Yoga does happen on the mat only.. but also on a PADDLE BOARD!
There are two kinds of people. Those who have to suffer for sports and always exercise for a specific reason: because of overweight, back pain, often it is both. The others make movement so that they get the whole mental work of the day out of themselves, remember where arms, legs and stomach are, and use these also for what they were originally intended for.
In metropolitan office life, bodywork is usually neglected. That's why I started yoga almost 3 years ago. I read so much about it that I thought I knew everything. From the sweaty Ashtanga to the exhausting Bikram... but not until I stumbled upon an episode of Yoga Girl's podcast "From the heart" had I learned about SUP YOGA!
What is Stand Up Paddle Yoga? SUP Yoga is an innovative way to transform any regular yoga practice. Taking place while floating on water and balancing on a paddleboard, SUP Yoga is making waves around the world, with the SUP community taking their yoga practice off dry land and trading in their mat for a paddleboard.
Practicing yoga on water can seem a little intimidating. After all, many of us find plenty of challenge balancing on land! But before you write off SUP Yoga as impossible, here’s what you should know: “If you can breathe, you can do yoga. If you can stand on one foot, you can paddle."
