Uisce Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga

Take your Yoga practice onto the water and swap your mat for a board! Suitable for all experiences and bodies, SUP Yoga is fun, and challenges your balance and coordination whilst also really strengthening your core. You are surrounded by nature and the motion of water gently soothes the soul.

Inspired by the element of water, we will begin with some gentle seated poses and connecting with the Sacral Chakra . Caroline will gently guide you through a class helping you to feel balanced, calm and connected. There will be an option to challenge yourself if you wish to try some standing poses, using the paddle to help create stability.

SUP Yoga is easier than you think- we just slow it down and really connect with every part of our body, taking time to find our balance and ease gently into each pose. Keeping our centre of gravity low to the board, we will find stillness as you connect deeply to yourself and the beautiful surroundings.
