Beach Yoga is a Donation

The donation provides Loving Light Yoga to teach the classes on the beach by paying a monthly Vendor Fee to Charlotte County. 
This also helps to cover equipment and insurance needed at the beach for the classes and will help to provide yoga classes to families that might not be able to afford it.
All are Welcome!
This helps us to give the Gift of Yoga to Every Body!

"Another experience opening the mind and body.  A room filled with people; silent, 
alone, together lead by two dedicated yogis.  A cocoon, protecting us for a short
time from the reality of life.  Opening our higher selves to the gift of giving, caring
and understanding.  Taking care of one's self enabling us to continue our journey.
A true teacher reflects on past, present and future classes, adds subtracts and enriches the lessons.
 Above all takes great notice of the student's level.  Lata accomplishes all of the above through mindfulness and lengthy planning.  It is greatly appreciated".

Thank you for the gifts,
Joyce, Englewood, Fl

"Be Happy.... Be Well.... PRACTICE YOGA!"

Awaken your Authentic Power - Recognize that the other person is you.....she is me - he is me - that essence within that person is you!

"Lata, first let me tell you "Thank you" "Thank you" for introducing me to Yoga Nidra!  Since I loved the final relaxation portion of Beach Yoga, I knew I wanted to try the longer, complete relaxation of Yoga Nidra.  I was very pleasantly surprised!  After each Yoga Nidra I attend, my mind, body, and spirit feels so calm, peaceful, and totally relaxed!  I recommend  your Yoga Nidra to anyone who wants to learn how to relax more or to those who already know how to relax because it is an extremely enjoyable experience!  Love & Thanks "  ~~Barbie Limbaugh, Englewood / Port Charlotte, FL

amazing stories!!!!!!   

Guidelines & Recommendations:

Please let your instructor know of any health concerns, injury, pain or if you are pregnant. Dress in comfortable clothing and bring water.  Bring a ex-large towel or blanket or sheet.  Give yourself space to roll from side to side.

Let your practice meet you where you are, don't push or strain.  Remember this is your practice, honor your body and don't force your body to someone else's pose. This is your personal practice, all bodies are different.  Modify when you need too, rest when you need to and challenge yourself if you are able to.

Let go of expectations, judgement or competition. Stay present moment to moment and use your most powerful tool, your breath to help you ease into a pose, surrender into sensations, relax and let go.   Move slowly and  at your own pace, notice all sensations and Breathe. 

        Enjoy your practice and remember, Yoga is supposed to be fun!

"I was vacationing this past week on Manasota Key and attended Beach Yoga all week!  I just wanted to tell you how wonderful it was.  Lata & Robert are awesome!!  I was able to attend a few classes last year and could not wait to get back to it this year.  It was the highlight of my morning.  I love yoga and I love your passion for yoga as well!  Thank You, Karen Brenner, Ga

SUN SALUTATIONS on Englewood Beach with Lata

Yoga's sun salutations are among the most refined and effective movement meditations for health and well-being ever created. Originally practiced to connect to the sun's vitality, this precise combination of forward bends, backbends, and inversions awakens the breath and promotes circulation and inner balance through the flow of prana shakti—our creative life force.  Practicing Sun Salutations in the morning is a wonderful way to awaken your body, to stretch, to say good morning to each of your muscles.  Sun Salutations give you a lot of power. It’s an energetic sequence designed to make you strong, powerful, glowing, and confident.

Tuesday  & Thursday at 7:45am-8:15am


"Humor is apart of Lata's classes to keep us from getting too serious. If Breath of Joy or Lion pose are introduced into a class, it's a sign that the group is taking themselves too seriously."               ~~Nancy K. 

Sunset Yoga!!! 

Sunset is a magical time. Practicing yoga on the beach as we watch the sun set over the ocean is a truly transformative and beautiful experience. An evening yoga practice helps us to slow down, focus inward, and gently transition from day to night.
lax & Re-New as you release the stresses of the day. Clear your mind & move your body with a flow of yoga postures, deep breathing and gentle stretching as you soothe your soul in a moving meditation while the sun sets.

"I have been practicing yoga for well over thirty years and have worked with many yoga instructors.  In my opinion, the absolute best and most inspiring yoga instructor is Lata at Loving Light Yoga.  Whether I am experiencing the beauty and pure joy of Yoga on the Beach, the Yoga for Well-Being at the studio, the complete workout of Infused Yoga or the total relaxation of Yoga Nidra, I have found my current yoga practice with Lata to be a truly life-changing experience."

Restorative Yoga with Lata
11:00am Friday

Restorative yoga offers the potential for deep relaxation and deliberate stillness while holding a posture with the support of a prop (blanket, bolster, block or wall). This practice will encourage physical and emotional healing and encourage connection of mind and body for a profound sense of inner peace and overall well being. Holding the supported postures for a longer period of time will invite a deeper relaxation in the muscles and the deep connective tissues of the body where most of the tightness and tension is stored. You are guaranteed to cultivate a sense of spaciousness and levity!

Yoga for Health & Vitality......Yoga is for Everyone & Every Age!

The Goal of Yoga:

The Yoga pose is not the goal.  
Becoming flexible is not the goal.
Standing on your hands is not the goal.

The goal is to create space where you were once stuck
To Unveil layers of protection you’ve built around your heart.
To Appreciate your body & become aware of the mind & the noise it creates.
To make peace with who you are.
The goal is to Love…………You!

Come to your yoga mat to feel; not to accomplish.
Shift your focus & your heart will grow.

~~Rachel Brathen

Read below some amazing testimonials from Yoga students.


"I am a young senior of 66 yrs. and after 8 years of CURVES, was forced to quit due to my inability to perform the routines on the exercise equipment and still experiencing numbness in my feet and hands, shooting pain down my legs, imbalance and difficulty in walking and could not cross my legs.
I suffer from Stenosis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis & High Blood Pressure.
However, since Feb. 2011 I have been participating in yoga classes with Lata at the Loving Light Yoga Studio.  I have seen drastic changes in my overall condition.

I feel less "achy" my balance has improved, fewer bouts of shooting pain & less numbness in my feet. I have noticed a decrease in my weight and over all toning in my mid-section.  I now attend 5 classes per week & believe that it is the subtle stretching & movement of Yoga that have contributed to my overall increased well-
Earlene Campbell, Englewood, Fl

"We were introduced by a neighbor to yoga on the beach over a year ago. We are retirees in our 60s and we love the beach! It is so much nicer doing yoga there then a class or gym. We can look up at the blue sky as Lata invites us to settle into the earth and breathe with sounds of the waves, birds, and wind. Her instructions are useful to our practice and her voice soothes us to invite our entry into our inner world. We have had earlier experiences with yoga, but had not had the consistency until now. Lata's class on the beach has enabled us to establish a daily practice that aids us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually."

~~Bruce & Cynthia Vernon



I have enjoyed every minute of your Yoga classes and sessions.  I have returned to Minnesota and will not be with you again until Jan 2013.  My wishes are that you continue to be successful with your business and your lives.  Your Yoga reassurances are wonderful and the mood you set is great.Thank you for letting me be a part of this great situation.    Mary Kaye Robertson

What an amazing winter, due in large to your presence. The spectacular yoga and support beyond measure.  You both are so gracious and talented in your field, especially reading the needs of those you encounter and care for.
Nancy K - Michigan

I just wanted to thank you for a great morning. I have been a Nurse for 33 years and have studied many forms of medicine.  Today you exhibited a wonderful healing voice and skill level that I consider to be of a Master.  I hold in great honor those who can offer healing, peace, and comfort to those in need.
Thank you and Bless you, Kat

Do to the many dis-ease in my life I stopped for 7 years doing yoga.  In the past I had brilliant yoga teachers, but Lata has been the best.  Lata has taught me to be patient & gentle with myself and gave me hope in getting better in time.  I like Lata's approach in teaching yoga, in a very short time it has been very satisfying & showing great results.  When I start yoga with Lata I had high cholesterol, diabetes, with dangerous sugar levels, which sent me many times to the hospital with rapid heart beats, which made it worst having a metallic valve in me.     

I decided that I was not going
to let fear take a hold on me.

I started yoga with Lata.  I did fear that I would not be able to practice yoga since my ligaments & veins had been severed through many parts in my body due to the robotic heart surgery that I had.

I was amazed, in one month I already feel my body responding beautifully.  I am beginning to feel vitality and feel better.  I received from my Doctor my lab results & my cholesterol level decreased, my sugar levels were normal and
my diabetes reversed. Better yet, no more rapid heart beats.

Thank you Lata for your gentle guidance & understanding.
Also, because of your sense of humor & charisma, I am always looking forward to your classes.
Thank you for your Light Energy.
BB, Englewood, Fl


"Loving Light Yoga has made an everlasting, remarkable & positive change in my life. Through Lata's loving and Compassionate hand, I have become more devoted to my yoga practice, experienced extreme deep relaxation therapy, embellished in rain drop therapy, learned personalized healing and exercise techniques during private yoga therapy sessions, and grown spiritually just by knowing this lovely and very gifted teacher.
We are so very fortunate to live so close to this very special person"

~~ Beth in Venice, Florida


A wonderful Testimonal by Janice Williams, Englewood, Fl.

Two friends were sitting at my kitchen table the other day and the subject turned to Yoga. One of them, Anne, had never experienced Yoga with Lata and she was working with another instructor and telling us they were doing kundalini practice and she asked me what kind of Yoga we were doing?

I thought about it for a second and replied "
It's the kind of Yoga where you feel you are being lovingly held through each pose, guided in each phase of breath and completely nurtured in your practice so you find yourself capable of melding mind, body, spirit in ways you never imagined!"

I closed my eyes and went back to a day at beach Yoga. I believe it was the very beginning of class. I remember, as we were lying on the soft warm sand with the relaxing sea sounds enveloping us, Lata described our practice being supported by the Earth and uniquely informed by our own highest consent. In that instance I could feel a sentience from deep beneath me fully supporting my being and connecting with my True Self with a powerful pulsating frequency. It was something very familiar that I had lost touch with and that I can only describe as soul nourishment. On that particular day and on many other occasions I can recall, Lata has been able to tap into other dimemsions and make their gifts easily accessible to all of us with her vivid guided imagery, expressive voice and mastery of the art of yoga. Many times I find myself being embraced by the Universe and able to energetically open to the flow of life moving through from unseen realms. I walk away from these sessions filled with joy and
enthusiasm. I also find I am able to "see" and utilize this flow of life in my everday experience and private practice.

I am able to remain calm when that is needed. I am able to open my heart with wild abandon when that is how I feel, and I also feel totally protected and safe doing the most outrageous things! For the first time since I was a kid I have found myself on several occasions laughing so hard I am crying.

Reflecting on the original question now, I am smiling. Anne probably wanted to know if it was hatha yoga, power yoga, asht-anga yoga or another name for the myriad of yogic forms that you may find today.

I guess you could call it "Loving Light Yoga" and that sometimes mere words can never describe it all.

So I hope my friend Anne, and maybe you too, will join us at
"Loving Light studio or at Englewood Beach"
and experience what this yoga can do for your day; and much more Your Life!

Become part of the wonderful community circle that is growing around our yoga practice here in Englewood as we remember who we truly are and just how special that is

Namaste.......The divine light in me honors the divine light in you.


"As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who-you-really-are.  And in doing so you will utilize your profound freedom.  Seek joy first and all of the growth that you could ever imagine will come joyously and abundantly unto you."
