A Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) yoga class will be offered on four Sunday mornings this summer beginning on June 25 and ending on July 16 at the Highland Lake Town Beach in East Andover, sponsored by the Andover Institute, an arm of the Andover Community Association.
This class is appropriate for all levels of yoga experience – both beginners and those who have practiced for years – and no experience with SUP yoga is necessary. SUP yoga increases stability, flexibility and core strength, according to instructor Kristen Nesbitt, an experienced yoga teacher and Wilmot resident.
Classes will run from 8:30 to 9:30 AM; attendees must be over 16 and able to swim, are asked to arrive by 8:15, and to provide their own paddleboard. Participants will also need an anchor or may rent one for $5; anchor rental proceeds will be donated to the Andover Institute. The class is canceled if it's raining with thunder and lightning, or if the wind is higher than 5 knots, and a make-up session will be arranged.
Participants may attend any or all classes. The introductory class on June 25 is free, the remaining three-session series is $45, and individual sessions are $20 each. Pre-registration is required to insure sufficient anchors or if one wishes to join the class after the first session. To register and for more details, contact Kristen at www.backroadsyoga.com.
