Did you know there is a transformative and synergistic power when yoga and nature combine? We look forward to bringing you outdoor yoga classes on our backyard pavilion. When weather isn’t permitting, we have inside yoga classes in our room with wood floors, beamed ceilings, and disappearing glass doors that open to the fresh air with lake and preserve views.

During our construction phase, you can attend a nature-filled class on the deck of instructor Ashley Marston’s home! She is located on an island, surrounded by the Braden River and her classes have been an inspiration for the nature yoga that will be provided at Four Pillars. Please contact us for more information.
There are many talented instructors in the Sarasota community. We look forward to bridging with teachers who would like to share their practice with the Lakewood Ranch community. If you’re interested in teaching at Four Pillars, we would love to hear from you! Please click here for more information.
The café will be a place where you can come during the day to relax, read or visit on the comfortable couches and chairs, work on your latest project, have a cup of coffee or tea before or after your Four Pillars services, or grab a quick healthy bite during your lunch break.
In addition to coffee and tea, our Café Menu will include healthy shakes, juices, cleanse and detox drinks, fresh fruits, raw and organic cooking. We also plan to offer international specials and more traditional café items like soups, salads, and paninis to accommodate all appetites but made with the healthiest possible ingredients.
If you’re looking for some more in depth guidance to build a healthier lifestyle, we’ll be offering nutrition counseling and healthy meal planning! Our French doors will open to a large, screened deck so you can take in a perfect view of the lake and nature preserve.
The Four Pillars Café will be the perfect place for nourishing, relaxing, reading, and connecting.
From book signings, to national speakers and planned special events, Four Pillars is bringing our community together to learn, grow and socialize!
