CAYUGA SUP YOGA AT PADDLE-N-MORE
Teaching standup paddleboard (SUP) yoga in Ithaca and on Cayuga Lake since 2012, Cayuga SUP Yoga instructors offer the Finger Lakes region’s only on-lake paddleboard yoga classes. Join us at our three Paddle-n-More locations beginning in June each summer — Stewart Park, Myers Park, and Taughannock Falls State Park!
Come experience true flow in our floating yoga classes! 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 full yoga practice on our paddleboards. All Asanas (yoga poses) are modifiable and optional to accommodate varying levels of paddlers and yogis!
Your safety is our priority! All Cayuga SUP Yoga instructors are ACA-certified paddleboard instructors. The ACA National Paddlesports Instruction Program has been acknowledged as the “gold standard” of paddlesports education throughout the United States for more than 40 years. In addition, each is a Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher (RYT 200) with comprehensive knowledge and additional integrated training as needed to instruct SUP yoga.

This Vinyasa style class is designed to center you in gratitude and peace while awakening you for your day! Always responsive to Mother Nature’s gifts, on glassy mornings we may hold class in the middle of the lake (no anchors needed) floating – flowing – in quiet tranquility.
