This training is for you if:
You are passionate about yoga, fitness and/or paddling.
You revere the water.
You can't think of anything better than to bring your passion and teachings into nature.
Immerse yourself in nature and harness the fluid power of water as you hone your paddle, yoga and teaching expertise. During our time together, you will be provided with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead a Flow Paddle Yoga™ class safely, clearly and with inspiration and love.
Yoga is defined as the "union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle." When it is practiced outdoors, your union with nature, humanity, the universe and yourself is truly felt. Add the element of water, and you learn to embody a fluid connection to yourself and all beings and energies on a soul level.
To embody this connection with water, nature, the divine all around and within us... and more importantly, to help others achieve this connection easily and joyfully... that is the vision behind Flow Paddle Yoga.
If this sounds like your kind of bliss, we can't wait to meet you and welcome you to the FPY fam!
