SUP Yoga | 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.

Enjoy the bliss of mother nature and take your yoga practice off land and into the water!
 
Briefly review the fundamentals of paddleboarding and water safety on land and then join us in the water as we warm up with a paddle to a pristine "floating yoga studio" in the Intracoastal Waterways of Wrightsville Beach. Surrounded by nature, we will flow through a complete yoga practice available to all levels. SUP Yoga helps to build core strength and integration while cultivating awareness of the true present moment.
