Yoga Boarding

What is Yoga Boarding? Imagine being out in the warm sunshine and imagine the space your yoga mat takes up. Now, imagine it a little longer, and floating on water! Sound impossible? Not with a stand up paddle board! SUP boards are designed to be very stable floatation devices, and only require your body’s natural balance abilities to stay upright. So what does that mean for your yoga routine? It means you can still have the relaxation and fitness benefits, now in the middle of the ocean! Balancing on the paddle board really works your core mid section and provides an exceptional workout. Weather you're a beginner or expert, young or old, yoga paddleboarding is a lot of fun so give it a try!

Janelle Smiley
Yogaboard Instructor

Hi, my name is Janelle Smiley. I am a Personal Trainer, Massage Therapist, and Yoga Enthusiast (student in training), and CPR certified. I was born and raised on the sunny beaches of Hollywood, FL and the water calls to me. I have been a part of canoe and kayak excursions all over Florida, both fresh and salt water. Paddling in the ocean makes you feel one with it – and I can’t get enough. I detest boring exercise so I am always trying to find new ways to challenge myself and my clients. When the opportunity presented itself to mix paddle boarding and other fitness modalities such as yoga, core training, resistance bands, swimming, and boot camp, I couldn’t help myself I had to teach this class. I can’t wait to evolve this new style of fitness with you, so come out and play.
