SUP Yoga Seattle (Seattle, WA)

Taking the first spot on our list is a company called SUP Yoga Seattle.

What makes them stand out?

They offer options in class type and even locations.

Classes range from a standard yoga flow, where you can expect to generate heat in your body. To a yin float, which is a slower, more relaxing routine. This is where participants will hold poses longer. And will spend a large amount of time lying on their backs.

They also offer a HIIT paddling course, which is a high intensity interval training circuit. These classes usually involve exercise on land. Think pushups, squats, burpees, etc. And finally a next level SUP yoga class focused on advanced poses such as balance and headstands.

Phew. That’s a lot of choices!

But wait, paddlers can also choose between two beautiful locations. Greenlake which is centered inside the city, and in Leschi which is a coast right off downtown Seattle.

These two wonderful spots are pristine places to experience SUP. And the surrounding city of Seattle as well.

Given their class choices and awesome locations, SUP Yoga Seattle makes its way onto our list of places to experience SUP yoga in Seattle.

Paddle Surfit (Kamloops, British Columbia)

Next for SUP yoga and fitness in Seattle is a place in British Columbia with our first shop called Paddle Surfit.

This particular spot is a bit farther north than the denoted city of Seattle. But we feel it was worth it to include them due to their first-class instructors. And excellent customer service.

Not to mention they offer Surfit and yoga classes for the eager paddler looking to increase their overall health and fitness.

Their classes consisting of a one-hour session. During which, participants will be guided through a warm-up on the board. As well as calisthenics and interval paddles. Followed finally by a relaxing stretch and yoga cool down centered on one of Heffley Lakes most spectacular bays.

The lake is located near the city of Kamloops, north Vancouver and features breathtaking scenery. It includes clear fresh water, bright blue skies, surrounded by an ocean of green pines trees. And an abundance of wildlife living among the shores.

Their amazing location is worth a trip if you find yourself close to the area.

Perfect Paddles recommends taking one of their combo exercise classes filled with intense paddling. And a yoga stretch cool down.

What’s SUP (Kenmore, WA)

Our next shop for SUP yoga and fitness in Seattle finds us landing at an outfitter called What’s SUP in Kenmore, Washington.

Brining it back closer to Seattle, What’s SUP is run and operated by Captain Steve and his wife Cecilia, who started their paddling life in Honolulu, Hawaii, where Steve took to being in the water at a very early age.

Starting when he was young, Steve would always find himself in, on, or around the water while living in Hawaii- surfing, paddling, or spending time in his 10’ rowboat, which he would often use as transportation to school.

After a move to the Pacific Northwest, he fell back into his passion on the water and opened What’s SUP with his wife.

Besides offering rentals and lessons, starting this year in 2020, Steve and Cecilia will begin implementing a What’s SUP Fitness course which will include SUP yoga and cardio paddles, where participants will be encouraged to push themselves sprinting through the water. Making for a fun and interesting way to get into great shape for the summer months ahead.

What’s SUP lands at number four on our list due to the great people behind the operation! And we at Perfect Paddles cannot way to see the results of their SUP Fitness classes rolling out this summer.

Yogatola (Everett, WA)

Last on our list for SUP yoga and fitness in Seattle is a yoga-centric outfitter called Yogatola.

An all-encompassing yoga studio as well as outdoor SUP yoga school, Yogatola was created with the obsessed yogi in mind.

You can also feel free to take a Vinyasa flow class or a core-centric Pilates class at the Everett Family YMCA with Alla Allen. She is the founder and teacher of Yogatola.

But, if the water is your thing (then we are certainly glad you are here) the best way to enjoy your obsession for yoga and the water is through a SUP yoga session with Alla, floating peacefully on the open waters near Everett.

Open to all levels, Alla will guide classes through a tailored flow, allowing the difficulty of balancing on the board to begin to feel normal as you kick up the intensity as time goes by.

Yogatola makes it onto our list due to Alla’s extensive yoga knowledge, ex6 perience teaching a wide range of classes, and her ability to adapt flows from inside a studio to out on the water.
