Jogging

Tonight, Thursday, January 3rd, you can join a group of West Palm Beach joggers for a scenic 3.5-mile run. The group meets at the Publix steps at Rosemary and Fern Street. You should bring a clean shirt in case you decide to stay for a drink or dinner at West Palm Brewery on Evernia after the run!

Also, don't forget a few quarters since parking on the street is probably the easiest thing to do. But don’t worry, the meters only go until 7pm north of Publix you only need a few. The course you’ll be jogging is perfect for runners of all skill levels, on it you’ll see scenic views of the Intracoastal, the ocean and Palm Beach Island.

Sunset Beach Yoga will happen this Sunday on Delray Beach from 4:00pm – 5:30pm. The session will be guided (but also open to self-practice) and will last about 80 minutes. Several techniques will be practiced including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Asana and Pranayama practice, and the session will finish in a Savasana (meditation- laying down.)

Start times may vary slightly depending on season and sunset time.

It should come as no surprise to those of us living in South Florida, but the beach, and specifically ocean water, is good for you! And that’s not just some old wives’ tale, it’s backed by science. Here are a few of the health benefits of living by/going to the beach.

The Ocean Is Good For Your Skin

Waves Are Good For Your Mental Health

Everybody knows that the sound of the sea is therapeutic. The white noise of waves breaking on the rocks relaxes our brains and stimulates the production of feel-good chemicals in our body,
