An Attempt at Yoga on a Paddle Board

Yoga on a Paddle Board can be an adventure by itself, depending upon wind, and movement on the board.

So it happened, I got a paddle board, and am now doing yoga on it. It worked out pretty well the first time, but then with wind and some little waves (and wake from other boats) it was actually pretty tough. However, no matter what it looks and feels great!

You too can do some yoga on the paddle board. Start with downward dog, which is easy to balance. It was Warrior pose that was more difficult, and I gave up before I even tried to do a tree pose. The wind was carrying me so fast to shallower water I was concerned that I could fall on a rock and hurt myself.

However, much like life, we follow what nature brings us and continue on. I tried a number of poses, plank being a favorite, and did what I could. Half the battle was the paddling back up so I could start over again. Meaning, paddling through the wind, and the waves to get to a stopping place so I could start over. (yes laugh out loud here…)

This heatwave has been amazing for an opportunity to try different ways of social distancing and I must admit I am quite happy! Next I will have to try juggling!! Handstands are a ways off, but not out of the picture. I would LOVE to accomplish that by the end of this summer.
