The physical and mental health and overall wellbeing benefits of SUP, yoga and Pilates are well-documented, and as individuals we benefit in different ways each and every time we practice regardless of age, fitness level, flexibility or athletic background. Swapping your traditional studio for the great outdoors, offers a precious opportunity to reconnect with nature and our natural environment and enjoy all that it encompasses. Swapping your traditional yoga/pilates mat for a SUP, focuses both the mind and body as all of a sudden the simplest of poses becomes a challenge.
A SUP Yoga/Pilates session typically delivers a full strength and conditioning workout for both the mind and body, leaving your clients rejuvenated and energised and just a little bit blissed out! SUP sessions are a great addition to any yoga/Pilates teachers’ schedule. You will paddle away from this course equipped with the latest accurate information and teaching methods and with a better understanding of how SUP Yoga/Pilates can improve core stability, strength, balance and proprioception, and be a lot of fun!

Successful completion of the SUPta Yoga/Pilates Teacher training course will enable you to safely and confidently deliver sessions in protected waters no more than 50 metres from shore and/or in swimming pools. In addition to SUP Yoga/Pilates poses and their modifications, the course covers SUP safety and relevant business and marketing skills and practical workshops to refine and enhance your teaching delivery.

This 16 hour, 2 day workshop will equip you with the knowledge to deliver your own SUP Yoga/Pilates sessions in a variety of environments and give you the skills to select your location to ensure the wellbeing and safety of your clients, adapting sessions according to the weather conditions. Additional practical assessments and homework may be required post-workshop to achieve your certificate.

To achieve your SUP Yoga/Pilates Teacher certificate you will need to:

– Safely perform a series of SUP yoga/Pilates poses
– Deliver a SUP Yoga/Pilates lesson including demonstrations and modifications
– Complete 10hrs assisting SUP Yoga/Pilates instruction at a recognised SUP/watersports school
– Present a valid SUP Instructor certificate

It is also recommended, but not essential for this qualification, that you complete:
– First Aid course
– Water Safety Rescue course (covered in most SUP Instructor Level 1 courses)
