This summer two SUP yoga events were hosted in Tacoma. We had beautiful sunny days to enjoy the water and the fantastic views of Commencement Bay. In both classes some women tried paddle boarding and/or yoga for the first time. Everyone had positive and enthusiastic attitudes, in typical SheJumps fashion! This resulted in fun classes and each of us challenging ourselves.
The classes provided a mix of challenge and relaxation. Our dedicated instructor, Lindsay Lambert, aka the Paddling Yogini, reminded us to receive the energy from the water (yes, waves and all) with our inhalations and to release any thoughts or distress on our exhalations. Lindsay teaches classes year round, and you might try an indoor yoga or TRX class sometime. Those of us needing to rent paddle boards were outfitted by Dolan Board Sports.
Commencement Bay is a beautiful place to explore. I hope you can join us next summer for SUP yoga or for paddle boarding.
