intro to sup yoga
Learn how to stand-up paddle board (SUP) and how to practice yoga on a SUP with this 3-class monthly series. Each class is 1.5 hours and is practiced at a different body of water. BOGA Yoga SUPs, paddles, and required flotation equipment provided. Registration is for a 3-class series and drop-ins are not permitted. The only participant requirement is that you are 13+; having some SUP or yoga experience is ideal but not required. Wear comfortable clothes and layers for if it's chilly, and bring a towel because at least your feet will get wet. Classes are taught by a trained SUP Yoga teacher who is certified to teach SUP technique. Below you'll find details on what we'll practice including dates, times, and lake names.

Day 1, we'll get SUP acclimated: sizing the paddle, getting on-and-off the board, and general safety tips and requirements. On the boards, we'll practice technique including: stroke, maneuvering techniques including turning around and steering, and moving-around the board. This class will likely be both a mental and a physical challenge. We'll paddle in waters that are a bit unforgiving -- it can be windy and there may be wake.

Next, on Day 2, you'll apply what was learned on the first day and begin to integrate gentle yoga movements. You'll practice Sun Salutations, savasana, and much more in-between! You won't have to do much paddling but you'll practice yoga. This session is likely more of a mental than a physical challenge even though the waters will likely be quite calm.

On Day 3, you'll apply your SUP technique to navigate the gentle waters, anchor-in, and practice the yoga you've learned plus some new stuff. By this time, you will feel much more comfortable in the water and on the board. The water should be calm and there will be more paddling than in Day 2, so this class will likely be both a physical and mental challenge.
