What exactly is ‘SUP Yoga’?
Stand-up paddle boarding first developed in the beaches of Hawaii during early 60s when surfing instructors used the technique to position themselves for taking photographs. More recently, professional surfers used the technique for training and it became a popular surfing-related pastime that began to make its way on the mainland about 10 years ago.
SUP Yoga is essentially yoga on a board in the water. Since the SUP board is large enough to act as a mat, was only a matter of time before yogis started to discover the ways it challenged their practice and offered a great way to have fun with yoga practice outdoors.
The most important things that attract a lot of yogis onto the board, are the health and psychological benefits of SUP yoga. The board is your yoga mat and the whole universe is your studio - with sun, wind and water as your companions. SUP yoga gives you the enjoyment of practicing yoga while continually adjusting and readjusting your position to the motion of the board and water. SUP Yoga challenges your focus, connects you with the amazing nature in addition to increasing your core, legs and whole-body strength, flexibility and balance. It provides a fun but challenging learning-environment for your practice, whether you are an advanced yogi, or a beginner. A lot of yoga studios and other fitness/ sport centers have started offering SUP yoga and the interest is growing fast, filling up classes, events and retreats.
