SUP Yoga involves taking your Yoga practice onto the water using a Stand Up Paddle Board, adding new challenges and giving you a completely new experience, the board being used as an alternative yoga mat. Providing great benefits to the mind and body, this is easy to see when each of the aspects alone gives amazing benefits to health, and together they provide the perfect combination.
You will feel every muscle engage, keeping the body balanced and stable on the board, constantly adjusting, allowing for the water moving underneath you. It helps to improve focus and technique, heightening your awareness of your body and postures. You are required to let go of perfection and enjoy the very moment.
During your SUP Yoga practice there are modifications and variations. You are able to make your poses more challenging or more stable depending on how you feel. The board will move in response to your weight as you move between the poses, and the water state will move your board and challenge your balance
For the weekend you will be staying a 17th century house that has charm and character, with magnificent views of the lake and the rolling hills.
During your stay you will be provided with homemade, healthy and delicious meals – using locally sourced produce.
Wimbleball Lake is situated in the heart of Somerset. This peaceful valley was flooded in 1977 to create one of the most scenic reservoirs ever. Idyllic for walking, fishing, exploring nature trails and the pretty villages and escape from the pressures of life.
The site offers the perfect base for an array of activities and excursions. Whether it’s canoeing on the lake, mountain biking, gentle lakeside walks or just sitting back at the site relaxing there is something for everyone.
