What is SUP YOGA?
SUP Yoga is a fusion of yoga and stand up paddle boarding where you are able to bring your practice on the water and under the sun. Yoga classes on the water challenge your core strength, balance skills and help center your focus.
Description Of Class:
Our SUP Yoga classes are 90 minutes long. We dedicate the beginning of each class to teaching students how to properly use a paddle board and paddle out to the water where the boards are anchored. The remainder of the class is spent practicing yoga on our boards while floating.
Classes are open all levels and ages of students. Options are given throughout the class to accommodate varying yoga practices
What to bring and wear:
Students in the class are typically barefoot and dressed comfortably for “downward dog on a SUP”. Women typically wear an athletic top and bottom. Men typically wear athletic shorts and sometimes a sunshirt. If you need to wear sunglasses, please bring croakies. It is recommended to also bring sunscreen and water.
Cancellations and Weather:
Please note that there is a 24 hour cancellation policy. No refunds or reschedules will be made within 24 hours of the scheduled class. In the event of inclement weather, classes will be re-scheduled to a future date and you will be notified in advance.

About the Instructors:
Caroline's love for yoga and the outdoors is contagious. She is 260 hr International Yoga Alliance Certified by Anna Laurita of Davannayoga in Vinyasa/Thai massage and SUPYOGA/A.C.E certified by Lazy Dog Paddle Yoga. Caroline's playful blend of challenging classes and a sense of humor provide for a truly inspiring class. She is passionate to get others outside, be active, and grow. When not teaching yoga on water, Caroline teaches classes at Infinity Yoga, actively participates in SUP races, and spends as much time as possible seeking new adventures outside.
“The intention of the class is to have people reconnect with the outdoors and the water. Many Atlantans have no idea just how close they are to water, trails and the quiet of being outside. The classes are surreal. Yoga just seems to make sense on the boards: you’re floating, a heron will fly overhead and all you hear are the leaves around you rustling in the wind. I am honored to share it with others."
