Here is what’s happening on the Key for SEPTEMBER:

ON THE BEACH…

Explore the joy of movement on Siesta Key beach each week.  Did you know that Sarasota’s holistic community believes our gorgeous white sand has a concentration of energy that maximizes the ability to heal physically and emotionally?  They credit this energy to our sand’s history and its makeup (99.9% quartz).  It’s no wonder you’ll find a class taking place on the beach, on any given day, to help participants connect with themselves.  While you’re here, why not take some time for yourself with a class on our cooling mystical sand.  The following classes/events take place on the beach every week:
