SUP (Stand Up Paddle) Boarding Basics

This is a beginner-friendly session where one of our staff will take you to Warner Lake for a 2 hour session, offering instruction to those who are new to Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boarding or want to improve their SUP boarding skills. Warner Lake is a small, non-motorized lake surrounded by park and is scenic, calm, and full of wildlife. The park's thick, surrounding woods and foliage keep the clean, clear water smooth throughout the year, providing a perfect location for learning SUP. The staff instructor is available to help make the transition into stand up paddle boarding easy and fun for a greater appreciation of this popular sport. This is a fantastic opportunity for a family or group to experience the fast-growing sport of SUP boarding in a safe, fun and secluded environment. Price includes two way shuttle, board, paddle, and life jacket. (max class size = 8 participants)

  • 2 Hr Class for 1 to 3 people: $46/person
  • 2 Hr Class for 4 to 8 people: $36/person

SUP Yoga

ANYONE can do SUP Yoga, it’s up to you to feel out your level of comfort.

The art of practicing Yoga on a SUP board offers a greater challenge of balance and awareness than your normal Yoga session. You will ebb & flow on high quality state of the art SUP yoga boards, balancing yin & yang, sun & moon, finding your natural rhythm within the fluctuations and cycles of the natural world. SUP Yoga can be easy stretching and breathing or a vigorous challenging vinyasa (flow). Occasionally, you’ll go into “Fallasana” pose or “falling off the board into the water” pose – and that’s awesome! Falling teaches us humility, persistence, to face our fears and to have a good time and laugh. For this class, your certified yoga instructor will shuttle you 2 miles to Warner Lake. Warner Lake is a small, non-motorized lake surrounded by park and is scenic, calm, and full of wildlife. The park's thick, surrounding woods and foliage keep the clean, clear water smooth throughout the year, providing a perfect location for doing SUP Yoga. Price includes two way shuttle, board, paddle, life jacket, and certified yoga instructor. (max class size = 7 participants)
