The experience of doing your yoga routine on a paddle board rather in a traditional studio is incredible. You are completely immersed in nature and your experience is heighted with the calmness of being deep in nature on your paddle board.
Some may ask what benefit does SUP yoga even have? Well the answer is simple, because the board is constantly moving your muscles must work harder than when you are on a stationary surface. You are going to engage your muscles so much more than your everyday yoga routine in a studio. It forces you to focus more on the transitions and your balance always. If you move to fast you can shift the board, so staying focus and focusing on your balance will give you an even more challenge in your yoga than on dry land.
What types of yoga poses can I do on my board? There is a plethora of poses that you can engage your body in on your SUP board. The first pose that almost everyone knows is the downward facing dog. This specific yoga pose strengths your arms and legs. Another great yoga pose to do on your board is the tree pose this is the classic yoga pose where your hands are together on your chest and you are standing on one leg with the other tucked inside your other leg.
Lastly another pose you can do is the plank pose. This is simply just a plank, you are going to engage your core, upper back, and you are going to work your legs in order to keep a steady and firm plank pose.
