Historic "Seven Seas Cottage" at Newton Park

Note:  Classes at Chapel By The Sea will resume Wednesdays at 2pm on January 10th.  This is a great option for beginners or those who have been away from Yoga to get "back in".          

I will be giving a free lecture "Yoga For Osteoporosis" at the Beach Public Library on Monday, January 22 at 1:30 PM.  See you there!

A "Joyful Living Retreat" is being presented by the Town Of Fort Myers Beach January 26 - 28! I will be teaching Yoga.  Click here for the flyer.  The retreat is limited to only twelve so sign up now!

Note:  DiamondHead is renovating its activities rooms and Yoga classes have come to an end there after more than 20 years.  I have added a Wednesday 8:30 - 9:30am class at the Seven Seas Cottage at Newton Park.  I will honor pre-purchased classes from DiamondHead there and at the Tuesday evening class.   

YOGA SUTRAS:  Tuesdays, I lead a study group on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali at AHA! (Health & Harmony Center).  Class is from 8:45am to 9:20.  There is no cost but students should bring a Sutra book of their choice. All are welcome to sample or join this fascinating study.

Privates can be arranged by emailing me at

                                      Ft Myers Beach Yoga! 

     Hi, I'm Susan Carter and I live and teach Yoga on Ft Myers Beach, Florida.  Whether you are local or visiting this beautiful island, all levels and ages are welcome at my classes.  Mats and some props are available in class. Students are encouraged to bring any props they have.

     I am a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and Certified Yoga Therapist with seventeen years teaching experience. My classes focus on creating space and alignment in the body and the careful sequencing of poses.

     Iyengar Yoga is not yoga flow; poses are held to allow students to penetrate deeply into the essence of what each pose has to offer.  I use props when appropriate to help students get immediate benefits.  

     Lastly, I do accept credit cards for your convenience.
