About ALL SUP Classes: SUP is short for Stand Up Paddleboard. Boards, paddles, lifevests and all equipment is included in the cost of the class. Our boards are high quality SUP fitness boards that are stable, wide and grippy. At the start of each class, Water Dog provides on-deck safety & paddle instruction.
SUP YOGA combines regular yoga with yoga on a SUP board, which is essentially a floating yoga mat. Generally, Water Dog classes will start with getting yogis comfortable on the boards and meditating to the ocean movements in easy stabilizing poses. We work up to vinyasas and more challenging poses, but always finishing with a magical savasana. allowing you to connect with nature and the water during your yoga practice!
