Go on, Stretch Yourself with SUP Yoga at Belfast Maritime Festival!
The term ‘blue health’ is growing in popularity. It means the benefits derived from marine environments. SUP Yoga is part of this movement and a novel outdoor activity. It can be a great way to aid relaxation.
Yoga has been proven as beneficial to health and well-being for people of all ages and abilities. Likewise, Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) is an easy introduction to water-sports. The paddle board provides a stable and easy-to-manoeuvre craft for beginners.
Far and Wild have been leading SUP Tours since 2016. Building on a great experience at Foyle Maritime Festival in 2018, we can’t wait to introduce SUP Yoga to Belfast Maritime Festival in 2019! We are streeetching the boundaries to use the wonderful river environment safely for positive health.
Our SUP Yoga sessions will a bite-size introduction to SUP and yoga on the River Lagan.
Each taster session lasts 45 mins from top to tail (approx 30mins on the water). Your session will include a simple introduction to stand up paddle boarding, then a series of easy-to-learn Yoga postures. You will be under the direction of our qualified board instructor and our Yoga guru.
Your session will introduce you to how to safely paddle and manoeuvre a Stand Up Paddle Board, using sheltered water around Donegall Quay. When you have got used to your board, we will move on to putting some moves together on the Board itself!
This session is suitable for adults or older children (>16yrs) accompanied on the water by a parent or guardian. The activity is offered with the support of the Belfast City Council to develop the potential of maritime space in the council area.
