Is your yoga routine getting a little stale? If you’re looking for a new challenge, yoga on a stand up paddleboard will reinvigorate you and push you to become an even better yogi than you thought possible — all while enjoying the natural splendor of floating on water. FIVE reasons you need to:
It’s a better workout.
Since the platform is unstable, you have to engage your core more for better balance. Your whole midsection will have to work to keep you balanced and afloat. You have to work harder and focus more on the water.
It will refine your technique.
You’ll be more in tune with your poses. For example, during downward dog, if you have more weight on one side, your board will let you know.
It’s more calming.
The sensation of floating helps to alleviate the heaviness that life sometimes throws on our shoulders.
It will help you focus on your breath.
Ujjayi Pranayama, or Ocean Breath, is a popular yoga method for breathing because the “ocean” sound is believed to soothe your mind. The gentle sound of water lapping while on a paddleboard will help you relax and key you in to the most important aspect of yoga: your breath.
Standing up on a paddle board gives you a unique perspective of both the water and the horizon. It’s as close as you can get to walking on water, and the possibility of falling helps practitioners really focus on themselves and their poses.
