About Us


Yoga for All

At Kure Beach Yoga we strive to make yoga accessible for all physically and financially.  Our classes are held either on the beach just north of the Pier, on the stage at the Oceanfront Park or inside the clean & modern Kure Beach Community Center, located just one block from the Atlantic Ocean.  We’re also just a short drive or bike ride from Carolina Beach, NC.  Whether your an Island local or visiting our beautiful beaches on Pleasure Island, we’d love to have you join us for a class.  With new covid-19 standards, we now require pre-registration for all of our classes.  This is managed via class ticket sales on Eventbrite.  We update our schedule weekly and post on our Facebook page.  All are welcome!  


Weekly Schedule

Class descriptions:

Our classes are held on the beach, at the Oceanfront Park stage or in the Kure Beach Community Center (check when you sign up for a class), are an hour long and require Pre-registration as we are limited to a group of 10.

Vinyasa and Slow Flow classes connect movement with breath.  Well balanced classes with a variety of postures and playlists. Go with the flow!  Options are provided for all levels of students both beginners and advanced.          

Gentle Yoga is perfect for the beginner, Seniors or those just wanting to slow it all down. Pay what you can or use your punch card (Mondays 6:30pm)

Classical Yoga is our alignment based ‘no flow’ class where all levels of students (include beginners) are welcome. Postures are held for longer periods of time with more time to align the body and breath in each pose. This class can be challenging but in a way the student can easily modify if needed. (Wednesday 9:15am)

Reggae Flow is an hour of creative vinyasa flow set to awesome reggae music. If you’re looking for a mid week pick me up with head to toe stretches and a little bit of a sweat-this ones for you.  (Wednesday 6:30pm)

Stretch and Restore will have you feeling like you just had a full body massage at a fraction of the price.  A great class for beginners and a wonderful compliment to your vinyasa practice. This class is like a much needed pause button.  Just relax and breathe.  (Monday 10:30am & Thursday 3:45pm)

Beachfront Yoga allows you to match your breath with the rhythm of the waves while you  softly flow between postures. Pure bliss. All levels. (Thursday 7:30am at the Beach!)
