Definition - What does SUP Yoga mean?
SUP (stand-up paddleboard) yoga, The yoga class is performed on a 10-11 foot inflatable paddleboard.
The practice may require different alignments than on solid earth because the board is continually moving. The yogi must make small adjustments in body position and weight distribution to counterbalance the movements of the board.
SUP yoga unites the sport of stand-up paddleboarding, which originated in Hawaii in the 1940s, with the ancient practice of yoga, which has its roots in India. Practicing yoga on a surface that is moving – like the paddle board – engages the core muscles and strengthens other muscles which wouldn't otherwise be used in earth-bound practice. SUP yoga also requires intense focus because transitioning between poses requires concentration to keep the board steady. Common asanas included in SUP yoga practice are downward-facing dog, the cat-cow combination, child’s pose and corpse pose.
