Picture this, a bright summer morning on a calm sea. You’re lying on your paddle board staring at the clouds and taking a break from your workout.
Wait, a workout on the water?? Yes!
Paddle board yoga is a challenging and popular way to find your center. Plus: You really can’t beat the view. Here’s just a few reasons why you should give it a try:
1. It’s Good For Your Health
It’s yoga, duh.
2. It Encourages Advanced Core Strength
Exercising on an unstable platform forces you to use those core stabilizing muscles, making this different from traditional yoga. The added level gives added benefits, and it’s still easy enough for the average yogi!
3. It’s A New Way to Appreciate Nature
This is not a workout you will dread. You get to spend a day out on the water, whats better than that?
4. It’s A Great Way to Bond With Friends
A good way to switch it up from your average coffee date or happy hour….Or maybe happy hour after?
5. It’s Open to Everyone!
Paddle board yoga has been to taught to toddlers, elderly and everyone in between. It doesn’t require as much technical skills other board sports like surfing and the board isn’t very heavy.
So get out on the water and give it a try!
