Wondering if you should take your yoga mat on vacation? Whether it’s a summer rental, weekend getaway or even a staycation, a packed summer schedule on Cape Cod doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your wellness routines. Stay calm and carry on with your yoga practice all summer long at these local venues with a passion for all things well and good.
Here are four places on Cape Cod where you can relax and go with the flow.
Reach new heights at Nové yoga, fitness, and wellness studio in Dennis, driven by a passion to support everyone’s inner athlete and empower a healthy community. Whether you’re training for a competition, in recovery, or just happily on summer vacation, Nové helps people of all ages and abilities unlock their potential—on the mat, on the beach, and in the studio. Rise and flow with beach yoga on the Pelham House oceanfront lawn (where you can savor a rooftop breakfast apres savasana), or at Sea St. Beach, looking out over Nantucket Sound. Join the team in-studio and virtually for a range of classes designed for every stage of your fitness and yoga journey that will keep you coming back to try them all—there’s even a drop-in run club followed by yoga for athletes and 15-minute pause & recharge mindfulness breaks! Guaranteed to make you feel Nové (new) every time.
Extend your Zen on the serene waters of Cape Cod with a private group beach or paddle board yoga class led by the local RideAway Adventures team. From kayak, paddle board, and bike rentals to kids camps and team building outings, RideAway’s mission for over a decade has been combining fun and outdoor adventure with education and conservation through one immersive experience after another. “Walk on water” with the favorite all-level SUP Yoga class that includes a quickie lesson and warm-up paddle, then anchor your board for a flow to remember. Want to extend your paddle time? Take in nature’s greatest show with the Paddle + Beach Yoga Experience and glide through Popponesset Bay at sunset and sink your toes into the sand for a beach vinyasa class. Just say “Om”.
AutoCamp Cape Cod
Bring your summer glamping dreams to life at Cape Cod’s very own AutoCamp in Falmouth, where you can strike a pose with local yoga teachers at a complimentary guest class in the mid-century modern clubhouse. Start your day with an hour-long Vinyasa sequence designed to stretch and strengthen hosted by Innerglow Yoga and set your intention for a day of summer exploring at nearby Woods Hole or local beaches. Don’t be surprised if all this communing with nature resets your internal clock! If you find yourself awake at dawn, roll out your mat for a tranquil sunrise meditation beside your luxury tent, fully outfitted Airstream, or very own tiny house Vista X Suite.
B Free Wellness
Be part of something bigger at the B Free Wellness community in Hyannis where the goal is to offer movement, mindfulness, and coaching programs to adults and kids in recovery and create a more needs-based approach to yoga and wellness practices. The studio’s thoughtfully tiered pricing structure allows clients to practice self-care based on the level of support they may need and fellow wellness seekers a chance to lend a helping hand. It’s easy to pay it forward with a class schedule that offers plenty to B grateful for— dance workouts in disguise, rock out youth programs, cardio jam sessions, and yoga and meditation classes that encourage beginners to show up just like they do!
Summer is the perfect time to connect with nature and your community for an enlivening yoga class on the beach. Check on your local studio’s seasonal beach schedule, or head to a few long-running favorite plein-air spots like Chatham Light, Poppy Spit, and Red River Beach. Relax and let Cape Cod take over!
