Fun at the Beach

C Fi 9958

Did you ever bury a buddy at the beach? This next level illusion makes it seem like someone lost their head. The sands of Sarasota county can be such a creative medium. As one walks the beach castles, turtles, writing and dolphins may be encountered. Some people build elaborate labyrinths where entering the serpentine path one might walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on bigger questions. Building a sand castle with a child is almost a right of passage... an opportunity to teach and play... to encounter challenge and triumph.

Since 1973, Siesta Beach has hosted the Annual Amateur Sand Sculpture Contest, which is now hosted by Sarasota County Play. The Siesta Key Crystal Classic happens in November when 24 artists converge on Siesta Key to compete in an amazing Master Sand Sculpting competition. The sculptors create a large community carve, 8 solo sculptures and 8 team sculptures.

Grab a shovel! Grab a bucket! Let's have fun at the beach!

Purify, An Urban Sweat Lodge

How does PURIFY, An Urban Sweat Lodge work? Our primary detox organs are the liver and kidneys; however, these organs can become overloaded and can’t rid our bodies of certain toxins. The result is that those toxins make their way into fat cells. This is where Purify comes in. Purify uses body wraps to stimulate far infrared heat energy (FIR). FIR is heat energy, similar to that of the sun, without UV radiation. It can’t be seen, but it certainly can be felt. FIR waves penetrate past layers of fatty tissue into your bloodstream to activate water molecules and push toxins out. To put it simply, in one of Purify’s body wraps, your body temperature will rise, and you will sweat! The final step includes major rehydration to replace the water molecules and ensure rejuvenation.
