Two things I've been dabbling with came together this summer...
Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga, say hello to AcroYoga.
This was something I decided to do on a whim when a friend invited me to this class with SUP Yo! I love trying new things, and so I had to say yes. Say yes, people! For me, it feels so amazing just to TRY something new. The excitement that comes from traveling just a little bit outside your comfort zone is kind of exhilarating. The only thing more fun is when you try something new, and then you also find some success in it. Having an experienced base for my flying helped me to feel steady and comfortable, and he coached me through the process. Being able to nail a couple of these poses made me feel like a superhero for a day. And trust me, I'm just a normal human.
So my challenge to you? Say yes! Get out and try something new, whatever it is! If you've never tried Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga, or even just SUP without the yoga, get out there and try it! It's such a fun summer activity that gets you connected to nature while working your body and mind at the same time.
If you've never tried AcroYoga, check your local studios for options, or check Facebook and other social media sites for groups near you. Often you'll find these yogis just playing around at local parks. I have never met an AcroYogi that wasn't super friendly, open, accommodating, and willing to meet someone new - so give it a shot! What's the worst that can happen? You might just discover a new hobby...
