Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga - Private Sessions
with Gloria Owens
Take your asana to the lake this summer! SUP Yoga is fun, cool and challenging. It's great way to expand your mind, mix up your workout and attune to yourself and nature!
Gloria is lifelong water baby and certified Kriplau Yoga and SUP Yoga Instructor who would love to share her passion for the stand-up paddleboarding & yoga with you this season!
Gloria and has two high-quality, stable paddle boards and offers personal SUP Yoga sessions on the lovely Lake Lillinonah in the Newtown/Brookfield area od CT.
SUP Yoga is for you if:
- You are comfortable in and around the water and don't mind getting wet. You should be able to swim.
- You already have some yoga expereince and are ready to attune more deeply to the elements and nature in your practice (water, sky, sun, wind, birds, etc.).
- You can come with an attitude of curiousity, patience and willingness to fall. Poses are generally more challenging on the board than they are on the mat and also a lot of fun!
- You're up for a full body work-out (paddling engages your core, legs, arms, back, etc. as well as your hands & feet).
- You have a bathing suit, water bottle, sunscreen and are willing to be unplugged for our time on the water!
The whole SUP experience takes about 2.5 hours and includes:
- Board rental & all equipment needed delivered to the launch area (board, paddle, personal floataion device, anchor, waterproof bag, etc.)
- Instruction and safe practices for lauching, getting up on the board, navigating, etc.
- Instruction on proper paddling technique to save your back and shoulders while cruising the lake for the perfect yoga spot.
- A fun & relaxing guided 1 hour SUP yoga class tailored to your needs and skill level. You'll learn how to discern your balance on the board, navigate yoga poses and transitions, go with the flow of wind, waves, and flat water, all while finding your zen on a paddleboard. If it's hot we can dunk in lake for a swim! To top it off, there's nothing quite like a floating savasna on the water! So sublime and relaxing!
