3 SUP Yoga Moves to Try!
by Rianna Poskin
Have you tried Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Yoga?
I didn’t even know it had a name although I’ve been playing around with it for a few years!
I was out by the river when a SUP Yoga instructor paddled over to me and asked me if I wanted to join her SUP Yoga class. I said I don’t know what that is, a little nervous! Then she told me what the letters stood for, duh! Makes so much sense!
Before you give it a try…
I’d suggest warming up on land first because you’ll be using all kinds of stabilizing muscles when you’re on the board. You don’t want to get hurt.
As a precaution always check with your healthcare team to make sure you’re good to go if this is new to you!
Here are 3 moves to try! You probably won’t get wet because your balance is spread across your hands and your feet…but be prepared if you do go in!
I used my yoga mat on the board to get some extra grip! (my affiliate link)
1. Four – Limbed Staff Pose
2. Up- Dog
