On April 6th Kris Hleuka of Loving Light Yoga is set to complete a streak of 31 consecutive days leading fellow yoga enthusiasts in their regularly-scheduled morning yoga practice on Englewood Beach.  Spelling for Loving Light owners Lata and Robert Coykendall, who after 15 years decided to actually take a vacation, Hleuka was asked to pinch hit for them during what turned out to be a record-breaking heat wave.

"One should almost always answer 'yes' when the universe offers an opportunity," she said, paraphrasing from Michael Singer's book The Surrender Experiment. "When you do that, you never know what spectacular and miraculous things will happen."

Hleuka accepted the challenge in what Singer might have called the Hot Summer Beach Yoga Experiment.  She had no doubts that she would make it for 31 days in a row, confident that her long stint of practicing, and then teaching yoga would see her through.

"Yoga is a great way for people to improve their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being," she said, a thought echoed by Lynn Lohman, a regular beach yoga attendee who (so far) has made it to Hleuka's beach yoga classes almost every morning for 23 out of 24 days in a row.  "I feel uplifted and love how it starts my day – I look forward to it," says Lohman, who has no doubt the leader of the class would see it through all 31 days.  "Her determination is inspiring," Lohman said.

Given the unprecedented heat in what will no doubt go down in history as the mean summer season of 2023, the prospect that records for most consecutive days for attending beach yoga, as well as attendance under the brutal Florida sun, are likely to be broken on Englewood beach should not be that surprising.  After all, during their practice would-be yogis learn about a breathing method that helps to cool down their bodies, pretend to dive into cool waters with a swimmer's pose, or take a real dip into the refreshing waters of the gulf after their yoga practice.

Those who want to learn how to cool down even on the hottest summer days should don their swimsuits, grab a sheet, towel or yoga blanket, and make it down to Englewood beach every day, starting at 8:30 AM.  Get there any morning until August 6th, and Kris Hleuka will show you how.
