Frequently Asked Question #1:
1. WHY GET CERTIFIED TO TEACH STAND UP PADDLEBOARD (SUP) YOGA?
As you will learn quickly in the training, there are many reasons to obtain proper certification. When you teach SUP yoga, you are responsible for more than a yoga class. You are responsible for keeping your student safe on water and in their body on the board. Yoga looks quite different when you add the element of a board and water. Understanding the anatomy of the body and how it relates to practicing yoga on a board is crucial. Not to mention the logistics of securing a spot, obtaining proper permits, ensuring that you have the proper safety response protocol, etc. Also, if you want to teach SUP yoga for an outfitter, they will usually require SUP yoga certification from a known entity. Finally, it is such an amazing experience! Hard work, sunshine, nature, the Pacific Northwest, Oregon summer...it is the BEST!
