Summer is here, and with it comes all the activities associated with the season. From sandy beach yoga to leisurely lakeshore bike rides, people are always looking for new ways to be active while enjoying the warm weather.
One of the most popular summer sports is SUP yoga. Ever heard of it?
Chances are you’ve caught a glance or two of SUP yogis stretching their spines on the water. If not, here’s a little primer on the sport:
SUP yoga, an acronym for Stand Up Paddleboard yoga, involves practicing yoga whilst balancing on a paddleboard.
Going to a SUP class is a great way for yogis to expand their practice, however, I wouldn’t recommend it for newcomers, as it’s much harder to gauge what stretches work for your body when you’re trying to balance on water and waves.
However, if you’re looking for a way to refresh your yoga practice, here are 3 reasons why SUP yoga may be the perfect way to do it:
1. It requires stronger concentration and endurance
2. It’s relaxing to practice out in nature
3. It’s also novel and fun
Have you ever tried SUP yoga? I’d love to hear about your experience!
