Soul Yoga Cork and Funky Town Rocks have teamed up to offer a unique yoga class on the water. Once the winds and tides are in sync, Yoga teacher Val and the paddleboard rental company will announce a date for their fun fitness class.
The one-hour class begins with a grounding meditation and a gentle warm-up. Then you slowly start to get used to balancing and moving around the board by learning five different yoga poses.
From then on, the challenge is to move from one pose to the next as quickly as possible.
Expect lots of falling in the water, friendly competition and laughs. Towards the end of the session, you will work with a few optional challenging poses, such as headstand and crow pose.
The class finishes with a Shavasana meditation; floating in bliss.
Soul Yoga describes this event as something different to brighten up your week. The water and winds decide when it all takes place, so follow Soul Yoga Cork for updates and further details.
A 60-minute Paddle Board Yoga Class is €25 and includes paddleboard rental. The fee does not include wetsuit rental so it’s advised to bring your own, unless you can handle the October waters in your swimsuit.
