What is Stand Up Paddle Yoga? Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga is a challenging new way to energize and transform any regular yoga practice. Practiced while floating on water and balancing on a paddleboard, SUP Yoga is making waves around the world. Classes take place at the natural quarry setting in calm chest-high waters. Following a warm-up paddle around the quarry, students are guided through modified yoga poses on the paddleboard.  Classes end with Savasana, and it is particularly special as you are rocking in the gentle waves with the sounds of nature all around. 

A great way to get and stay fit, SUP Yoga classes work the legs, core, arms, and back as you try to stay on the board and perform the poses. The broad and stable 10- to 12-foot-long paddleboards have been dubbed ‘the floating yoga mat,’ while SUP yoga devotees describe the experience as relaxing, meditative, joyful, and free.

I’ve never been on a paddleboard before, can I do SUP Yoga?

Yes, of course, you can! You will begin kneeling on the board, it might not be easy for everybody to stand up at the beginning, but with time and practice, you will get it. I have actually seen some people for whom it’s easier to do yoga on the board than to practice stand up paddle.


What are the benefits of SUP Yoga?

SUP yoga provides an invigorating workout. Advocates list the following benefits of practicing yoga on a paddleboard:

  • Challenging
  • Increases the amount of core stability needed to achieve each pose
  • Develops balance
  • Increases focus
  • Increases breath control
  • Activates new muscles
  • Water is calming and stress-alleviating
  • Motivating
  • Rejuvenating
  • Fresh air
  • Fun

What kind of postures can we expect?


We gently start with a warm-up and seated postures, sun salutations, also some strengthening core work and postures for the back and in a way almost all poses become balancing poses. Poses which are quite easy to achieve on the land are more difficult on the board like warrior 1 or 2.  It reprograms your equilibrium sense, as the whole body is active most of the time. Some of the poses that you will enjoy in SUP yoga include:

  • Downward Facing Dog
  • Upward Facing Dog
  • Cat Pose
  • Child’s Pose
  • Tree Pose
  • Warrior Pose I & II
  • Plank Pose
  • Table Pose + variations
  • Crow Pose
  • Savasana (Corpse Pose)

Will Standup Paddleboards be available?

Yes. A limited number are available for an additional fee. When signing up for classes, be sure to select "SUP Yoga with paddleboard" when registering to reserve your board.

What do I need to bring or wear?

Wear non-restrictive clothes that drys quickly.  A swimsuit or yoga clothing are perfect.  Early and late in the season, you may need long sleeves, booties or a wetsuit.  Sunscreen is recommended.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
