Find your balance in the Pamlico Sound with a stand up paddleboard yoga class! No yoga or SUP experience needed, all levels welcome.
90 MINUTE CLASS:
We use large, fully padded paddleboards that we anchor in shallow, flat water (~3 ft. deep). Classes stay small (8 people max), so your instructor will always be close by.
On land, you’ll quickly learn the basics of the proper stance and paddling for SUP boards.
After a short paddle out, we’ll anchor our boards to play! Starting in seated positions, your instructor will show you poses modified to stay balanced on your board.
The last 30 minutes are reserved for whatever you want: trying new poses, headstands/backbends, more paddling, or just laying down to just soak up the sun and salty air!
Get your crew together and we’ll plan a class just for you, including pictures and videos of all the fun!
You choose the time – sunrise to sunset – and weather permitting, we’ll make it happen.
Your instructor will take group photos/videos during the flow, then get in the water to capture individual poses. Photos will be available immediately. Delivery options include: iPhone AirDrop/iMessage/iCloud Shared Album; Google Photos/Drive, Instagram DM, Facebook Messenger, SMS.
To book a private class, call 703-261-3513.
Minimum age of 13. Students should be able to swim.
Standard cancellation policy. Waivers required.
This adventure is weather dependent and requires less than 11 mph of wind.
Hi! I’m Beth 🙂 This is my fourth season working for KHK in Rodanthe, which holds a very special spot in my heart. I’ve been a beach lover since… I was born? Hatteras Island became my most favorite beach in the world after I learned how to kiteboard at KHKB in 2016, and I’ve kept coming back ever since.
How long have you been doing/teaching yoga?
I found yoga after taking dance classes from ages 6-20 as the best way to keep the flexibility I needed to keep dancing. My path to teaching started with one SUP yoga class on a trip to San Diego, CA in 2015. Helen Cloots of Floating Yoga School, led a super fun session and suggested I teach. In 2017, when she held a teacher training retreat in Caberete, DR (famous for its wind and kiting), it felt like fate!
What about SUP yoga?
It’s yoga on a paddleboard and so fun! Poses that have become easy on a mat in a studio, become a new challenge, and if indoor yoga doesn’t appeal to you it’s the perfect way to put your toes in the water 😉 and have a fun time on the water.
What do you consider yoga?
If you know how to inhale and exhale, on purpose, you can do yoga! If you can close your eyes and tell yourself, “keep breathing,” you’re good at yoga! I love to challenge myself in all kinds of ways, and the challenge of yoga is accepting and taking just what you need from it and nothing else. As long as you don’t think you’re bad at yoga, you’re good at yoga -some days this is easy and others it’s harder than you’d think!
On land, it’s a tie between Triangle and Mountain pose. On the board, headstand or Camel pose. Officially: whatever pose my body/mind needs in the moment
I seem to get a lot of nicknames wherever I go. I have 3 older brothers. I love the color purple, alot. I’ve won the Flying-Chicken Award at the OBX Brewtag four times. I’m gonna win it again this year.
