"When I was seven I was sitting on a dock, dangling my feet into the St. Lawrence Sea Way. All of a sudden, I was in the water. I only remember reaching for the surface as I was pulled down deep. Terrified, I began to kick and try to fight my way back up. Then something came over me. For an instant, it was like I could breathe underwater. Everything became calm and quiet, inside and out. I floated back up to the surface... I teach SUP because I believe reconnecting with nature, our fluid nature in particular, is healing and fulfilling for restless minds and wounded hearts. I believe that water must be respected and regarded as an invaluable life source. Already too many bodies of water are polluted and too many bodies thirst for clean drinking water. If we want to continue to enjoy our ponds , lakes, rivers, resevoirs and oceans, we must protect and care for them. This is why YOGAWILD, Prerana SUP Yoga Teacher Trainings and Prerana SUP classes exist. I look forward to sharing the healing power of nature with you."
I teach paddleboard yoga because I love being able to offer my practice to the elements. When you are surrounded by the beauty that nature presents, you become inspired to dive deep into your own practice and find that beauty inside as well. As an American Canoe Association certified paddleboard instructor and as an experienced yoga teacher of 7 years, I cannot wait to help you find your water bound practice and see how simple, safe and blissful paddleboard yoga can be!
