Frequently Asked Questions
It just depends on the time of year. During the Summer, the water gets very warm but during the Fall and Winter it will of course get cooler. The good news is, you will be spending little to no time in the water. When class begins, you will walk out about knee deep, then you will hop on your board and go. As far as falling in goes, it happens a lot less than you think-sometimes no one falls in at all. But if you do, just hop back on your board and let the sun do it’s job to warm you up. Splashing occasionally is all part of the fun, it teaches us to let go and not take ourselves too seriously.
All the equipment needed for class is provided. However, it doesn’t hurt to bring a towel and perhaps a change of clothes just in case. Whether you fall in or not, your clothes will get a little damp either way.
I recommend lightweight Yoga attire. Particularly shorts or cropped pants. In the Summer, some people chose to wear a swimsuit and that’s fine too! Wear what you feel comfortable in. However, on colder days, bring something long sleeved. If you get warm while you’re out on the board, there are bungees on the front of the board where you can fasten your top (and any other items) safely.
Still come! The first 30 minutes of class provide you with thorough paddle instruction and the opportunity to paddle around the harbor. This gives you the chance to get comfortable on your board before the Yoga portion of class begins.
Yes, it is still possible for you to take the class, however, I do recommend you taking at least one basic yoga class prior just to have a general understanding of the postures.
