Stand-up Paddle Board (SUP) Pool Yoga is an exciting new workout that combines water sport and yoga with the moving, unstable environment of the pool encouraging playfulness and fun in your yoga practice. By incorporating a yoga practice on a SUP board, you work to increase core stabilization, train balance, and target smaller muscles that may be over looked in strength training or in a studio practice. Classes consist of a 60 minutes slow flowing, beginner yoga class on a yoga specific SUP board. In SUP pool yoga it is necessary to slow down, focus intently, and move carefully in and out of each posture. The instructor will provide assistance for safe entry and exit of the pool. Let go of your serious yoga practice and come have fun!
