Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga with SUP YO

Yoga and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) just happen to go together very well. Doing yoga on a paddleboard enhances the yoga workout.

The paddleboard makes a fine yoga mat and the extra balance required by being on the water intensifies the yoga routine. The peacefulness and tranquility of floating on the water combines nicely with the meditative nature of yoga.

Classes are for all levels and are 75 minutes in length from our on land lesson to savasana. No SUP experience is required to participant but some yoga experience is recommended. Classes include all equipment. If you choose to bring your own equipment please reserve a BYOB space. Class includes SUP, paddle, anchor and PFD.
