Tuesdays 6.30pm and Sundays 8-9am from 3rd June 2018 @ Hove Lagoon
Practising Yoga and being on the water work wonderfully together. I love it. You have the sky above you and the water holding you, feeling connected to nature. There is also the added challenge of keeping balance which is great for stability and and core strength. You can not help but be completely in the present moment or you may get wet! :) It is an incredibly beautiful experience, what can be more calming than doing yoga floating on water? Your paddle board is used as the yoga mat. The end Savasana (relaxation) feels amazing floating on the water being completely at one with the elements.
SUP yoga is about taking a traditional yoga class onto the water where the paddleboard becomes your new floating yoga mat!
We use SUP boards that will provide a comfortable and stable platform for you to be able to take your practice into a new and exciting direction. Yoga and meditation on water, will give you a whole new experience and will highten your yoga practice. By being exposed to the elements and having to adjust to the movement of the board on water, you will maximize your core stability throughout the entire class.
Yoga asanas use every muscle in the body, increasing strength literally from head to toe. SUP yoga builds more core strength because these muscles must be engaged to keep your balance on the board. A regular yoga practice can also relieve muscular tension throughout the whole body.
SUP yoga intensifies every aspect of yoga practice, especially balance. Every tiny shift in weight is magnified and conveyed through movement of the board. SUP yoga can help you identify any misplacement within postures and help refine your alignment.

This includes board hire, wetsuit and life jackets.
We will be doing pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation too.
I would advise to wear yoga/gym gear or quick dry clothes that are easy to move in e.g, lycra leggings, board shorts etc. Wear a swimsuit, swimming shorts or bikini underneath.
