The only thing better then stand up paddling with your friends on a beautiful summer evening is doing yoga on your board at the same time! Join Tumalo Creek’s SUP Yoga Night: Your yoga/SUP hosts, Shanan Kelly and Sue Fox will lead an all-levels Vinyasa flow yoga session on the back lawn behind the shop and then take the group upstream to practice various yoga positions on the water. This special event is available August 17th from 5:30-8pm.
The first 30 minutes will include dry land stretching, connecting your breath, and opening the body. The focus will be on core strength, breathing and balance. The group will then paddle up river to a section of very slow moving current to experiment with balance and different postures. Part of the paddle session will also include light instruction for those looking to improve their paddling.
The class will cover basic paddle instruction and is for those with some SUP experience who are looking for a fun way to work out, enjoy the outdoors, and meet like-minded folks. Just bring yourself, an adventurous spirit and the desire to potentially get wet. All yoga abilities welcome. We’ll enjoy a beverage and socializing on the lawn to wrap up the night.
We do not take online reservations within 14 hours of the class. Please call the shop, as there are often spaces open last minute: 541-317-9407. We require a minimum class size, so periodically we need to reschedule due to low enrollment.
If you’re new to the sport, we encourage you to sign up for our Basic Skills Stand Up Paddleboarding offered right here at our store in the heart of Bend, just downstream from the Old Mill District.
If you are looking to purchase your own board and gear, you’ve come to the right place. Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe has the best selection of stand up paddleboards, paddles, gear and board shorts and rash guards in Central Oregon. Ask for our in-house SUP expert Sue Fox: she spent years stand up surfing in Hawaii when the sport was first popularized by Liard Hamilton.
