what is sup yoga?
Simply put, SUP Yoga (stand-up paddle yoga) is a yoga practice that happens on a stand-up paddle board while floating on water. You don’t need any yoga or SUP experience to get started, but if you have some, SUP Yoga will take you deeper into your practice because on a shaky surface you need to be more accurate with your movements.
SUP Yoga takes the yoga practice to a whole new level. Your board becomes your mat. Your balance is constantly challenged, which makes your core work all the time. To compensate for the movement of the board, your body will be automatically adjusting and engaging all your muscles throughout the practice. Your focus and mindfulness will be trained, almost without putting any effort into it, since to be able to hold the poses on the board your mind will easily anchor in the present moment. You are surrounded by nature and you can’t escape its benefits, such as releasing stress, soothing your nervous system, or balancing your emotions.
SUP Yoga is one of those super satisfying challenges. Every minute you hold on the board feels like an achievement. Even if I don’t think yoga should focus on the results, I feel the satisfaction you experience at a SUP yoga class motivates you to start practicing yoga on the mat. Helping people discover yoga is one of my goals in life and SUP Yoga is a shortcut to it.
And last but not least, SUP Yoga is so much fun. Seriously.
Inhale nature, float, and flow!
A plus of this kind of practice is the group energy that arises and the opportunity to meet like-minded people. The group classes take place on the lake of St. Moritz.
