Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) Yoga is just like traditional yoga, but it is done using a paddle board on the water rather inside a studio on a mat.
The SUP Yoga classes take place in Sunfish Cut on Algonquin Island, a popular lookout point with a spectacular view. Doing SUP Yoga on the Island is a rare and unique experience. The objective is that you have a spiritual experience when you are on the water and that you leave feeling reinvigorated and ready to start your week.
The class starts by meeting your instructor at Algonquin Bridge where you will learn the basics of SUP. You’ll then embark on a 15-minute paddle to the class destination. During this paddle you’ll practice paddling skills and balance. Upon arrival at the "Aqua Studio", your Yoga Instructor will guide you through a SUP Yoga class. After a 45-minute yoga session, everyone will pick up their paddles and meet the sunset around the corner with an opportunity for pictures in front of the iconic Toronto skyline.
This hybrid water activity is a great way to challenge your core by adding more levels of movement and balance as you immerse yourself in nature of the Toronto Islands. SUP Yoga can be whatever you want it to be whether you're looking for quiet meditation or a challenging workout with the Toronto city backdrop behind you. You can go at your own pace and pick variations of movements and poses led by your wonderful instructor. You don't need to have any SUP experience. Most people who participate in the SUP Yoga classes are first timers or relatively new to the sports of Yoga and SUP. You will be given a quick tutorial before heading out on the water.
