Without a doubt, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the fastest growing water sports in the world, and the number of SUP followers and devotees has multiplied rapidly over the past decade. As an offshoot of this increased following and because of the total body workout that Stand Up Paddleboarding is, SUP fitness classes on the paddleboards have begun to emerge, providing a challenging and unique arena for fitness, Aerobics and Yoga.
So here at The SUP Company we are helping take the lead in Southampton, UK. So if your Yoga routine is getting a little stale and you're looking for a new challenge, Yoga on a Stand Up Paddleboard will reinvigorate you and push you to become an even better Yogi than you thought possible -- all while enjoying the natural splendor of floating on water. And it's not just for the lucky few in tropical places like Hawaii. We have partnered with Woodmill Activities Centre on the River Itchen and Southampton Water Activites Centre (SWAC) and bought SUP Yoga to Southampton for all to enjoy.
Now you can take Yoga out of the studio and onto the water and discover a magical experience which will take your Yoga practice to a different dimension as taking your Yoga practice onto a Stand Up Paddleboard is challenging but so much fun.
While some classes are more fast-paced and intense, there is definitely a growing appreciation for the calming and strengthening effects of SUP Yoga. While there is no doubt Yoga helps improve your core strength, balance and focus, when you add the extra challenge of your base being a floating board on water, you can guarantee a more engaged core and more intense focus than traditional Yoga on land. Plus there are the added benefits of paddling a short distance for your lesson.
