Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga
Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga is a natural extension of Yoga – it encourages calm and focus, but it’s done outside, with nature serving as the studio space. Being on the water will add a little more balance challenge too!
In Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga, we’ll offer a short tutorial on paddling a board and after a short paddle, we’ll move through a Yoga practice as a group. The practice will be tailored to participants’ experience with yoga. You’ll learn to perform Yoga poses while floating on water. Because of the moving surface, you’ll be engaging muscles that you would not normally, which makes this a fun and challenging class! Adding the imbalance of floating means that you’ll have to use your core much more than you would in a studio yoga class. We’ll finish with seated meditation on the board and of course some time floating in Relaxation Pose. You may want to plan to get wet; falling off the board has been known to happen.
This 1.5 hour course is taught on the Haw River above the dam in Saxapahaw, NC. Participants are responsible for providing clothing and footwear that can get wet, a towel and a change of clothing for the ride home.
Fee: $40 per person.
