California Yoga Sport & SUP Yoga: Water, Sun, & Endless Fun!


SUP Yoga with OnBoard FitnessAre you looking to the push the envelope of your Yoga practice… try new things.. take it to new places..and truly test your physical & mental limits?! Well, whatever it is that you are searching for as an athlete with a yoga habit, CYS has the solution to your studio boredom & we’ve decided to throw a new element into the mixture.

You may have heard of the growing popularity of SUP, Stand Up Paddleboarding, which is gaining momentum in areas like Hawaii, Florida, & Southern California and now all over the world! This past weekend trainers & Oakley Women Ambassadors, Lacey Calvert & Francesca Lollini, became certified in SUP Yoga with OnBoard Fitness. Continually expanding the type of dynamic yoga CYS offers & advocating the incredibly unique benefits of taking your practice to the water.

The benefits of SUP Yoga are endless. Not only are you receiving the perks of a full body work out interacting with several elements of nature–earth, wind, water–but when it comes time for down dog on water & waves it takes an immense amount of core strength, focus, & balance to stay on board. The challenge of centering yourself, bringing stillness to instability on the paddle board, finding that absolute balance between push & pull or yin & yang, is what the practice is all about. Immediately you will be overcome by the calming energy of the water & the ability to rock and shift yourself further into postures on the board than you ever thought possible on a yoga mat. This isn’t something you can get in a studio, so we encourage you to try it out & see for yourself the unique experience of SUP Yoga.

Be sure to locate a SUP offering near you & give it a try for yourself! If you are looking for classes in the Bay Area be sure to check out class offerings by CYS instructors at OnBoard Fitness.

Curious how the Oakley Women took on the challenge of learning how to SUP?!

This full body work out incorporating paddling, balance, focus, & core strength will be sure to leave you with an energized feeling & challenged muscles. Our fellow Oakley & SUP friends over at SUP Core put together the perfect healthy work out for a SUP addict if you find yourself out for a Paddle.

Oakley Athlete Trainer Noelle Kozak & Taylor Knox have outlined the perfect interval circuit for a core strengthening SUP session. Read more here, Paddle Healthy: Working Your Core, on SuptheMag.com!
