooking Nantucket Bay and the grassy sand dunes of Wauwinet. The view alone makes this class a unique Nantucket experience. Jane has been working at The Wauwinet for the past two seasons, it is her first season as Spa Coordinator for Spa by the Sea, she is also a very experienced yoga instructor, teaching for 10 years. She blends strong yet soft, skillful slow flow vinyasa into her practice.
The idea of offering a yoga class to hotel guests is well aligned with The Wauwinet's intention of creating memorable experiences for those who stay there. Mats, water bottles, yoga blocks and straps are all available from the front desk, so there is no need to pack your own when staying at The Wauwinet.
Jane gears the classes to all levels, this way guests who may have years of experience, those who are new - or even just curious to try something different can all feel comfortable. A few special elements central to all Bayview Yoga classes are Intentional Breathing, which is the very foundation of yoga, and Pranayama which soothes the nervous system by creating the relaxed response, translating to a feeling of peace and ease. Nantucket Insider thinks these elements feel just right for the start of relaxing summer day at The Wauwinet!
Though Bayview Yoga classes are located at The Wauwinet, the classes are also open to guests at sister hotels, White Elephant, White Elephant Village, Jared Coffin House, The Cottages & Lofts and Nantucket Boat Basin. Private yoga classes can also be arranged. Bayview Yoga is $30 per person and offered Monday - Friday, 9-10am. For more information please call (508) 228-0145
