On this retreat you have unlimited SUP board access and one daily SUP yoga class. SUP is a great practice for developing mindfulness, focus, balance and breath skills, although the consequence of losing focus or balance is only ending up with a refreshing splash in the water, rather than a fall on a hard floor! SUP Yoga gives you no choice but to “be here now”, practising yoga on your floating yoga mat is as present as you can be. Paying attention to every breath and body movement, with every placement trying to keep balanced. Less is more on a stand up paddle board. Simple yoga poses are all you need to develop body awareness – taking them on the board just enhances that awareness.
