SUP Yoga & Brunch

SUP Yoga & Brunch

June 8, 2019

This class is a great introduction to SUP and SUP Yoga.

Expect a brief warm up on land before easing onto the water to practice paddling skills. Then, clip your board to the line and let go into your guided yoga practice. The gentle yoga flow combines core strength and flexibility work that will leave you feeling energized but relaxed and open. Great for both seasoned practitioners and brand new students to paddle board OR yoga. Practice ends with a short meditation. Following class there is opportunity to test out your new paddle skills and enjoy the outdoors. Post paddle, you are invited for mimosas and brunch at the nearby MP Social with your paddle-loving community!
