SUP YOGA TEACHER 
CONVERSION

SUP Yoga is an exciting addition to a yoga teacher's portfolio of offerings. It's a unique and wholesome experience that appeals to many outdoor enthusiasts and provides a mindful, fun, alternative and accessible path to the yogic experience, fostering self-belief and humble confidence. 


The course provides an opportunity for yoga teachers to fine tune their SUP skills, learn the health & safety considerations of providing both inshore and coastal classes,  basic meteorology, tidal heights and streams, anchoring systems and peer to peer review of your teaching on the water. 

We are the longest established SUP yoga provider in the UK and have been offering teacher training since 2013. This certificate of completion is required by the Yoga Alliance UK for insurance purposes to allow you to begin to teach classes.

THE MINDFUL ATHLETE
A YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

The mental and physical health of an athlete are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. 


We teach you how to teach athletes how to coordinate breathing and physical movement, improve focus and concentration, and help participants condition both their body and their mind.

Tailoring asana to the needs and lexicon of the athlete requires care. Employing the techniques of mindfulness meditation in a structured method will see measurable improvements to the biology of their belief and their capacity to succeed in their given field.
