When you think about paddle boarding, what comes to your mind first? The amazing work out? The beautiful scenery? The peacefulness of the calm water and the wildlife around you? Those are all great things that paddle boarding entails, but have you ever thought about doing yoga on a paddle board?
Just like paddling down the river or across the lake gives you a work out, SUP yoga also has some pretty awesome benefits. Not only do you get to witness the bustling wildlife around you, you get to become one with it. Yoga is already known to be great for your health. It’s a stress reducer, it strengthens and tones your body while stretching you out to help with your flexibility. Instead of heading to that loud and crowded gym, hop on a paddle board and let the sunshine kiss your skin while the fresh air enters your lungs and the birds cheer you on! You learn to appreciate nature in ways you never thought you could, it’s also a way to overcome your fear of deep water or water in general. When you’re at peace, all of your worries fade away. Another benefit to SUP yoga is that you’re learning to balance on an unstable platform so you’re putting your core muscles to work. Anyone can do SUP yoga and that’s the best thing about it. It’s not limited to a certain age group so if you can stand on a board and paddle, SUP yoga is for you!
