St. Croix is a lovely place for a wedding. The island has many amenities and services to make your big day extra special — including Ha’Penny Bay Beach Club as a venue.

One of our many Club member benefits is the opportunity to host private events with the beautiful Caribbean as the backdrop. Corinne Farinola, owner of STX Weddings, has created magical events here at the Club, including this wedding reception complete with mocko jumbies as special guests!

Corinne’s table settings of fresh flowers and elegant linens were a perfect compliment to Ha’Penny’s charming pink archways. A tent was set up, complete with romantic twinkling lights, to accommodate additional guests. And we just love how Kelly Greer captured the brilliant cobalt dusk sky during the father’s speech.

What better way to start your day than a gentle yoga class overlooking the Caribbean in the shade of the Ha’Penny Clubhouse with a wonderful sea breeze?

Sunshine Yoga with Shera is Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9am, and is open to the public. Class is free for Ha’Penny Bay Beach Club members and $15 for non-members (a 6-class card is $75).

Classes are a blend of all the different yoga techniques into a smooth vinyassa flow where everyone can find their comfort level. Friday classes have been adapted to a chair so that all are welcome.

Shera Elvins has been dancing since she was a teenager and teaching since college. She moved to St. Croix in 1995 to work on a charter boat and decided to stick around. After a life-threatening illness at the end of the century, she found yoga as a rehabilitation.

“I’ve been teaching since 2008, with Ha’Penny being the beginning steps of bringing yoga to Every Body.”
