This was my second time on a paddleboard and my first time doing yoga on it. I loved it and the confidence of the teacher made me feel confident myself. I didn't think you could actually relax on a moving paddleboard!

I took the Sup Yoga teacher training this weekend and it was life changing. I originally signed up to take it in order to deepen my yoga practice on the water but after taking the class I truly feel I would love to teach. I have been paddle boarding for about three years and doing yoga practice on my board for about two and I love it, but this course made me love it more. EVERYTHING was covered, safety, paddle and paddle equipment, Yoga poses and modifications as well as the actual business of running your own floating yoga studio. The wind was not cooperating but Jess was able to find alternative locations on the water for us to continue the training. I am a resident of St. Augustine so I am familiar with the area but one of the other students was not. Jess took us to all the favorite local spots to give the out of town student a full idea of what life in St. Augustine was like as well as the different water options available to her. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning more or truly wants their own floating studio.
