Stand up Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga

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.

Alex is both a 200 hour qualified yoga teacher, an ASI SUP instructor and a qualified ASI SUP yoga instructor, so you're in very safe hands. , but you must be able to swim 50m unaided.

Additional Information

1On-site facilities
Wittering SUP/Yoga/Swim HQ is based at Arden Sailing Club where we have toilets, changing rooms, light refreshments, picnic tables and secure parking onsite.
2Required Equipment
Swimming costume/old clothes/wetsuit Water shoes or a pair of old trainers Change of clothes (When you emerge from the water, even on a hot day you can experience an “after drop” in your body temperature, it is really important to bring something warm to wear) Towel We will provide you with a brightly coloured tow float, this is essential open water swim gear and we recommend that you get one if you are planning on swimming in open water.
3What should you wear?
Between April and mid May you will need to wear a wetsuit which you will need to provide yourselves. From Mid May onwards wetsuits are optional, the water will steadily climb to its peak in August of around 18 degrees where it will stay until the end of September. 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.
4Recommended Equipment
Goggles (if you wear contact lenses it is advisable to wear goggle during your swim) Swim hat Ear plugs (if you have inner ear issues these can be really helpful) Neoprene gloves Please arrive 15 mins prior to your session time in order that you can get changed into your gear.
5Feeling 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 :)
