thumbsup yoga: SUP Yoga Teacher Training Certification & Immersions

SUP yoga is a physical workout. It's a spiritual practice. It's an outing. It's an adventure. It's an uncovering. As the teacher, you could guide the direction with your energy, theme, sequence and language for one, some or all of the above.

Thumbsup Yoga SUP Yoga Teacher Training - Darien YMCA - July 2016

The purpose of this training is to equip the teacher with the dry-land and on-board education to safely, effectively and confidently lead a stand up paddle board yoga class on flat water. 

From nuts to bolts (or nose to tail), components of a SUP Yoga class to be discussed include: equipment, class preparations, effective sequencing, suggested considerations and business development. 

This training has been designed to underscore the fundamentals and entice inquiry into the possibility of a constellation of illuminations on-board.

Guiding an understanding of, a relationship to and a balance with nature is some of the many reasons why being a SUP Yoga Teacher is so impactful. To open up the experience on board to all that possibility may instill confidence and joy in the possibilities of other facets of the practitioners' life.
