Paddleboard yoga is a yoga class held on a stand up paddle (SUP) board and is also called SUP Yoga. SUP yoga challenges your balance skills and core stability by incorporating a floating mat into the yoga practice. No SUP experience is necessary to take this class, but a basic familiarity with yoga is helpful. My floating yoga studio is mobile and can bring a paddle yoga class anywhere on Pender Island and beyond.
