Over the past decade,Yoga has grown in popularity with dozens of variations. The many benefits that accrue from the multitude of yoga styles, from Ashtanga to Vinyasa, are well established.
In recent years, Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga (SUP) has become a fitness phenomenon, amplifying the benefits of yoga when practiced on water. Moving to water is indeed a very different and challenging experience that may initially humble those that have never practiced on a floating surface. It is important to embrace that this is not just “yoga"…but "yoga on the water.”
As amazing as SUP Yoga is, it requires climates where the weather is warm year round, further subject to day-to-day conditions. Boards cost as much as $1,000 each, and given that they typically weigh 30-40 pounds and are oblong in shape, they are somewhat awkward to carry and less-than-convenient to stack and store.
And then, there's that pesky paddle to keep on board, just as you downward dog!
