Sunset Paddle Yoga is a great way to improve balance, gain core strength, and connect with nature. Practicing yoga on a SUP brings a whole new perspective to being fully present in the moment. Asanas (yoga postures) create a new challenge while floating, requiring full awareness, acceptance of mother nature’s mood and of course a sense of humor!
