Getting the Balance Right!
What’s-up this summer? Well, SUP Yoga is the latest in yoga-meets-the-water, and is another relatively new sport to the Larnaka region that is going from strength to strength!
Using large and sturdy Stand Up Paddleboards to balance on, the sport offers the added challenge and dimension of a yoga class and has proven popular in the areas of Mazotos and Kiti, thanks to the fantastic sea and wind conditions.
The use of the paddleboard is a great way to build strength in your core muscles as well as improve balance, and anyone can benefit with or without prior yoga or SUP experience. If you would like to try SUP Yoga, there are sessions run by several kitsurfing schools, including KiteMed Kitesurfing School, located on the Softades - Kiti beach known as ‘The Spot’, Kahuna Surfhouse (also on Softades) and Windsurfcity Cyprus on McKenzie beach.
The classes are typically around 60-75 minutes long, incorporating a warm-up class on the beach, followed by a brief on SUP Yoga and a class out at sea that finishes with seated relaxation. Bliss!
