Stand Up Paddleboard Fitness

Step out of the gym and onto a board at James Island County Park!


SUP fitness builds on the foundation of stand up paddleboarding and core stability by adding elements of cardio, balance, strength, and flexibility.

Gentle yoSUP


Stand-up paddleboarding meets yoga on the lake, a beginner-friendly setting with no current or tide. Calm water allows participants to focus on poses to stretch and strengthen the torso, hips, and legs while quieting the mind and creating a state of ease through breath and relaxation. Open to all levels.

Power yoSUP


Prepare to work up a sweat in this fitness-based approach to yoga on the paddle board. Participants flow from one pose to another using breath as an anchor to increase strength, flexibility, and calorie burn. Yoga and paddleboarding experience preferred.
