Q: Why Practice SUP Yoga or SUP Fitness on a Paddleboard (SUP)?
A: Well, it’s just plain fun!
Practicing SUP yoga and fitness on a standup paddleboard is one more way to grow and expand your practice while not taking yourself too seriously. You’ll get a great core workout as you experience balancing from a whole new perspective and take in the beautiful scenery and wildlife around you in a relaxing setting. Even if you’re brand new to paddleboards or yoga, you’ll quickly begin to feel comfortable on the boards and be able to enjoy yourself on the water. Our WPA-certified instructors know both paddling and yoga. They are trained in everything from rescue techniques to modifying classes for a standup paddleboard.

SUP yoga classes are open to all levels and can easily be modified or intensified based on the student. We now also offer intermediate SUP yoga classes for those who have already completed at least one other class and feel comfortable practicing at a faster pace. Small class sizes ensure safety and close interaction with the instructor. Grab a friend (or multiple) and join us. Contact us about corporate wellness, teambuilding and bachelorette parties, too.
Students are encouraged to have basic swimming skills to participate in a class.
Yoga and SUP Fitness classes are approximately 75 minutes. We launch from our lakeside boathouse on Hamilton Creek Recreation Area on Percy Priest Lake.
