The sun is shining and the sky is blue at long last! When the weather is a great as it is at the moment the last thing any of us want is to have to get into a hot, sweaty gym or yoga studio and spend an hour of precious sunshine indoors.
So how can we take our practice outdoors and really enjoy this great weather to the max? Well you could set your mat up in the garden and have a perfectly pleasant time, OR you could try SUP yoga!
Amy, I hear you cry, what are you suggesting we try now?
SUP yoga – it’s yoga; on a stand up paddle board…in the water…have i lost you?!
Now, it’s not necessarily for the faint hearted or those that don’t like getting wet, but it’s definitely for those that love to try something new and have fun in the process!
You don’t need to be on a tropical beach to try SUP yoga – there are SUP classes popping up on rivers and lakes all over the country – just make sure you’ve got a winter wet suit for those colder days!
Nothing else will keep you in the moment and keep you breathing more than trying to downward dog on a paddle board in the middle of a lake.
It is such a great workout for your core because you’re using all your strength from your whole midsection to keep yourself up and out of that water.
Have you ever tried SUP yoga? What did you think of it? Let us know in the comments below or if this inspires you to give it a try we’d love to hear from you!
