******** SUPfit  SUP Yoga Workshop & Instructor Training ********

WakeUpDocklands London –
SUP Yoga Workshop – 18th June (no experience needed)
Come and join us on the water and challenge yourself with some SUPyoga!

If you have an interest in yoga, a sense of adventure and up for trying something a little bit different this is for you. A one day workshop spent on the water learning SUP skills, water safety and practicing the art of SUPyoga.

Essentially SUP Yoga combines yoga postures with Stand Up Paddle Boarding, the board playing the part of the yoga mat.

Who can take part?
Everyone welcome – no experience needed, all we ask is that you can swim 50 meters and comfortable in the water.
You don’t need to be a Yoga pro to get involved, with The SUPyoga Workshop you will start with basic poses on land, before transferring them to the boards! And if you have have never stepped foot on a SUP before, fear not, we will teach you all you need to know, so you feel comfortable and confident on the water, before moving about and trying a few poses.
Why not give it a try and see if you love it as much as we do. The worst that can happen is that you might get wet!

SUP Yoga with Lululemon

BY Jen Slater of www.eclecticcake.com

Triathlon to trapeze and anything in between. A fitness blog about not keeping still and trying everything once.

Yoga isn’t relaxing. You sit your stiff, inflexible body on the floor then force it into bizarre positions, whilst someone dictates when to breathe and you try not to get stuck or fall on your face. Yet the suggestion of doing it on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) with SurfSUPfityoga and Lululemon, where the struggle to stay up-right or down-dog would be even greater, seemed to be the recipe for bliss. There’s something I find so relaxing about water – waves licking rocks, ripples kissing jetties and buoys bobbing in satisfaction – if there was ever a moment I’d finally relax into yoga, it would be now.
 

 

With my bum pointed to the sky, hands white from gripping the board as wake from a passing boat threatened to knock us off balance, you wouldn’t have known I was relaxed but my love of water made me feel comfortable. Knowing that there was a softer surface below gave me the confidence to try poses I’d normally avoid. Besides a foam pit, what could cushion a failed attempt at crow better than water? No, it won’t be subtle – the splashes and splutters (and squelches after reaching land) will ensure the whole class and anyone watching would know I fell in – but at least I’d get to keep all my teeth! As our instructor quickly pointed out, the only thing that happens if you fall in is you get wet.

 

The boards were far more stable than I’d predicted and each was clipped onto a buoy so we didn’t drift down the river. The few little wobbles I had only shook out a few laughs and also helped to relax my mind – rather than worrying about not being able to hold the poses, I was just pleased to not have gone for an unintentional swim. I only realised how much the extra balancing had worked my core when I woke up the next day with achey abs. No matter how relaxing I found the session, it definitely still had the benefit of a full workout.

 

The one part of a yoga class I’ve mastered, is savasana. There’s something freeing about lying on the floor with your eyes closed until you forget where you are and the gentle movement of the river just helped to rock me into an almost sleep – my body dreamed of tropical beaches, bath-warm oceans and piña coladas. I’d found my yoga zen.
