Intelligent Yoga for Everyone
Lowcountry Yoga is a boutique studio that combines the spirit of the lowcountry with the practice of yoga. In exquisite form, the lowcountry integrates old and new. Similarly, Lowcountry Yoga integrates the mechanics and philosophy of yoga, connecting the physical with the mental and emotional. In every class, we focus on building heat inside the body to build strength and stretch our bodies to new limits. Whether we use weights or no weights, go fast or slow, the goal is to always connect with our minds, bodies and surroundings.
Here you will find what you need. There are times when you need to let it all out through soul-pouring sweat and there are times when you need slow, deliberate movement to take you to places you didn’t expect. Sometimes you just need some fun and a place to get away. Whatever you need – we have the class for you!
Owner Erica Lindquist has been practicing yoga for over 15 years. Originally practicing as a way to incorporate stretching into her running program, she found the practice to be a place where she was able to reduce stress and find balance, making her a better mom, wife and friend. She created Lowcountry Yoga to be a space where all can find what they need through their practice.
Yoga is not complicated. It is a philosophy, a practice, a community. It does not need to be over-thought, over-complicated or over-sold. Yoga simply is. It is your breath. It is your movement. It is your silence.
At Lowcountry Yoga, we honor and respect the mind and body connection. They are not two separate components of who we are — they are ONE.
• What we think impacts how we act
• How we act impacts how we feel
• What we feel impacts how we think
Every Lowcountry Yoga class is more than exercise. Here we strive to provide a welcoming space where you can connect your physical practice to your mental and emotional needs.
Things just feel right when they are aligned.
Body mechanics are the focus of this class. Through slow movement and longer holds, this class will challenge your muscles to hold your body in proper alignment and stretch deeply to increase flexibility. It may sound easy, but this class will challenge everyone!
The Move class comes in two forms:
FAST & HOT is a heated power Vinyasa class that will get you sweaty and energized. In this class, you will follow a traditional flow structure incorporating breath to movement that will lengthen and stretch your muscles while working up to a peak pose.
SLOW & COMFORTABLE also follows a traditional flow structure which integrates the holding of poses with smooth transitions. However, this class will move at a slow to moderate pace so that positions can be held for a longer period of time. The purpose of this class is to encourage a deeper stretch for the body while still getting a full body work-out. The room will be lightly heated for this class.
It’s good to be powerful!
STRENGTH: FOUNDATION AND FUNCTION focuses on building strength of your foundation — it will take you from movement on the mat to movement in life. Utilizing weights, resistance bands and/or your own body isometrics, we will help you move more confidently in a way that enhances performance and reduces the risk of injury in other activities. These exercises incorporate movements from pilates, barre and strength training, all of which require control and precision. These movements are designed to enhance flexibility and increase core endurance. Whether you sit a lot throughout the day, have had an injury — or are simply a human — building strength in the areas that help you function in your daily life can help you lead a healthier and happier life.
STRENGTH: HIIT & YOGA will push your body and mind to limits that you didn’t think were possible — AND YOU WILL LOVE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY! This class moves fast, integrating yoga, HIIT and weights. Bring a towel.
Inhale…. and Exhale….
Pranayama — or Yogic Breathing — is the practice of breathe regulation. Focused attention on how we breathe can regulate blood pressure, improve immunity and lung health, increase relaxation, decrease stress and help you sleep better. While we do it everyday, this class will teach specific techniques to help us do it better. The breathing exercises will leave you energized, calm and focused. This is a seated class, bring any props that allow you to sit comfortably for an extended period of time.
Rest & Reset
Relaxation and meditation are key to a healthy mind and body. Whether you take a late morning Yoga Nidra class in order to be more alert and effective during the second half of the day or a Yin Yoga class in the evening to promote a restful sleep, these classes are a true joy.

The Human Experience
We're truly one and ancient words and tales can guide us
...if we pause just enough to listen.
Yoga and Greek mythology have many similarities. They both offer insights into the human experience and their stories and philosophies provide lessons on how to live a meaningful life.
The Retreat Experience
In this retreat, we will explore these similarities, tie their lessons into our yoga practice, explore the history of Greece & beauty of Mykonos, connect with each other & ourselves, reflect on what we have learned - all with the hope that we each leave feeling refreshed, in-tune with ourselves and re-energized for the next steps of our individual journeys.
"A yoga retreat is a precious opportunity to disconnect from the noise of the modern world and reconnect with your inner self."
