Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) & Yoga Training

Who wants to try yoga on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP)?

On June 7, 2012, I embarked on a training adventure to become certified to teach yoga on a stand up paddleboard (SUP). Yoga Energy Studio in St. Petersburg, FL led the program and, on June 10, 2012, after four intense days, I received my 40-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Certification.

Although the training was intense, it was a blast. We began the first day in a classroom, then set out for an “official” board meeting.

We then got ourselves caught in a torrential storm. As we were trying to leave the park, we realized that we probably should have just paddled home.

We spent the next few days learning, training, and teaching (on land and in the water).

And a great group of SUP Yogis from across North America returned to their home-towns to spread the SUP Yoga experience.

A tremendous thank you goes out to Tim and Sylvie of Yoga Energy Studio for the experience. I highly recommend this to anyone considering SUP Yoga teacher training certification. Check out their upcoming certification trainings.

The class schedule will be available soon, so contact me directly for some personalized training time and keep an eye out.
