SUP Yoga or Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga, originating in Hawaii, is the combined practice of yoga and stand-up paddleboarding.
In Lawrence, KS we enjoy SUP yoga by paddling to a quiet spot on the lake, anchoring boards, and practicing yoga with a variety of poses – ending with our hands dangling in the water for savasana (resting pose).
Yoga on the Lake in Lawrence, KS?
Doing yoga on the water brings an unsteady surface to an otherwise earth-bound practice. Flowing through asana (movement) on a SUP yoga board, ignites core muscles, strengthens & stabilizes all muscle groups, achieving better balance.
What if I fall in the water?
In my opinion, it is a bonus if you lose balance and fall overboard. SUP Yoga has been my favorite way of finding humility within yoga, adding laughter without hesitation in my practice- such as life! Falling is part of the experience and there is freedom in fully embracing this, letting go of expectations, judgment & letting it be, as is! I find it a great metaphor for life too. We all experience a fall, physically, mentally, or emotionally; we get back up, adapt, smile, & try again!
