SUP Yoga | Beginner/ Open

This class is taught by:

Julie Pelikan

Like many, my yoga practice began as a physical practice. Over time it has grown to become much deeper than I ever imagined. “The greatest journeys in life are the ones that answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask!” Unknown. I feel yoga has been that journey for me, and it is just the beginning! Yoga has changed my life in amazing ways. After a yoga retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica, I knew I wanted to share the gift of yoga with others. I completed my 200 hour Kunga Yoga Teacher Training at Wilmington Yoga Center with Noelle Cavanaugh and I currently am completing the WYC Teaching Internship and Mentorship.
My classes are composed of fun and powerful flows with a focus on connection to the breath. My inspirations are Music, The Ocean, Nature, Family, friends, my teachers and fellow students.
Are you ready to meet a blissful experience on the water? Don't worry! We were beginners once too! Our beginner/ open SUP Yoga class is perfect for those with little to no yoga or paddleboarding experience.*
Our seasoned SUPY teacher will first teach SUP and Yoga FUNdamentals on land before taking our skills into the water. Once we jump on our SUP boards we will try a few paddle drills to refine our technique and then paddle to our "floating yoga studio" where you will enjoy a basic yoga flow that helps to balance the muscles used in SUP. End your yoga practice with a delightful rest and mediation followed by a short paddle back to land. SUP Yoga helps to build core strength and integration while cultivating awareness of the true present moment.
This class is seasonal and is weather dependent. Classes will be canceled 30 minutes prior to class start time if weather is not in our favor.
*Swimming skills are required.
