The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Summer on the Cheap in Montauk


4. Insider's Tip

Taking a yoga class in the Hamptons can be a pricey proposition. Not so in Montauk, where you can find classes in airy settings for as little as—nothing. Inside a pretty pavilion in Kirk Park, Jivamukti expert Jane Beltz (631-804-1748) leads by-donation classes (Monday and Friday to Sunday, 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.) often accompanied by live tambora, sitar, and flute players. Another open-air yoga class ($10) is held daily at the East Deck Motel (40 Deforest Road; 631-668-2334), located just 50 feet from the Atlantic. The sensory experience is amazing: crashing waves, sea breezes, and the intoxicating scent of wild Rosa rugosa flowers wafting over the dunes.
