More On SUP Yoga

Yoga on water, takes your session to a completely different level, on many levels! Set against the background of chirping frogs and birds and with the swans and their goslings cruising by, feel your heartbeat lower and a smile light up your face, plus by being exposed to the elements and having to adjust to the movement of the board on water, you will maximise your core stability throughout the entire class.
 

Complete beginners through to experienced SUPers and yogis can take part in this. No special clothing is required, although wetsuits and buoyancy aids are available if you prefer.

Sasha is an experienced and qualified BSUPA SUP Instructor, Yoga and Pilates teacher as well as PT (See our SUPFitness classes for more on this!)
