SUP Yoga

SUP Yoga

SUP Yoga is the latest craze to hit the fitness world. And all for the right reasons. It is exceptionally good for the core, improves balance, concentration and strength. Not only is it good for your body, it is good for your soul. With the gentle movement of the water and sunrise over the Cairns skyline, you can't help but relax. 

When you combine yoga practice with the natural elements of sun, water and fresh air, you get the added benefits nature provides. Due to the unstable platform, it enables advanced core strength, increasing the challenge of the traditional yoga moves. And....It's FUN!!! 

The Yoga Hub Cairns are providing us with our wonderful yoga teachers. They are all experienced in all aspects of yoga practice. Suitable for all levels, beginners welcome. 

We will be working with the YogaHub to bring SUP Yoga workshops to some of the most beautiful nature spots in Cairns. Private sessions are available for group bookings (eg. hens/bucks, team building, special occasions). 

Workshops & Group bookings

Such a perfect way to spend our Saturday morning. Had so much fun with Allie and the group, already can't wait for the next one :) . Allie was so patient and had time for everyone, teaching us all the tips on how to get the best experience. Great to meet some locals too. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of my 9.5 paddle run!! :) This is a must do!!
