Stand Up Paddling (short: SUP) is a trendy sport from Hawaii, which conquers more and more the domestic waters. With SUP, you stand upright on a special surfboard and move around with the help of a paddle. This is an easy way to explore lakes and rivers. The untouched nature of the region is brought before your eyes and makes every SUP trip a special experience. Stand Up Paddling is easy and can be learned within a short time.
In SUP yoga, yoga exercises are performed on a Stand Up Paddle board in the open air. The board is your yoga mat.
For a yoga class on the SUP board, you don't have to be particularly athletic or limber. The special construction of the boards ensures good stability, making SUP yoga suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners. SUP yoga is a wonderful interplay of breath, strength, balance and flowing lightness, which is experienced during meditation, the physical exercises and also while paddling - in the middle of the lake and surrounded by water, you feel the sun on your face and the wind on your skin. "SUP Yoga brings you back into balance with powerful and calm exercises and helps you leave your stress at home."
Sitting and kneeling as well as standing asanas (physical exercises), breathing techniques, mindfulness exercises and meditation are part of every SUP Yoga session. Combined with the element of water, yoga offers a wonderful challenge to our body, soul and spirit. Focusing on the present moment is very important in order to maintain balance on the SUP board. Every smallest and deepest muscle is used to stay stable. The gentle rocking movements of the water have a completely relaxing effect. Above all, SUP yoga is a wonderful challenge that comes with a lot of fun.
