 On Saturday I did SUP Yoga. It was at the What - Sup - Fitness Studio in Hout Bay.

I loved it! It was so much fun. I didn't get bored once. You are so focused on staying on the board, each yoga pose works your core strength each and every second. The studio is owned by Kim Krapf, and the lesson was given by Carey-Anne, who is a wonderful yoga teacher. It's almost like hot yoga, because the pool is heated, and the room is warm. The music Carey plays is wonderful, creating an atmospheric environment.

Do it if you want to: get 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, according to Namaste Yoga. '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's fun. It's well-known that novelty is important in exercise regimens in order to stay motivated and happy. According to the National Institute of Health, 'Mixing it up' also helps to reduce boredom and cut your risk of injury.' There are many types of yoga but it's still easy to fall into a rut. Trying paddleboard yoga will keep you on your toes.
