Standup Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga is a great way of working out. Essentially SUP Yoga comprises of yoga postures on tethered Standup Paddleboards, the board playing the part of the yoga mat.
SUP yoga provides great benefits to the mind and body, this is easy to see when each of the aspects alone gives amazing benefits to health, and together they provide the perfect combination.
You don’t need to be a yoga expert to get involved, starting with the basic poses on land, they can soon be transferred on to a standup paddleboard. There is a great advantage to learning the basic paddleboard skills first as you will get a feel for the board and gain stability. Once you feel comfortable on the board and start to move about, you can then progress to some basic poses.
SUP yoga strengthens the core, improves your balance, tones muscles, reduces stress and increases body awareness. As well as this, being on the water can be both tranquil and rejuvenating, helping you to achieve a relaxed and clear mind, whilst enjoying the surroundings of nature.
All our instructors are accredited by SUPfit, ensuring high quality, effective classes.
The board is used as an alternative yoga mat; the intensity of each pose is increased by providing clients with a greater challenge and added benefits. Your balance will improve as will your yoga performance – as the board is constantly moving, your body is working hard to stay stable, if done regularly it will lead to improved proprioception. It is also a great way to tell if you are performing your yoga poses correctly – if you put too much weight through one side of your body, the board will react.
Improve flexibility and fitness. Have fun and meet like minded people.
Some previous SUP experience recommended but not essential. No previous Yoga experience required.

Had a really great day today at the Ladies Watersports Day, trying out wake boarding, SUP with yoga and wind surfing. Good instruction and very friendly. Great value. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to try out their skills or knock the rust off.
Thanks for the great lagoon fitness SUP class this morning. It was great fun, and we all really enjoyed it.
