SUP Yoga


As stand up paddleboarding (SUP) has increased in popularity as a fitness activity over the last few years, it makes sense that ocean lovers would want to take their yoga onto the water. The width and stability of the paddleboards makes them viable "floating yoga mats," and just like working out on the BOSU balance trainer, the ever-moving surface makes you engage many tiny muscles that never get used in most regular workouts. This fledgling hybrid goes by a few different names: yoga instructor Sarah Tiefenthaler runs the YogAqua program out of a Marina del Rey studio, while the Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii calls it Flo-Yo.
