Part of our Wellness on Water (WOW) series, this class is appropriate for those new to yoga and newer to stand up paddleboarding (SUP). We recommend trying the SUP Learn to Paddle class before taking this class if you have never tried a paddleboard before. We will review some of the skills necessary to successfully paddle, starting with a safety talk and land lesson, followed by further instruction on the water. We'll paddle to a nearby cove, drop anchors (included) and try some common yoga poses. Poses will be low to the board including, but not limited to Seated Poses, Table Top, Cat/Cow, Bird Dog, Plank (mod plank), Thread Needle, Mod Low Lunge, Bridge, Boat and Corpse Pose (final relaxation). This class is great for those who hope to spend more time on the water and need ideas for using their time on the board. The soundtrack for this experience will the provided by the wildlife present during our practice. This program is held outdoors on the water, so please dress accordingly. Participants will meet at the Griffy Lake Boathouse.
