Stand Up Paddle and Meditation
The best way to meditate is while you are on the water, that’s why we combined the practice of meditation with stand up paddling.
Water in and of itself brings a meditative feeling. This class combines the synergy of the water, the rhythm of nature, and the power of meditation for a rejuvenating yet relaxing mind, body and spirit experience.
This class will assist you to find focus quicker, still your mind faster and feel your body playing all while enjoying the water. You may even get to see some of our enlightened friends, the dolphins, the manatees, the stingrays, the birds and the fish.
Some people say that you have to sit quietly in a room, under a tree, or even in a cave in order to meditate. We say that meditation can be performed anywhere.
In fact, according to the medical dictionary, meditation is “a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.”
Therefore, we do not have to be sitting still or being quiet to meditate. Anything that we enjoy doing and give our full attention to can be a form of meditation.
In this class you will learn and use mantras, practice breathwork and learn to paddle all at the same time, while experiencing what we like to call the “ananda factor” on the water. For more on the ananda factor, please, read the The Yin and Yang of Stand Up Paddle Boarding
