Paddle Board Yoga

If you’re wondering why someone would choose to do yoga on a wobbly surface like a stand-up paddle board, you’re not alone. Let's start with the wobbly thinking: Our boards are built to be stable making it Fun and Easy to Learn How to "Stand Up" on a Paddle Board. Once you give it a try, doing yoga on a paddle board is not as hard as it looks, and it even offers opportunities that a land-based practice doesn’t. SUP yoga can be a delightful way to experience nature and invigorate your yoga practice!

We offer Private Classes by advanced reservations or you can join Coastal Yoga & Nutrition at Sunrise Paddleboards for a Sunday Funday! We’re proud to share our practice and teachings with you in a way that is creative, nurturing, challenging, and most importantly super fun! Challenge your balance and mind floating on a paddle board! Closing our practice with a serene floating shavasana, which aims to guide you into a deep meditative state. Our favorite part!

Get inspired with your postures while floating on the water: Downward Facing Dog, Plank, Chataranga, Up Dog, or drop your head and see the river upside down in your best headstand. As you attempt more challenging balancing postures, you will begin to add a whole new element of core strength, single-pointed concentration, and intense focus.

Sunrise Paddleboards neighbors the delicious Myapapaya, feel free to indulge in some yummy and healthy food after class! With the fresh breeze, beautiful palms, iguana, nature, and tropical birds this will be a true feeling of heaven on earth and bring you to a new level of mind, body, and spirit. It's a healthy activity that gets you outside and moving your body. Class includes Instructor - Beginners are welcomed and encouraged or we can challenge the most advanced by request. Reservations Required. Special dates and times may be requested.
