Why Stand-up Paddle Yoga?
What is SUP yoga and why should you try it?
SUP yoga is the newest summer sport trend. Depending on the conditions and the location, no experience of either SUP or yoga is necessary to try it, only a willingness to try and the ability to swim.
SUP yoga is an increasingly popular way of keeping fit and improving core-stability. In simple terms, it is a fusion of yoga and SUP where you perform yoga moves on the board while in the water. It challenges, elongates and strengthens the body, as well as deepens your abilities to focus, center, and quiet the mind.
In SUP yoga the board becomes your mat, the birds sing your flow, and the water and wind remind us to have a sense of humour as we explore our yoga journey.
Imagine the sun bathing your face as you rise into Warrior I while a gentle wave rolls beneath you…
Imagine rejuvenating in child’s pose while the sea gently licks your fingers…
Practicing yoga on a paddleboard brings a whole new perspective to being “fully present in the moment” and experiencing balance in life.
For those of you who join our retreats this summer, you will have the opportunity to experience SUP yoga with the lovely Shankara. From a very early age Shankara developed a natural interest in everything holistic, nature, dance and healthy living which led her to train professionally in various holistic disciplines such as Stand Up Paddle surf, yoga, pilates and holistic massage. She frequently travels to different countries to share her knowledge and passion for all things SUP.
Surrounded by the turquoise waters of Ibiza, SUP yoga will teach you to stay soft, present, fully centered and strong while you flow with confidence through the changing waves of Life and Love.
You will be amazed at how great you will feel after practicing SUP yoga. Re-balanced, re-vitalized and deeply relaxed.
