In the last few years, we’ve seen a rise in the variety of yoga styles available for practice. From yoga with goats to hot yoga, there are kinds of ways to practice your meditative exercise in any way that best suits you. One of the most interesting ways to practice meditation is with stand-up yoga, also known as SUP yoga.
Combine your love for being out on the water with this meditative practice by trading your mat for your paddle board and heading outside. SUP yoga is best practiced in the most breathtaking of landscapes to get you in the right headspace for ultimate relaxation. You can do it in calm waters of oceans, lakes, or rivers, or even chest-deep in urban waterways.
When you practice SUP yoga, you reap the following benefits:
- You will increase the strength and balance drawn from your core with each pose
- Greater awareness of your body, for each part and as a whole
- Improves your focus
- Improves your breath control
- Boosts blood circulation
- Exercises new muscles that are not typically used in daily life
- Increases relaxation in daily life
One of the best and most unique benefits of practicing SUP yoga is the closeness and unity you feel with nature. Even if you decide to practice in bodies of water in urban areas, getting outside and away from the hustle of your daily life provides a level of peace unlike that given by any other yoga experience.
At Big Willie’s Action Sports, you can achieve just that and more. With us, you can rent a single SUP board for yourself or bring your whole crew along for a peaceful group exercise. You’ll even learn about the rich history of Nashville as you glide across the waterway. You don’t have to have any prior experience, as our experienced guides will teach you everything you need to know!

When you give it a try, doing yoga on a paddle board is not as hard as it looks and it even offers opportunities that a land-based practice doesn’t.
