Ready to practice yoga with a difference? Why not reset your body and your mind in a whole new way this summer with accredited ASI SUP yoga instructor, Alex Wittering


New to paddleboarding? New to yoga? Doesn't matter all; our classes are carefully planned and curated so that anyone can have a go, and there is space to go at your own pace, perhaps challenge yourself or just enjoy a new experience.

SUP yoga is all about getting outdoors and embracing a new perspective. The added challenge of being on the water really helps to bring you into the moment, and even the simplest of poses can become challenging for even the most practised of yogis!

What you'll be doing...

We will meet at a stunning, secluded, private lake in Malvern, under the hills in breathtaking surroundings. We will have a short on-land briefing covering safety, equipment and any questions you might have before paddling out to the anchor rig where we will practice for an hour before heading back to base.

You will be able to try out various poses and postures on the calm, flat water of the lake without boat traffic or other water users to worry about. Alex will give you postures to suit your ability and options to challenge yourself if you like, you don’t need to have experience.

I attended a skills session with Alex and James yesterday and had a brilliant time. The session was planned for 09.30 to 14.30 but actually finished at 16.00 due to everyone having such a lovely time. Alex and James did not rush anyone and were totally responsive to individual needs. The session included, theory, turning and rescue skills, improving individual techniques and loads and loads of fun. Plenty of time on the river with drink and biscuits provided. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending Wittering SUP to others. I have total faith in Alex and James. My wife will be booking a 1 to 1 session in the near future. Many thanks Steve

Booked as a surprise for my 40th Birthday. Was meant to go on Saturday but the wind was too strong. Alex was amazing and managed to reschedule us for another day before we went home. Was soo much fun…. Including the cold water and jelly legs 🤣 Alex and James were so patient and a lot of fun to learn from. Thank you and can’t recommend this company enough.

Had the most amazing first ever introduction to paddle boarding, I love yoga and had the opportunity to try this out in a SUPyoga session. I felt nervous at first but Alex helped me feel relaxed on the board with great instruction and her yoga teaching was perfect on the water too. Thank you, I’ll be back!

The whole session from start to finish was awesome! James was fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone thinking of trying SUP for the first time, or looking to improve their skills and confidence to book a session with him and the team. It was a blast!

What a brilliant family experience. James and Alex took their time to coach us and we felt safe but had fun at the same time. By far the best part of our holiday.

We are two 70 year olds who were given paddle boarding lessons as a birthday treat . We were inevitably rather nervous before we started but James and Alex took such trouble and patience to help us relax and make us feel we could actually do it. The afternoon was magical as we paddled up the blissful Avon enjoying the river and our new found skill. Anne

I can't recommend these guys enough. Such a fantastic location and the facilities were great. Our instructors were really engaging and very experienced. They knew the river really well and made us feel very safe. I really enjoyed my morning session.

A great couple of hours for my first paddle boarding experience, giving me confidence to build on for the future. The session was professionally delivered by James, and took place in a beautiful setting on the calm waters of the river Avon. It would have been helpful to know that you had to turn in at the farm shop ( did we miss this in the instructions?). The toilet and shower facilities were an excellent surprise. Thank you James and Alex I hope to join you again to check that I have remembered everything correctly.

Additional Information

1On-site facilities
Please be aware there are no toilets or changing facilities on site but there are plenty of trees and bushes!
2What should you wear?
You will need to dress for the weather in light quick drying gym wear. On cooler days a wetsuit is optional (we do not provide them) but they can be restrictive. Personally I prefer layers of light tight fitting gym wear that will dry quickly. There is of course a possibility of falling in, so bring a towel and a change of clothes, something warm to put on afterwards just in case. A bottle of water, suncream and perhaps a hat for a hot day. If the weather is looking a little wet bring a light rain coat (pac-a-mac). SUP yoga in the rain is MAGICAL but maybe not if you are feeling chilly! During the warmer months I recommend just a swimming costume or leggings and a t-shirt if you prefer. If you have any circulation problems neoprene gloves can be very helpful and water shoes are a must (old trainers will do in a pinch). When we meet we will discuss this as part of our initial briefing and make sure you are kitted out appropriately.
3Feeling a little unsure?
New skills outside of our comfort zone can always seem a little daunting, but we are always SO much more capable than we think we are. We are passionate about making sure everybody feels safe, confident and happy with their experience; our approach is gentle, supportive and compassionate and you have nothing to worry about; we’ll look after you :)
4Refund & Cancellation Policy
We have to plan ahead and session spaces are limited so we offer a full refund if you notify us of your cancellation 2 weeks before your session or a 50% refund a week before your booked session (gift voucher sessions are non-refundable). We only operate under the safest conditions, as such if the weather (wind), or water (flow/flood) conditions are not appropriate for beginner’s lessons we will notify you and arrange a more suitable date for your experience.
