Whether you want to teach SUP or SUP yoga or you just want to take your paddling to the next level, we have the programs that will stuff your brain full of info about paddle technique and water safety. You can earn your World Paddle Association Class 1 and SUP Yoga certification right here in Music City! We have two options: May 5, 2018 for SUP/WPA only. June 2 and June 3, 2018, SUP WPA and SUP Yoga.

In the SUP Yoga Certification and you’ll learn:

  • How to sequence a yoga class for all levels of students on a board
  • How to cue and demonstrate yoga poses during a class
  • Tips on growing your classes and resources when starting a business

The first day of training includes a WPA Class 1 Certification. If you’re not a yoga instructor, but want to grow and expand your knowledge of paddling or consider teaching on the water, join us for the 1-day course. You’ll learn:

  • Basic water rescue techniques

Once you have your certification, you’ll be in a better position to safely and confidently expand your SUP yoga classes in our own city. This is the training we use for our staff. Nashville Paddle Co. can provide board, paddle and PFD discounts for yogis looking to start or expand their own SUP Yoga programs in their home cities.

Cost is $495. Not interested in yoga? The one-day WPA-only portion training is $295 (deduct $35 from either training if you are bringing your own board, paddle and PFD).

CPR & First Aid certification is not included with this class, and not required for attendance, but you must submit proof in order to receive your WPA certification form. Need a local class? Call Precious Hearts.
