It all started when...

I paddle board taxi'ed students to the ThumbSUP Yoga floating BOGA studio at the Wanderlust Festival in Snowshoe, West Virginia. Three classes held court in the hollows of a chorus of pines. The sound of merriment kicked back from the nettles in the woods while the blue boards danced with the lake.

The ThumbSUP Yoga BOGA studio in Connecticut lies on the border of Stamford and Darien. It resides in the pond named Holly, after a lady or a tree. We use the hard top boards at the Darien YMCA.

They live in shack, fitted so that the boards can neatly stack. Housed a few feet from the pond, the blue boards step out with a welcoming glide.

I like how BOGA YOGA boards are wide to promote stability and ease. I like how the soft tops are long, holding hands and feet in down dog. I like that the texture of the tops have a nice grip. I love how the sentiment on these wonderful boards is echoed among so many that try and are compelled to feel -  Two thumbs up, all the way.
