A SUP Experience
We are delighted to be collaborating with Island Feather to offer LANO students Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) experiences this summer.
With experienced & accredited instructors, Island Feather has combined their expertise to offer us the ultimate combination of paddleboarding, yoga, mindfulness & meditation.
Introduction To Paddleboarding
Island Feather Stand Up Paddleboard Lessons will take each customer through the basics of Stand Up Paddleboarding, including how to handle your equipment, board stance, water paddling, how to turn and how to fall. We stand by paddling on your knees, once you feel comfortable on the board, we teach you the best way to stand up.
SUP Yoga sessions take you through a series of yoga poses on a 10-foot paddle board to reap huge benefits to both your mind and body. Whilst embracing the elements in our natural surroundings the classes will offer you the feeling of total
freedom. Practicing yoga on a surface that is moving engages core muscles and strengthens other muscles which wouldn’t otherwise be used on the earth’s surface. SUP yoga also requires focus to transition between poses and to keep the board steady. Common asanas included in SUP yoga practice are downward-facing dog, the cat-cow combination, child’s pose and corpse pose.
SUP Mindfulness & Meditation
SUP Mindfulness & Meditation involves sitting on a 10-foot paddleboard, taking you through the present moment of your thoughts, feelings, the sounds around you & the sensations of breathing or parts of your body. Floating on a 10-foot paddleboard, in a natural environment, enhances the benefits of mindfulness & meditation and will help untangle and let go of a negative mindset to create space for a clear & calm mind for a better well-being.
