Before we get too far we should probably cover one thing.
What is SUP Yoga?

SUP is short for Stand Up Paddleboard. SUP Yoga is practicing yoga on a paddleboard. Paddleboard yoga is usually practiced in calm waters, the paddleboard is usually anchored down by weight or tied to something so it does not float away. 

SUP Yoga has become extremely popular over the last 5 years and the community is continuing to expand. There are so many benefits to both paddleboarding and paddleboard yoga. Improved balance, strength, awareness and spending time in nature. 

What I personally love about paddleboard yoga is the variety. If I want an intense workout that is going to kick my butt, BOOM, no problem. However, if I want to take it easy, maybe spend more time stretching and connecting to my breath, I can do that too. And of course everything in between. Let's not forget the fun part, I absolutely love just playing around on my board and even falling in!

 

FAQs

Do I need to have paddling experience?

No, you don't!  We do a quick on-land instruction before we begin. We start on our knees and have the option to stay here if that is what feels comfortable. A private class is a great option if you are nervous about paddleboarding for the first time.

What if I have never practiced yoga?

Not to worry, I know it can look intimidating. However, I offer numerous modifications so my classes are friendly for everyone no matter their experience. Again, if you are feeling nervous a private class is perfect for you.

What if I am not a strong swimmer?

If you are not a strong swimmer it is suggested that you wear a PFD at all times.

Will I get wet?

It is possible! Usually, we at least get our feet wet and up to our knees. Our boards are very stable, however, there is always a chance to fall in.

What if it is raining? Thunderstorm?

We can paddle in the rain! If it is light rain we will most likely continue. However, if there is a thunderstorm we must cancel our class.

 

What to Expect

Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow for time to get waivers in. Learn the basics of paddle boarding including what to do if you fall in! Then we spend a few minutes paddling our way to the perfect spot and anchor our boards. We will then flow through a creative sequence. Class ends with the most amazing savasana you have experienced. Here you can take in all the smells, sounds and feeling of the water gently rocking the board.

Will I get wet or fall in?

It is possible! Usually, we at least get our feet wet and up to our knees. Our boards are very stable, however, there is always a chance to fall in. It is rare that anyone falls in, even when I try my best to get them to. Sometimes at the end when we are playing around people fall in or even jump in!

What do I wear?

Dress for the weather and what you will be comfortable in. I suggest workout wear, which can be shorts and a tank top to leggings and a long sleeve shirt. I advise against wearing heavy cotton in case you do fall in. Bathing suits are great as long as you are able to move freely in them, keep in mind we may get into some weird poses. Bring a towel, which you can bring on the paddleboard if you would like.

Are there bugs?

This is one that I must bring up. Coming from out west I assumed all provinces had similar bug situations, I was very wrong. What the heck is bug season?!

Yes, there are bugs. Wear bug spray and keep this in mind when dressing. They only seem to be a bother in the evening, usually we are just getting off the water when they are coming out. 

What if it is raining? Thunderstorm?

We can paddle in the rain! If it is light rain we will most likely continue. However, if there is a thunderstorm we must cancel our class.

Due to COVID-19 classes may look a little different. Luckily for us, this is a great activity for social distancing. I think that paddleboarding and SUP yoga is great for taking care of our physical and emotional health, especially during this time. I will be following all safety guidelines provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada, Ontario Government and Paddle Canada.

Social distancing, keeping at least 6 feet between each person, will be enforced.

Masks must be worn while we are onshore and can be taken off when on the water. Please have a place to store your mask. If you cannot wear a mask, please be sure to keep a minimum of 6 feet distance between yourself and others.

I invite you to bring your own PFD (life vest) if you are able.
