If you have ever tried Paddle Boarding you know it is a great workout, but a new trend in Stand Up Paddle Boarding is taking your workout to a new level. SUP Yoga is basically as it sounds, a yoga routine performed on a paddle board. The SUP is your mat and the open water is your studio.
Like Stand Up Paddle Boarding, SUP Yoga has been gaining in popularly over the last few years. I recently had my first encounter with SUP Yoga, and let me tell you it is real a game changer. At first performing even the most basic of posture on a SUP can be challenge. The instability of the board adds a new level into your yoga practice, It will tone your core, increase your stability and provide you with a fun learning environment out side of the studio. I would highly recommend taking your practice to the open water to see if SUP Yoga is for you.
SUP YOGA TIPS:
Besides your swimming suit it is a good idea to ware a rashguard, hat and/or sunglasses (with a strap) to protect your self from harmful UV rays.
Get Hydrated- Before departing sure make sure drink plenty water. Carrying anything on a board can be difficult.
This pass weekend a few THE HOUSE employees headed out to the St. Croix river valley for a little SUP adventure. The River was approximately 16 feet above normal, provide us with some of the best Stand Up Paddle boarding we have ever experienced.
