Laura Winholt, owner of Om Cat Yoga and lead instructor on Daufuskie, is an E-RYT 500 hour registered Anusara Yoga teacher.  Anusara yoga, which means “flowing with grace”, is grounded in inner and outer body alignment, and Laura has a particular focus on balanced action. She has been leading yoga classes on Daufuskie for over a decade!


Yoga classes on Daufuskie Island are currently offered at the Melrose Fitness Center twice a week; Sundays 9:30-10:30am, and Thursdays 4:30-5:30pm.  The Thursday class is taught by Renee Harding, who blends a variety of yoga styles including Anusara, Kripalu, and Thai Yoga techniques.  Classes are $10 when you use a pre-purchased class pass, and $13 for drop-ins.  All you need to bring is your mind, body, and spirit — mats and props are set up for you ahead of time.  A light treat of chocolate or fruit is provided at the end of the class.  Private classes are offered upon request.
