In the last decade, yoga and stand up
It only makes sense that the two activities would combine at some point, becoming the recent SUP yoga phenomenon. In our opinion, this is among the best things to happen to either sport. We have come to embrace this trend and are currently pushing its development in our city, Spokane, Washington.
Why should you give it a try? Well, the same reasons we did!
It's a fantastic workout. You know those muscles you overlook at the gym, the little tiny ones you can't see in the mirror? Well, you're going to need them to master yoga on the water. Your body contains countless tiny muscle groups known as stabilizer muscles. While you can't flex them for that
It keeps you aware. Good form on the water means you need to be aware of waves, currents, winds, and edges of your board on top of what your body is doing. Staying in the moment means staying out of the drink, unless you get too warm, of course.
It keeps your movements fluid. Sudden movements mean rocking your board and jeopardizing your center of gravity.
It's always different. Without the controlled environment of a studio or home, your sessions will never be repetitive again.
It's a ton of fun! Get out there and try something new! Cool off in the water, splash your friends, get some sun, take a nap, whatever you want. Just go for it! We promise you won't regret it!
