Yoga Elements is a destination studio centrally located along the beautiful white sand beaches of Florida Panhandle (between the beaches of 30A and Panama City at Carillon Beach). Our fully integrated “boutique” studio has all the elemental building blocks of the universe incorporated into the studio’s offerings. Our mission is to present individuals, at any health level, an opportunity to thrive beyond prior experiences and connect with community.

Co-founded by LauraLynn Jansen and Dawn Brooks, in October 2012, Yoga Elements is the culmination of their combined knowledge and passion to be of service through yoga. Their commitment was to create a place where the seeds of yoga are planted into the lives of both locals and visitors to the beaches of Bay and Fort Walton counties. Lauralynn moved on in July of 2014 to new adventures in Hawaii. Dawn is now sole owner operator of Yoga Elements with a mission to provide a space for authentic yoga teaching and practice that will benefit individuals and community. Each teacher at Yoga Elements offers classes in their focus of study and is dedicated to yoga being a part of their full life.

Yoga Elements is unique in offering classes:
– In the air (aerial)
– On the water (stand up paddleboard)
– On the earth (mat)

We strive to bring Fun and Unique offerings, to the Florida panhandle, aimed at expanding your experience of yoga. Examples of this from the last year included: all day meditation retreats, Pranassage Partner workshop, Acro Yoga Workshops, Aerial and SUP Yoga Teachers trainings.
