KAYAK YOGA 


THURSDAYS: 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM
SATURDAYS: 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
DEPARTS FROM MANLY KAYAK CENTRE WHARF

Class Format:

25-30 minute paddle on double kayaks to a pristine beach location

 30-60 minute yoga session on the sand followed by an optional quick swim

 25-30 minute paddle back to base
Treat your senses to a session or two in the most scenic and naturally beautiful studio in Sydney. Practicing on the sand is completely unlike practicing on hardwood floorboards. Expect the ripples of the sand and uneven surface of our beach studios to test your alignment and soften your fall as you find new ground in your practice. Does that mean you need to be an experienced yogi to come along? Not at all. Classes are a blend of hatha, vinyasa and modern power flow with variations, modifications and options allowing you work at your individual level. After all, you're here for you and no one else. Let the waves guide your breath and the birds chirp you to stillness. 
Expect to get sandy, to laugh, to recharge and to come back to the beach as a slightly different person than you were when you arrived.
There's a healing way of the ocean, all you have to do is show up.

SUP yoga is Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga; there's no other practice like it. This is nature absolutely showing off and we get to be a part of it! Wear your swimmers, expect to laugh until your abs are sore and to do some asanas in between. This is not about elite yoga, this is just good old fashioned fun.Embrace the imperfections, the splashes and reconnect to what yoga is really about. 
Don't you dare go thinking you have to be a levitating yoga jedi in order to conquer a SUP yoga class. The simple and exquisite truth about this practice is that it can cater to every level of fitness and experience. For some, simply standing in tadasana is a huge accomplishment, then you get the added benefit of a tan and a swim in the best part of Sydney's inner harbour. For others, yoga on floorboards has given them the fundamentals to be bold and explorative to take more challenging or advanced variations on poses. This is about finding new territory, questioning the limitations of the mind and conquering the inevitable fear of falling in. If there was ever a place to fall on your face, certainly it's here. Trust your board to tell you little secrets about your practice. You'll know very quickly if you have a tendency to put more weight on one side or a tendency not to activate your core. Then reap the sweet rewards of your efforts as you float deeply into your savasana with your fingertips in the water listening to the rhythm of the waves lapping under your board. Heaven on earth.  

SUP Fitness

MONDAY: 9:30AM - 11:00 AM
TUESDAY: 6:00 AM -  7:00 AM



Class format:

Overview of basic paddle technique while on land
 
60 - 90 minutes of high intensity interval training drills, plyometric movements, body weight exercises all while on water with the shoreline safely in sight

Imagine yourself in an overcrowded gym listening to crappy music staring at a blank wall while you run for eternity... in place... on a treadmill. 
Now imagine yourself floating on the ocean, listening to the birds and the waves as you flow dynamically through movements your body has never tried before. OK, slight exaggeration but you get the point!  Simply standing up on a stand up paddle board is a challenge for most of us. It requires an immense amount of core control and stability throughout every one of your connective tissues. The combination of balancing on water while coordinating full body movements engages muscles that you didn't even know you had. It's almost like tricking the brain into thinking you're just out enjoying a scenic paddle with your mates, but by the end you'll walk away feeling the burn absolutely everywhere. In these classes we don't paddle very far from shore, every moment is spent engaged in high intensity, low impact, full body plyometrics.
