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.
