SUP Yoga Teacher Training

Join Anna Levesque, author of Yoga for Paddling, international paddling instructor and 500 RYT for exceptional teaching and leadership development. Few, if any SUP yoga teachers have the depth of experience that Anna has gathered over the last twenty plus years of professional paddling and dedicated yoga practice. Her teacher trainings provide American Canoe Association certification, the highest and most respected standards in the paddling industry. SUP yoga is more than simply taking your yoga class outside, there are important factors to think about when facilitating a class on the water. Factors that frankly, most yoga teachers aren’t aware of. Anna is committed to empowering you with ALL of the tools you need to lead effective, safe and successful SUP and SUP yoga classes.
