DESCRIPTION:
Love paddle boarding and yoga? Then SUP Yoga is perfect for you. It is the complete combination of both. Instinctively, we know that being near water reduces stress, brings peace, and makes us healthier and happier. Similarly, the practice of yoga provides the very same benefits. Through yoga we deepen our awareness of the breath, synchronize breath with movement, and cultivate focus, flexibility, balance and strength. SUP Yoga is an amazing fusion of both!
In SUP Yoga, the board becomes your moving yoga mat! Adding the element of water and wind to the yoga practice allows you to find ease and strength in every pose. SUP Yoga is perfect for fitness enthusiasts and yogis/yoginis who are looking for a new experience and challenge! When you paddle with us, you’ll hear lots of laughter, try new things, and experience the joy of soaking up the sun!
We will begin our class with a brief review to paddle boarding and safety instructions on land. We will then launch our board into the water at South 11th St. Water Access in Morehead City  (Kayak launch)  We will paddle over to a Sugarloaf  Island. Once there we will anchor our boards to the anchor line and begin our yoga session. During our 50 min. SUP Yoga Class, you will be guided through a Yoga practice. The instructor will tailor to the group’s ability levels and interests. If you want to spend your class time mostly in Shavasana or you want to attempt a Headstand we offer something for everyone!  After class if time allows we will put our boards on the beach area to explore the island.   Duration of SUP Yoga is 90 minutes.

HELPFUL TIPS:

  • Please leave all valuables in vehicle or at home. If you would like to take photos or bring items, such as car keys, with you, please bring a dry bag that can be secured on paddle board. The teacher will bring a phone to take photos and can send the pictures to the student if requested.
