Natural Awakenings of the Coastal Carolinas

Community Grows in North Myrtle Beach Yoga Garden

Vintage Violette Garden Yoga

Though the practice of yoga leads us on an inner journey through the Self and to the Self, we needn’t take this journey alone. Supporting each other in practice and meeting one another in the space of sacred curiosity is part of the ‘union’ of yoga,” comments local yoga teacher and IIN healthy coach Hillary Carlisle. She seeks to nurture this union by offering classes that allow students to explore yoga through body movement, meditation and self-reflection practices and through community.

After relocating from Wilmington to North Myrtle Beach (NMB), Carlisle saw that her yoga-hearted, millennial peers shared her curiosity and love of yoga, but lacked a local community to connect and practice with in that area. With the blessing and  shared vision of local businesswoman Violette Malekos, she began teaching classes in the garden of boutique and event space, Vintage Violette, and in this garden a community has grown. 

Carlisle invites people to share their yoga journey and connect with the NMB community and online with her Yoga Lifestyle e-Course. “Come with  curiosity, leave with peace and be well,” says Carlisle. Learn more about her health coaching services as well by visiting her website or meet her at the Waccamaw Farmers’ Markets selling her famous Amaze Balls, gluten and dairy-free protein treats.
