The Academy is based on the concept of small classes with maximum of 6 Students, high quality teaching, better learning and understanding, and better connection to your consciousness and inner peace. SUP yoga unites the sport of stand-up paddle boarding, which originated in Hawaii in the 1940s, with the ancient practice of yoga, which has its roots in India. In the short time SUP yoga has existed, it has grown to include devotees worldwide.
In the following the First Steps of starting SUP or Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Yoga:
· The first one is to SLOW DOWN. Move at half the speed you usually do on land once you start paddle boarding on the water. Follow your breathing pattern slowly as you stroke your arms and legs.
· The second one is to MIND YOUR POSITION. Minding your own poses and positions is the most important thing in SUP board and yoga. You have to be aware on the paddle board’s shape and its handle to avoid falling off.
· The third one is to GAZE ONLY AT THE HORIZON. The loss of balance comes from changing gaze too quickly. Your body feels the stress and your muscles contract. In this case, having your gaze fixed on the horizon will give you the stability you need.
· The fourth one is to HYDRATE YOUR BODY BEFORE THE WORKOUT. It is vital to drink plenty of water before you proceed to workout. Since changing poses on the paddle board requires you to move all parts of your body, you will need to have enough water in your body to sweat it out as well.
The Benefits are listed in the following brief details:
1. It Promotes Mindfulness
· The practice of SUP Boarding and Yoga requires you to pay attention to your breath as well as your body movements.
· This is needed for you to keep a well-balanced posture while afloat on water. Focusing on your overall breathing and balance is indeed a step closer to developing a deeper level of mindfulness or self-awareness.
2. It Increases Breath Control
· The pace of this type of yoga requires you to slow down. Slowing down allows you to focus on your movements and change your poses as smooth as possible.
· As you slow down on your movement, it also allows you to focus more on your breathing and increase your control over it.
3. It Exercises Your Body
· Although SUP Boarding and Yoga do not require too much physical activity, it is still proven to exercise your body. The poses that you exert generally firm up core areas such as the arms, shoulders, legs, knees, and quadriceps.
4. It Gives You the Feeling of Refreshment
Going through the summer heat instead of lying flat on your yoga mat inside a room creates a lot of difference. It gives you a more sense of being one with the outdoors. You can easily cool down merely by having an unlimited supply of water beneath you.
5. It Gives You a Chance to Experience the Beauty of Nature
Aside from the calming feeling of being afloat on water, having a beautiful landscape as your view is definitely priceless. You even have an accessible fresh air around you. How can you make your yoga experience better? Well, try stand-up paddle boarding and yoga to see!
6. It is So Fun and Challenging
The SUP Boarding and Yoga not only improve your health but also serve as a fun and challenging work to do. It gives you the freedom to move depending on your desired poses. It also challenges you mentally and physically to balance your weight on water while doing yoga poses.
7. It Improves Balance and Flexibility

Further, the same is done to increase your mobility and flexibility. It requires your different muscles to strengthen with a wide range of poses. Those who frequently practice yoga is known to have excellent balancing and flexibility skills.
8. It Increases Blood Circulation
One of the important parts of yoga is to focus on your breathing. This has been found out to increase your blood circulation. This increase helps to ease the feeling of stress and improves your overall emotional wellness.
9. It Gives Yoga Technique a New Face
