Bend it like Sarah-rose
Yoga is a fantastic way to put our calm on. It is, of course, an excellent way to keep fit. Yoga aficionados report that yoga is sufficient for improving and maintaining one's good health and fitness. Understandable, when one thinks about all the poses and sequence of poses that one does at any yoga session. The heart gets going; limbs are stretched; overall flexibility is improved; balance is retained and maintained; blood flows to all parts of the body, even to the hair follicles; and internal organs are massaged and stimulated. Other types of exercise and physical activity would be hard put to making the same claim, especially with the last three mentioned.

SUPPING or stand-up paddle boarding is a leisurely soft-sport that can be enjoyed on calm waters or in the surf. In order to keep a comfortable standing, balancing position on the board, one would have to engage one's core muscles. The action of paddling and the desired speediness in the water can add to make this activity strenuous or less so.

SUP Yoga is practicing Yoga on a SUP. To enable doing the poses, SUP Yoga is best done in calm waters. Easily said than done: the simplest of asanas can prove challenging, at best. If the tree pose does not affect any challenge on land, then doing it on water may produce some.

Among these laudable things, Sarah is also a lover of Yoga, meditation and the ocean. A combination perfect to make her an excellent SUP Yoga teacher. In conjunction with Ocean Addicts, she holds twice-weekly classes at Cotton Tree. Bookings may be made at Ocean Addicts's website or directly through Sarah at her Yogaverse Facebook page.



Whether to only try it out once or a few times, or be out in the fresh air and in our beautiful Sunshine Coast nature and waters, give SUP Yoga a go. You might find the added element of floating on a board as calming and grounding as any meditation can.
