Have you been thinking of trying paddle board yoga? SUP yoga is a new way to expand and challenge your yoga practice. This practice is for everyone, even if you have never taken a yoga class or been on a SUP board. Incorporating relaxing stretches along with a vibrant flow, SUP Yoga has been rapidly growing in popularity.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Try SUP Yoga:
1. Nature – Get Outdoors
Connect to nature and see what unveils itself during your practice in the ever changing outdoors. The elements outside are always different and this allows you to go with the flow, find tranquility and balance with the currents of life. Experience everything from misty glassy waters, sounds of the water lapping, currents rippling, sunset views, sounds of birds and more. The classroom delivers the same sturdy foundation every time. Float your yoga with us and join us in a blissful mediation in motion on water!
2. Go With the Flow
Dive into your inner and outer balance while you try and stay steady on the board. Your foundational support here is always in motion, so you must learn how to gently go with the ebb and flow of the board. The boards are anchored down so that while the current is rippling beneath you, the board is anchored and you are free to flow and let any worries ripple away.
Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned yogi, taking your practice to a paddleboard is a distinctly different experience. Let the water support you and shift your perspective and appreciation for balance and focus that’s required for every pose. Your mind will balance and focus itself naturally as it adapts to this fluid movement.
The simple act of standing on a paddleboard requires full body and specifically core engagement. As you move and flow your body initiates numerous micro-adjustments in order to maintain your balance on the board. Tap into your inner stillness as we center ourselves in a moving environment.
Physically and mentally, SUP yoga is a great cross-training tool for all athletes. Improve mental focus, balance, flexibility and strength train using your own body weight. All abilities can practice sup yoga by honoring your individual level by choosing to embrace the challenge or by easing through.
Embrace the elements, breathe in the scenery and balance your mind, body and spirit. I look forward to seeing you on the water! Check out SUP Yoga in Truckee on Donner Lake this summer with Le Grand Adventure Tours!
