What is SUP Yoga?
Simply put, yoga that takes place on a stand up paddleboard on the water.
SUP yoga is an excellent way to improve core strength, train balance, and target the smaller muscles that may be neglected or overlooked in other forms of exercise, including a yoga practice on land. Because the paddle board is an unstable surface, your body is constantly adjusting to find balance. It is necessary to stay focused, have a steady gaze, move slowly and mindfully from one posture to another.
Practicing yoga on the water is both an invigorating and relaxing experience. SUP yoga incorporates playfulness, a sense of adventure, and deep relaxation as you practice being in the moment. You can't think about your to-do list when you are focusing on not falling in the water! Learn to let go of tension, breathe through challenges, and perhaps overcome fear or doubt in yourself and your ability to balance on water. The best part is you get to do all of this in nature. Whether on a lake, river, bay, or pool, you are in the elements, breathing fresh air under the open sky with the sun on your skin.
