Experience Nantucket in an entirely different way. Fluid Flow classes will take you deep into the flow of island life, and deep into your heart.
These mixed-level floating yoga classes are appropriate for students interested in increasing their balance as well as physical and mental strength.
Sink spiritually into the back drop of the open ocean, and allow your yoga practice to be guided by the water flowing beneath you.
After a brief review of paddle technique, warm-up with a brisk paddle off the beach, then enjoy the safety and security anchoring down provides. The heart of your practice will include a flowing squence of yoga poses, core cultivation and loger held standing poses, which done on the gentle rocking surface of your board will be like no other yoga class you’ve ever taken.
Just like in our Float + Flow Basics class, Fluid Flow draws to a close with a sweet savasana (final relaxation) in which students are encouraged to lay down on their backs, float their hands in the water, and feel the water flow beneath them. Students will then enjoy a meditative paddle back to shore.
Sea and experience Nantucket in a way most people never will.
All necessary paddle boarding equipment is provided.
*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
