The skies are clear and the air is warm on this beautiful island of Alameda, and it’s the perfect time to get out there and try something fun in the sun! That’s why the team at Symmetry Yoga Alameda is excited to bring you Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga!
Stand Up Paddleboarding (or SUP for short) is one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever experience. SUP takes place on a long, wide, and buoyant surf board, with a paddle custom-fit to your height. You plant your feet on the special grip-enhanced surface, engage your core, and use the paddle to navigate across the water. It’s a great opportunity to tone your arms and abs, it helps you strengthen your “balance muscles” (which are the first line of defense against joint injury) and supports your posture by strengthening your back and side-body.
The only thing better than SUP on it’s own is SUP plus Yoga, which offers all the same benefits as regular SUP times ten! The “balance muscles” get a great workout from yoga alone, so combining it with SUP is the perfect recipe for toned muscles and healthy connective tissues. This balance challenge adds more to every pose and enhances your focus on the practice. In our busy lives, it can be difficult to focus, but when you’re out on the bay, with the sounds of the water lapping on your board and the breeze in your hair, with an extra balance challenge to boot, you’ll be sure to “drop in” to your practice with ease!
SUP Yoga is a great way to get out in nature, build strength, burn calories, and integrate mind, body and spirit.
And here’s the best part: the Symmetry Yoga Alameda team will be offering a special SUP Yoga workshop September 18th from 10am-2pm. Check out the Symmetry Yoga Alameda workshop schedule to find out more!
