In 1999 Tim wanted to add even more challenge for his personal training clients. Since the studio was located next to the water he decided to add his love of kayaking along with his love of yoga. He took a few clients out kayaking to a small island in the bay behind the studio. The clients loved it – they got exercise on the way out and yoga on the island. Hence KaYoga™ was born (Tim phrased the term). To make things more intense, he added boot camp training on the island (hence the term Kayakercise™).
Kayak + Yoga – You will kayak or SUP to an island to practice yoga on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. On the way to the island you may encounter dolphins, birds and other wildlife.

All KaYoga trips leave from Tierre Verde (directions below).
