If you're looking for an exciting, new activity this summer, SUP (stand up paddle) yoga may be your answer! It's a great way to challenge your balance abilities, destress through deep breathing, and enjoy the summer weather all at the same time.
This type of approach to yoga is offered by Floating Bliss SUP Yoga based in Eau Claire. SUP Yoga takes place on an anchored board within a quite spot on the lake. Locations include Lake Altoona, Dells Pond/Mt. Simon, or Coon Fork Lake.
No experience paddle boarding or practicing yoga is required. Floating Bliss offers many different sessions that can help people at any level of balance and athletic ability find what works for them.
Adult Paddle + Yoga (Ages 15+):
90-minute class that begins with a lesson about paddle basics. The lesson is followed by 45 minutes of yoga and open paddle.

Paddle Core & More (Ages 15+):
