Yoga on a Stand Up Paddle Board
If you like water, waves, beach and summer – we promise you will just adore paddle board Yoga!
We have compiled relevant information about SUP Yoga for you. Many people hesitate and are critical: Yoga on a paddle board? Really? How? We say confidentially yes! A super relaxing but also exhausting Yoga-Workout in the midst of nature connected with a lot of fun.
Paddle board Yoga is currently rapidly increasing in popularity. The Paddle Board becomes the yoga mat. With every exercise the balance of the board must be maintained at the same time of the pose – this ensures every single muscle in the body is trained.
All you need is a paddle board, the paddle and your bathing suit (or shorts).
Theoretically, yoga exercises can be done on any paddle board. Practically, however, this is not always easy: depending on the board volume and size, it can be too shaky. Boards with a larger volume offer enormous advantages through stability (this is especially true for paddle board Yoga beginners). As you generally want a Yoga paddle board to be a bit more stable, you should focus on special Yoga boards, which we also review here:
Yoga inflatable paddle boards are mostly stable, robust all-around stand up paddle boards with some important additional features:
• slightly wider than normal
• often enlarged, soft & non-slippery surface in the middle of the board for maximum grip
• Paddle holders (lateral) for fixing the paddles during the yoga session
• the carrying handle is not located in the middle of the board
We recommend boards with the dimensions
|Lenght: ||10´-12'6 (>3,2m)|
|Volume:||from ~200 Liter (depending on your weight and ability)|
