SUP Yoga: Expe­ri­ence inner still­ness on the water


Yoga on a pad­dle­board? Absolute­ly. And if you haven’t tried this won­der­ful fusion yet on a Lake Coun­ty lake, it’s time to get started.

Standup pad­dle­board­ing (SUP) is the fastest-grow­ing water­sport in the world. And no won­der, it’s fun, easy to learn and adapt­able to every lev­el of skill. All you need is a board, a pad­dle and a floata­tion device.

Add in yoga, and you have some­thing tru­ly unique. Keep­ing the board sta­ble as you move through a sequence of pos­tures (asanas), improves bal­ance, enhances focus and works mus­cles to build your core strength. And the sum­mer breeze, the sun on your skin and your close­ness to the water cre­ates a relax­ing seren­i­ty that allows you to con­cen­trate on your breath.

Stand Up and Flow in Wau­con­da offers SUP yoga ses­sions — from begin­ning to advanced — on beau­ti­ful Bangs Lake. They’ll pro­vide a board for a small fee, or you can bring your own. So get ready to prac­tice your Eagle Pose this sum­mer on the water in Lake Coun­ty. Om…/assets/uploads/images/yoga.jpg
