Louisiana's Original Floating
SUP YOGA Studio
EXPERIENCE OUR FLOATING YOGA STUDIO
WHAT IS SUP YOGA?
SUP (Stand-Up paddleboard ) Yoga
Performed on a stand-up paddle board floating in the waters of the local waterways and pools.We have a range of classes to meet your needs. We offer beginner to more advanced classes.
We meet under the awning for an introduction to our floating yoga studio.
After a quick introduction and safety review we introduce you to your yoga “board” for today. You then swim out to your SUP board that is per-anchored to stay stable in pool. Your certified SUP Yoga teacher will guide you through a practice that starts slowly, letting you get used to the floating surface. (feeling the energy below).
You will then move into a more energetic flow before slowing down to cool off with restorative poses and the greatest Savasana you’ve ever experienced (really!). Sky above you, waters below you, surrounded by nature, sun and water… What could be more perfect?
All ages welcome.

SUP Yoga Class Description:
Slow Flow/Restorative – is a gentle vinyasa practice with little to no chaturanga ( high to low plank). We focus on strengthen the shoulders and opening the heart and hips. We work with restorative type poses using the board as our prop. This class is great for beginners or for advance yogis needing to slow down.
Aqua Beats- is a vinyasa flow class based on a style of power yoga with modifications to a paddleboard. We also throw in a couple partner poses and this is all set to Reggae and Beach music. Think of a “Beach Party “ except on the paddleboard. This class is sure to have you sweaty and laughing all at the same time.
Fun and Fire -is a a much intenser class with holding poses and we introduce arm balancing and headstands. Along with fun Partner poses mixed with Acro-yoga. This class is sure to get you Fired up and maybe in the pool! Step out your comfort zone!
*more styles of SUP Yoga will be added during summer months.
