We are so excited to offer Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga (SUP Yoga) so you can take your yoga class on the water to practice better balance & stability, increase your confidence, breath freely and openly, meditate with the sound of water & nature and you get to try out your favorite yoga postures!!
SUP yoga unites the sport of stand-up paddleboarding, which originated in Hawaii in the 1940s, with the ancient practice of yoga, which has its roots in India. In the short time SUP yoga has existed, it has grown in popularity worldwide.
Practicing yoga on a surface that is moving – like the paddleboard – engages the core muscles and strengthens other muscles which wouldn't otherwise be used in an earth-bound practice. SUP yoga also requires intense focus because transitioning between poses requires concentration to keep the board steady.
Yoga brings balance and restores all bodily systems by creating physical, mental and spiritual harmony. Both yoga and stand up paddle boarding are great for building better balance, coordination, endurance, and body strength!
This is an all levels yoga class that is suitable for new and beginner paddlers. No previous SUP experience is needed, just a yearning for adventure and fun out on the water!
A 75 minute session includes the board rental, an introduction to paddleboarding, a short paddle journey, and a guided yoga practice on the boards.
Please Meet at Christie Lake Conservation area, it is located on HWY 5, the address is:1000 ON-5, Dundas, ON L9H 5E2. We meet at the Marina Pavillion, you will see one of the instructors with the boards in a trailer nearby the Marina Pavillion. Arriving 15-30 minutes prior to class is recommended so we can get on the water punctually.
