SUP YOGA Teacher Training Bali

brought to you by Shades of Yoga and KiteWest


Stand Up Paddleboard is an excellent stand-alone exercise providing a low impact workout and is very effective for building core strength. It also offers an opportunity to be in the great outdoors, surrounded by water and the elements and all of the positive energy this provides.

The benefits of yoga are widely known and when combined with stand up paddle boarding it offers the perfect blend of spirit, body and nature.

In a SUP Yoga class you swap your mat for a board and a sweaty studio for glassy seas and a cool ocean breeze. You perform Asanas against a blissful ocean backdrop challenging your core and balance and enhancing your yoga practice ending in Savasana with nothing but the sound of the water lapping against your board to lull you into deep relaxation.

This SUP Yoga teacher training will offer 20 hours Continuing education hours with the Yoga Alliance and will demonstrate your competence in handling a class of this nature to your future students. The course is open to graduates of a 200 Yoga Teacher Training and is formulated to provide the student with complete confidence in teaching a SUP yoga class.
