Q: What if I’ve never done yoga before? Can I still take the class?
A: 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 basic understanding of the postures.
Q: What if I’ve never been on a Stand Up Paddle Board?
A: 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.
Q: What should I wear?
A: 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.
Q: Should I bring anything?
A: Yourself, a towel, and perhaps water and a snack. After getting your yoga on in the sun for 90 minutes, you will be happy to have water and a snack waiting for you on the beach when you get back.
Q: Is the ocean water really cold?
A: Let’s get real, SoCal water is not the warmest in the world and that’s just the way it is. However, you will be spending little to no time in the water. When class begins, you will walk out into the water with your board about knee deep, then you will hop on and go. As far as falling in goes, on average about two people per class will fall in at some point. Maybe that will be you, maybe it won’t ! But if it is you, just hop back on your board and the sun will do it’s job to warm you right back up and you’ll be smiling and laughing at yourself in no time at all.
