Want to take your yoga practice to the next level? It may be time to dive in and explore SUP yoga benefits. What is this refreshing form of our favorite physical and mental exercise? And why should you give it a try this summer?
Mystery solved: SUP is Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Now, we love paddleboarding because it calls on the muscles of the core and can improve balance. Not to mention the workout all of your supporting muscles get! When you combine SUP with yoga, you can see some fantastic results – and have a terrific time.
SUP yoga benefits include:
- Improved strength
- Improved cardiovascular health
- Increased flexibility and balance
- Improved circulation
- Decreased stress
Fun. Yes, that’s also a key benefit! So, how does it work?
Typically, your instructor will lead you in a short warm-up paddle to introduce you to the equipment. It’s helpful to get your sea legs under you! Then, you’ll move into some seated breathing and basic poses (e.g., sun salutation). If you’re ready, you can move into more advanced poses. Trust us: downward dog on a paddleboard is no small challenge!
What if you’ve never done stand-up paddleboarding? No worries! It can even add to the fun. Remember, each wiggle and wobble as you try to maintain balance works your core and other muscles – without you even realizing it! (Pro tip: this can help you tone up and stay healthy while living the wine lifestyle.)
After a session on the water, it’s the perfect time to indulge in a clean, healthy treat: Natura perfectly complements the yoga and healthy-living wine lifestyle. Just don’t have a glass before you try paddleboarding!
This summer, commit to trying something new. SUP yoga empowers you to get out, enjoy the sunshine and water, and feel an incredible sense of accomplishment.
