Paddleboarding is a wonderful way to challenge your balance and keep fit on one of the most peaceful places locally- the River Thames.
Whether you are interested in building up your fitness by paddling along the river or developing your floating yoga skills ( most comfortable mat ever), then come along and try out a session.
I am a Paddleboard Coach and a keen flatwater kayaker. I coach and train with Longridge Canoe Club near Marlow and teach a dozen yoga classes a week
Paddle Boarding + Yoga = SUP Yoga
I feel paddle boarding and yoga are a beautiful marriage. Until I discovered paddle boarding, I spent my river time in a kayak and I taught yoga, since then I feel I blended both of my passions.
When you stand on the board excellent posture is required and a deep connection through the feet, this engages the tummy muscles and then from there you can begin to paddle or begin your yoga. So easy and fluid you cannot believe how any movement reflects from board to water and to your body; magical and I can’t wait till we can get out for another season of SUP Yoga.
SUP Yoga is my favourite style and place to practice yoga. Obviously seasonal and weather dependant but generally on all of my excursions on the river, I will always include a few yoga moves, too hard not too!
Keep an eye on my online booking and facebook to see when I teach the SUP Yoga classes. It is very special indeed as the board on the water is unforgiving and any misalignments will be felt. Hence why I am so passionate about it, there is no better way to improve your yoga. The beauty is you don’t need to have done yoga before or paddle boarding to try out your first class!
You can click on this link and find out the next SUP events, in the winter I may not post much but you can text or email to book something for you or your family and friends. SUP Yoga is mainly for the warmer months but I do take people out the river all year round and do some yoga along the way. https://bookwhen.com/whatsup66
