00:18 – SUP yoga is exploding in popularity because anyone can do it it’s challenging and it takes complete focus.
So when you get that combination of stand up, paddling, yoga, water, nature, all that rolled into one, it’s a beautiful experience.
The other cool thing about yoga is the moment you step on your
paddleboard there’s underlying muscles that aren’t really used on a stable ground that kick in immediately with the unstable surface of the paddleboard
So it’s a total body workout from head to toe.
I’ve had so many people come out for the first time that has never experienced stand-up paddling or ever been to a yoga class, so it reaches a really wide audience.
They feel very stable they have a great time as long as you can swim and feel comfortable around water you can come out and enjoy SUP Yoga.
For experienced Yogi’s it brings you back to the beginning of your
practice it gives you fresh eyes a whole new platform to play on. – 01:14

What Paddleboard Gear Would You Need?
01:33 – So let’s take a look at the gear and accessories that’s going to make your practice really smooth.
The most important piece of equipment is your board.
There’s an additional anchor at the nose so that I can anchor at the nose and tail so my board isn’t swinging in the wind
So as I said the most important piece of equipment is your board.
I like the bit cross. It’s ten feet long and 33 inches wide and it’s got a really nice flat deck.
The deck pad runs from nose to tail and it’s super soft but it’s also super grippy.
With the anchoring points at the nose and at the tail, I’m able to anchor from either end.
There’s attachments also for the bungee system so that you can carry your water your lifejacket and your class card.
In addition to being a great board for yoga, it’s also just fun to paddle so I hope that helps you get started in SUP Yoga and I hope you enjoy your new journey on this ever-evolving practice
on the water.
