March 18th-22nd, 2015 we are co-leading our inaugural “Just Add Water” SUP, Yoga and Surf Retreat in Puerto Rico. Nantucket SUP Yoga is beyond thrilled to be teaming up with Jessica Bellofatto of Kama Deva Yoga & Paddle Diva in East Hampton to offer you a truly special experience. Join us for daily yoga on the deck of our private home with incredible ocean views, stand up paddleboarding (SUP) lessons & tours emphasizing stroke technique to increase speed and efficiency, SUP YOGA on the water, daily runs or walks, delicious, organic, locally sourced meals prepared by an amazing local chef, massages, relaxation, and more!
Both Jessica and I are long time traditional yoga teachers who have both taken our yoga practice beyond the conventional studio and onto the water. We have over 30 year combined studio yoga experience and share a passion for paddling, SUP racing and meditating on the water. Jessica, who is a Boga Yoga Ambassador, has been one of the pioneers in the now booming field of SUP Yoga, and certified me to teach SUP Yoga last spring. Our similarities are striking, and bound to produce some fantastic mutually enhancing energy – while Jess and I both teach at traditional yoga at festivals and lead workshops and retreats around the world, we are also both former dancers, mothers, SUP racers, and life long yoginis, yet we each bring our own style and unique flavor to the mat and the board. If you are willing to get wet, we can guarantee you a fabulous time.
All of our SUP yoga classes are designed to help students ﬁnd the peace and tranquility they’ve come to expect from a traditional yoga studio class, but will challenge them to navigating the dynamic and constantly changing environment of the open ocean. The ﬂuidity of a SUP Yoga practice can help students ﬁnd a deeper connection to themselves as well as cultivating a reverence for their natural surroundings. With stunning tropical Rincon as the backdrop, students will feel strongly connected to the land and sea.
