STANDUP PADDLEBOARD YOGA
Come experience true flow when you practice yoga on the water! Practicing yoga on a paddleboard brings a whole new perspective to being “fully present in the moment” and experiencing balance in life. When you practice yoga on the water, transitions are slowed and core engagement and proper alignment are emphasized in order to maintain balance amid nature’s changing elements — the board becomes your mat, the birds sing your flow, and the water and wind remind us to have a sense of humor as we explore our yoga journey. Whether new to yoga or an experienced yogi, SUP Yoga promises to relax, rejuvenate, and strengthen your body, mind, and spirit as we move through a Vinyasa flow yoga practice on our paddleboards. All asanas (yoga poses) are modifiable to accommodate varying levels of paddlers and yogis!
