Stand Up Paddle Boarding, or SUP, is a low impact sport that strengthens the core, tones every muscle, and gets you on the water enjoying nature. Yoga improves your flexibility and balance, while restoring all bodily systems by creating physical, mental, and spiritual harmony. The health benefits and simplicity of both stand up paddle boarding and yoga make them the perfect match! At Paddle Into Fitness, you will find a unique way to get into shape, have fun, and maintain a healthy lifestyle!

Come enjoy the ancient practice of Yoga combined with Stand Up Paddle Boarding! These classes take your favorite yoga routines and put them on the water!

Develop better balance, coordination, and body strength by linking Ujjayi breathing to asanas (physical postures) through a series of sun salutations in this energizing Vinyasa class. The connection with movement and breath will ease the mind and allow you to experience a sense of peace and tranquility. The class culminates to blissful relaxation on your board, leaving you feeling happy and free!


Even one 30-minute cardio session can increase your smarts, boost productivity, lower stress levels, rev your energy, and elevate your mood….turning you into an unstoppable success machine! The benefits of exercise are endless, but getting yourself on the treadmill isn’t always easy. With SUP Fitness, we take the workout to the beach and use the board and paddle to create an innovative and fun way to get fit. Why go to the gym when you can burn calories in a beautiful environment while getting a tan?

What do I wear?
Wear the same clothes you would wear to a regular yoga or fitness class. If it’s warm and you want a tan, you can wear your bathing suit. If its cold, you can always rent a wetsuit. Dont forget your sunscreen!

Will I fall in?
The bay is very calm and flat and we use wide, stable boards that make SUP easy for beginners! There is a chance you could fall in, but you will not be in the water constantly.

Where do you meet?

Before starting the class, you must check in at OEX and sign a waiver. Please try and be at least 15 minutes early. In the summer and on weekends the parking can fill up very quickly and you may have to park and walk.

Can I walk in the day of the lesson and book?
We ask that you book your class as early in advance as possible, with at least 24 hours notice. It is very important for us to maintain a safe instructor to student ratio for water safety, so if we have a large group we need to bring in another instructor or lifeguard.

What kind of payment do you accept?
We accept checks, Discover, Visa , Mastercard, American Express, and cash.

Can I take a yoga or fitness class my first time paddling?
You must take a beginner lesson or have prior paddling experience before attempting SUP Fitness or SUP Yoga. We paddle in our classes (sprints in SUP fitness) and it is very important to learn the proper technique before developing poor habits, which may cause soreness or injury over time.

Are the fitness and yoga classes going to be really hard? Do I need to be an expert to perform the poses on the board?
Not at all! We offer modifications for everything, and it’s really about being outdoors and having fun!! We recommend trying Nautical Flow first, which moves at a more gentle pace.
