What if you could incorporate some powerful aspects of a yoga practice while standing and paddling the traditional SUP way? While your body moves with powerful, rhythmic and continuous paddling strokes your mind and spirit can engage in the sort of meditation and mindfulness that enhances a yoga practice. We invite you to explore Power of Presence SUP (P2SUP)
No matter where you live, if there is water there will be standup paddling. The same goes for SUP Yoga. There are hundreds of well-trained instructors leading beautiful classes for all abilities. Why do SUP yoga? There are so many reasons.
Ideally, when we do yoga on the water, we can let go of control or wanting to execute poses perfectly. At any moment, the wind or current can change everything. Whether you practice yoga the traditional way (on land) or enjoy SUP Yoga, we invite you explore a different practice – one we call Power of Presence SUP (P2SUP).
What is Power of Presence SUP (P2SUP)? Presence is a noun, not a verb; it is a state of being, not doing. Our moments on the water, on our boards while engaged in the joy of paddling are precious. To generate the most benefit and to consciously savor the experience you can enhance your SUP with “the power of presence.”
P2SUP is a series of articles and (eventually downloadable podcasts) that will guide your SUP experience. Our attitude, perspective and mindfulness designs our experience. With P2SUP we gain more than strength and flexibility of body as we paddle- our mind and spirit develop new perspective and focus. Be present and breathe!
P2SUP was inspired by my yoga practice, but does not include traditional SUP Yoga poses or movement. Come explore!
