A little info more about practicing yoga on a SUP…
Paddle Board Yoga is a variation of Stand up paddle surfing (SUP, in the Hawaiian language Hoe he’e nalu), combined with the ancient practice of Yoga, which originated in Rishikesh, India. The sport combines the ancient practice of hatha yoga and vinyasa yoga asanas or poses, with the ancient form of surfing. Sounding awesome? It is!
Practicing yoga on a SUP brings a whole new perspective to being fully present in the moment. Asanas (yoga poses) that seem easy create a new and different challenge while floating. It’s an exciting way to amp up your practice requiring core strength and balance. Cobra pose, for example, takes on a new meaning as the sun bathes your face and illuminates your soul. Headstand brings fourth a buoyant freedom as your feet soar to the sky. Relaxing in Savasana, the sound of the water, the sounds of birds and the occasional fish jumping about allows one to sink into a natural state of bliss.
