Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

SUP and Yoga

on November 2, 2015

On Saturday I joined a group from Edinburgh University Yoga Society to do a session of SUP followed by yoga. 

It was really nice to try Stand Up Paddleboarding again and I got better at paddling in a vaguely straight line. 

Wilderness SUP are a lot more relaxed so we didn’t get given life jackets or wetsuits. It was fine as the canal is very shallow and I didn’t feel like I was going to fall in at any point. The type of Paddleboards were different from last time too as they were inflatable. This meant that they say higher on the water than the other solid ones I used last time. 

After a nice 45 minute paddle down the canal we got back to the car park, the one person who fell in got changed, and the we headed to the garden to do a short yoga session. 

It was really nice to practice outside even in October. It really made me feel grounded and more connected to nature. I need to try to practice outside more often even in not so great weather. 

As we finished practice it started to spit and by the time I’d got back to the car it was properly pouring with rain.  

I didn’t manage to try any yoga poses on the board but maybe next time.
