+ What can i expect?
You can expect to be fully guided and supported by a certified qualified teacher of SUP and Yoga. You will be able to go at your own pace. Other than that, we encourage you to release all other expectations or anticipations and simply show up to enjoy yourself and this beautiful experience!
+ Is it cold? What do I wear?
It can be colder out on the water. I recommend wearing layers that way you can take something off if you get warm from the activity. The wind can be the most relevant factor but I will lead you through all these wonderful nuances (not obstacles) I wear what I feel comfortable doing yoga in. I wear a light jacket that can be put on or off depending upon the elements. If it is chilly I wear a comfortable wool hat to cover my ears. You can get wet just from paddling. So don’t wear anything you do not mind getting wet.
+ Is it difficult for beginners?
I love teaching beginners! It is such a pleasure to introduce someone to Standup Paddle Boarding (SUP) with or without the yoga. You can be a beginner for both SUP and Yoga. I am able to modify and go at your pace. This is my passion to introduce people to this great way of interacting with nature. I offer private lessons to those who might like a bit more attention as well as group courses you can sign up for. Each options allows you the opportunity to explore paddle technique and yoga on the board.
+ Where is it located?
All instruction is done from my private home studio on the River Thames in Sunbury on Thames, Surrey.
+ Will I fall in?
The chances are you will not fall in. But if you do you will need to be able to lift yourself back onto the board. I am able to assist as well. Make sure to bring a set of dry extra clothing to change into after the session. Also bring a towel along as well. It’s just more comfortable as we end the activity over a cuppa and biscuits.
+ What if I'm not a strong swimmer?
You need to feel comfortable in the water, being able to swim 50 meters. If you do not swim you can still participate by booking a private 1:1 session with me. I am also a master swimmer and love to get people to feel more confident on the water regardless of your current ability.
