Learning to Stand Up Paddle

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.

Letting the Soul Dance.

As a society based largely around work, titles, status, likes and incredibly hectic schedules - it is really easy to forget the freedom of living. Getting out there and letting the soul dance and feel and experience… without a time restraint.

Last week I battled myself, convincing myself I was too busy to get out on the water. I stared longingly at the water every night, exhausted from the day, telling myself - maybe tomorrow.

Yoga, a Proactive Solution to Overall Body Health

When it comes to taking care of our bodies, the first thought that comes to my mind is yoga. In a world of reactionary solutions, yoga can be both a proactive and reactive solution. As a society, we tend to eat foods that we know are not good for us and behave in ways that we know can hurt us, all with the attitude that we can just go to the doctor and have someone fix us. If a joint goes out, we replace it with plastic - instead of strengthening the weak muscles that compromised the joint in the first place.

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding with the Family

As much as I love cruising across the water surrounded by nature and enjoying a moment alone, I equally enjoy hanging out with my kiddos and listening to them discover this beautiful world… and giggle. So, if you haven't tried it, I highly recommend paddle boarding with the family. Be sure everyone has a life jacket. Maybe your family is older and can venture out on their own board, just as fun, stand-up paddle boarding is a great way to hang out, exercise, and explore with friends and family of all ages - or maybe you can catch a ride with them! :)
