Intro to SUP with your PUP
Join Water Dog and animal trainer, Andrea Bogle, from Animal Smart Training for an ?? Intro to SUP with your Pup class!
Held on the beach ACROSS from Water Dog’s Houseboat Studio, for this special class we will introduce you and your pup to the SUP board! First, your pup will get to experience some wobble and agility equipment on land to prepare them and get their balance warmed up. Then, when we introduce them to the board we start on land and then move them onto an anchored board in the water at shoreline. #Instagramworthyphotos ?
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE?
We will work with your pup on training and gaining confidence in class, but if YOU want to be confident on the board and be equipped to go for a paddle around the lagoon (assuming water and wind conditions are in your favor), we encourage you to take a paddle conditioning class beforehand to get your paddle skills on. You can see upcoming class dates here: https://waterdog.cc/booking/

– Pup must be able to swim or be comfortable around water and happy to wear a fashionable life vest (all teams going for a spin away from shore *dependent on skills, weather and water conditions* must have vest on their pup)

Beer Yoga at NUECES BREWING Co.
***New location for BEER YOGA! We’ll be at the brand new NUECES BREWING CO.! It will be held the last Thursday of the month. $15 includes your first beer and 60 mins of yoga, outside on the deck. Our next class is Thursday September 26th at 7pm
Yoga and drinking beer are both relaxing: For this special class we will focus on slowing down and being present. However, this is not a class where you sip & set your beverage down beside your mat – we will incorporate our beer into almost every single pose!! Which means you will have to heighten your focus and concentration so as not to drop your beer!
No yoga experience is necessary, just an open mind and love of beer. This is an all levels yoga class. Please bring your own mat.
*Limited availability and pre-registration required: https://waterdog.cc/booking
**Note: class is not included in the membership packages
