Yoga on SUP (Stand up paddleboard) is a practice that combines core training with sup with a harmonious experience in nature. It can be practiced in the ocean, on a lake, in a cove, as long as the space is safe and adapted for a yoga practice.
Yoga on Yoga Watermat® is a practice that is done at indoor or outdoor pools. The Watermats are setup in the pool in a similar way yoga mats would be set in a studio_ yet they float. The gentle movement of the water supports healing and relaxation, also it adds challenge in the balancing postures, builds core strength, and requires high level of mind-focus.
Yoga at the beach is a beautiful, harmonious way to practice in a natural environment.
