*** Please, note that we strongly recommend you register for the SUP GUIDE LEVEL-1 TRAINING held on the Thursday just before the SUP & Yoga Therapy starts. The SUP Guide Level-1 training teaches you how to guide a trip, safety and rescue, board construction and the business of SUP. This training is not about learning to race or just emphasizing different paddling techniques that other certifications may cover, this is about the knowledge you need to guide SUP trips safely. ***

Brought to you by 500-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainers, Certified Yoga Therapists, Professional SUP Instructor Association (PSIA) Lead Instructors, World Paddle Association (WPA), American Canoe Association (ACA) Certified Instructors, American Council on Exercise (ACE) Continuing Education Specialists and International Association of Yoga Therapists Charter School.

The world’s oldest tradition combined with the latest in fitness brings you “Stand Up Paddle & Yoga Therapy“.

stand up paddle & yoga therapy

Spend 3 amazing days in sunny St. Petersburg, FL playing and learning on the beautiful waterways while enjoying the view with dolphins and manatees.

On day 1 you will learn the poses that work best on the paddle board. You will also be introduced to the therapeutic aspect of stand up paddling.

On day 2 you will learn how to design fun and effective series that will challenge any level from “beginner” to “advanced”. We will also go further into the yoga therapy aspect of stand up paddling.

On day 3 we will explore how to incorporate meditation, mantras and breath-work into a stand up paddle session.

As we continue to grow with the SUP & Yoga industry, and since we have chosen not to be sponsored by a particular brand, we were able to add two new great features to our SUP & Yoga Therapy Teacher Training:

  • Our students are now able to test drive numerous boards from the leading companies in the SUP & Yoga industry in order to make the best choice for their business.
  • Our students are now able to purchase boards and gear at wholesale and/or just above wholesale in order to get their business established as soon as possible and at the best price.


  • Must be able to swim.
  • Must understand and be able to properly use stand up paddle safety gear. The stand up paddling prerequisite can be met with Thursday’s “Stand Up Paddle Guide” Level-1 Training.
  • At least 1 year of a consistent yoga practice and/or a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification and/or a Personal Trainer Certification.

All paddle boards and gear will be supplied.
