Manhanset Chapel

Before bending over backwards to rush to every summer activity, morning yoga at the tranquil Manhanset Chapel might be the perfect way to start the day.

Led by yoga gurus Michelle Mankins and Joseph Alexander, the classes at 24 North Ferry Road promise to inspire peace and cultivate self-awareness. Michelle’s classes are a combination of slower-paced Vinyasa and alignment-based Hatha. In her words, “Yoga is our way back into connection — with ourselves, with each other and with our world.”
