"Learn to ride the waves of life and not be knocked off by the turbulence that comes to us." Paddle Board Yoga is an incredible experience.

It teaches you to trust and to move beyond your fears. It doesn't matter if you've never practiced yoga before. There are poses for everyone! NOTE: ALL participants must be able to swim; what this means is you must be comfortable if you fell off your board that you can make it back to your board and get back on.

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM    Paddleboard Yoga - Paddle Board Yoga
"Learn to ride the waves of life and not be knocked off by the turbulence that comes to us." Paddle Board Yoga is an incredible experience. You can enjoy being outdoors, connecting with nature and getting mood-boosting vitamin D. Because it requires balance and stability to stay on the board, it will strengthen your core and build muscles in places you didn't know existed. Paddle Board Yoga is an activity that can be performed by anyone, as long as you are willing to break out of your comfort zone and try something new. It teaches you to trust and to move beyond your fears. It doesn't matter if you've never practiced yoga before. There are poses for everyone! NOTE: ALL participants must be able to swim; what this means is you must be comfortable if you fell off your board that you can make it back to your board and get back on. PDFs will be provided to all participants with your registration. Thank you for understanding we do NOT have a "try before you buy" policy for this very finite program.
