The J-Stroke - Stand Up Paddling

For those now standing up on the paddle board and getting the hang of the balance and motion involved in stand-up paddling, the J-stroke is a great addition! The J-stroke propels the board in a forward motion without having to switch the paddle from one side of the board to the other. Nice, right?

(If you are not at this point, don't fret. Check out our Intro to SUP article and you will be paddling in no time!)

Letting Go and Having Fun on the Water.

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!

5 Tips to Staying Well this Cold Season!

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Boost your immunity with tulsi (holy basil) tea.
