What do you need to do yoga on a SUP?
To practice SUP Yoga you must first have a sturdy paddle board. An inflatable board with a thickness of 15 cm is ideal. This is because an inflatable board is (almost) always more stable than a hard board. The thicker the board, the more solid and stable it will be. An inflatable board with a reasonable thickness is therefore perfect for the combination of supping with yoga.
In addition to needing a suitable board, it is important that you also have a good yoga technique.
