The SUP Yoga & Fitness week is…
…for everyone aged 21 and above. Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is recognized as being one of the fastest growing sports across the world. It is a sport where you intensively train your core as you will mainly train the muscles of your belly, lower back, shoulders, bum and legs, but because you are also constantly busy with holding your balance SUPing is actually a full body workout.
During yoga breathing plays an important role. Combining breathing with movement on a floating platform, you’re sure to find moments of fun, laughter and focus. The rocking movement of the water challenges your balace, but you will also find great relaxation while breathing in the sea breath and letting your body come to total rest.
We will practice Yoga and SUP-yoga at the coastal river behind the Pura Vida Lodge and on a lake nearby, therefore the lessons are suitable for beginners and more experienced participants. If you have never stood on a SUPboard before, we will first practice during an introduction lesson on land.
