What is SUP Yoga?
SUP Yoga is traditional Yoga taught on the water on floating boards. Your mat is a stand up paddle board; the world is your studio and all the elements have been invited – sun, wind, water and maybe the whales. Enjoy learning while adapting to the motion of the board, the continuous challenge to balance, the instant instability created by minor energy and weight shifts, and the focus required to ground while afloat. Change is the only constant in life. On the water learn to flow and enjoy the ride!
At HideAway Haven we offer SUP Yoga Weekend Retreats with experienced trainer Hayley from Radiant Being. Why not book a weekend now?
Here are some reasons to try SUP Yoga
It's a better workout.
Since the platform is unstable, you have to engage your core more for better balance.
It's more calming.
It will help you focus on your breath.
Ujjayi Pranayama, or Ocean Breath, is a popular yoga method for breathing because the "ocean" sound is believed to soothe your mind.
Standing up on a paddle board gives you a unique perspective of both the water and the horizon. It's as close as you can get to walking on water.
It's well-known that novelty is important in exercise regimens in order to stay motivated and happy.
Between breathing fresh air, soaking up vitamin D and enjoying the natural landscape, it beats just about any gym or studio out there.
