This place is designed to provide inspiration and support for women who believe in taking time to center themselves, mind, body and soul. For many, paddleboarding has become the ticket. We, the makers of Aqua-Bound™ SUP paddles, welcome you and encourage you to explore all that makes paddleboarding the fastest-growing sport on the planet.
Both stand-up paddling and life in general can cause back discomfort. Here are a few poses that stretch the back, open the hips, and strengthen the core, making your stand-up paddling experience more enjoyable. Feel free to try these on your board too!
Whether you are just starting the adventure of stand-up paddle boarding or you are an experienced paddler, the most important piece is to enjoy the ride. Be safe but not scared. If you are trying yoga poses, embrace the water if and when you fall in! Yoga, at it's core, is not about perfect poses; it's about accepting and loving self… without judgement. And laughter truly is the best medicine. So, enjoy today… and life. Have fun!
- Soothe your sinuses with sesame oil. Lie down, tilt your head back, and apply three to five drops of sesame oil into each of your nostrils.
- Keep your lungs clear with the full yogic breathe. Inhaling through the nose, deep into the belly then filling the lungs and chest. Exhale through the mouth, emptying the chest, belly, and finally drawing the belly button back towards the spine.
- Boost your immunity with tulsi (holy basil) tea.

Stand-Up paddle boarding in it's entirety - is an awesome experience. It's easy to learn, great exercise, involves nature, can be enjoyed with friends, kids, solo - or even try some yoga on the board.
The basic concept is to stand on a board, similar to a surf board, and glide across the water while using a long paddle to steer and propel.
While paddling, stay engaged through the core, keep knees slightly bent, shoulder width stance, and most importantly, relax and enjoy! The more relaxed and fluid, the easier it is to move and sway with the water.
