SUP Yoga & Sculpt

Breathe…and ground your body as you begin your SUP Yoga & Sculpt experience. Slowly let go of tension while loosening your muscles and joints on the beach. Then enter the calm water as you settle within. Begin to move with your paddleboard through dynamic and static postures as you float above. Let the motion challenge and build core strength on land & water.

SUP Yoga & Paddle

This fun offering allows time for those of you who love SUP yoga and fitness paddling. We will offer a group yoga session on the water as well as an optional add on to go for a fitness paddle following the SUP Yoga class. Come wander the water with us to decompress and get a nice workout in while you’re at it. The practice may require different alignments than on solid earth because the board is continually moving. The yogi must make small adjustments in body position and weight distribution to counterbalance the movements of the board.
Available at Wayzata & Long Lake Locations..
