SAFETY IN OPEN WATER
It is very important that participants understand, this is a body of open water and so comes with many risk elements.
As you will be practicing Yoga movements, you will not be required to wear a buoyancy aid, but you are required to be a competant swimmer..at some point you are likely to have a dip!
Our qualified SUP Yoga teacher is also BCAB Safety and Rescue Trained so you are in good hands.
ABILITY AND AGE LIMITS
Classes are mixed ability (so from complete beginners to advanced)
These sessions are for 18 years and over. If you have someone who would like to accompany you who is under 18, please contact us to discuss.
SUP Yoga and pregnancy - due to the risk of falling off the board this session is not suitable for pregnant ladies.
The Ocean Walker Academy is a private venue and as such our gates will open up a max of 30mins prior to the class start time. We also close following the session.
You will be provided with a Stand Up Paddleboard and anchor for the class.
If you have your own equipment you can bring this - please ensure this has been cleaned/rinsed to avoid cross contamination.
You can wear regular work out or yoga clothing to SUP yoga, something you are comfortable in and don't mind getting wet. Moisture wicking fabrics work well as do rash vests, board shorts or swimwear. You may like to bring a warm layer to use during savasana. Most people like to go barefoot for the classes but water shoes/socks with grip on the bottom are another option.
Don't forget to bring a change of clothes and a towel as you are floating on water, there is always a chance of getting wet.
Please bring a waterproof kit bag - kit bags are left lakeside
In the event that we need to postpone/move a class due to adverse weather conditions, we will contact you as soon as we can to re-arrange.
