Paddle board yoga involves paddling out to a spot of calm water, moving into a particular yoga posture and holding the poses without falling off the paddle board! The idea is that by having to maintain your balance on the moving board while also in the yoga position, core muscles are strengthened, stability and flexibility are both improved and you get a moment to reconnect to the wonders of nature.
