Yoga paddle boards are for our paddling yogis. While they might appear to be like any other SUP, there are yoga-specific features that these boards have. The board width might be slightly wider than an average SUP which lends to much-needed stability. You'll also want to a flat deck, good size deck pad with plenty of grip, and a soft board that's more comparable to a traditional yoga mat. They paddle just like any other SUP, but these features make them ideal for a rejuvenating yoga practice out on the water!

SUP Yoga Overview
SUP Yoga has exploded in popularity and for good reason. It's no surprise that folks interested in paddling are also drawn to yoga, or vice versa. Both are active, peaceful, and rejuvenating experiences and they both require extreme focus. Compared to solid ground, practicing yoga on a SUP requires additional focus and balance as you will consistently engage those core stabilizer muscles from start to finish. And don't be afraid to swim, that's what the water is there for!
