How to Become a SUP Yoga Instructor and Start Your Own Stand-Up Paddleboard Business

Humans have long enjoyed the soothing and transformational properties of water. Being around bodies of water increases blood flow to the brain and heart, inducing a wonderful feeling of relaxation. When we have feelings of stress in our everyday lives, we take warm baths or long showers to clear our minds and achieve a sense of clarity. When we look at its boundless benefits, it is no surprise that teaching yoga on the water is soaring in popularity.


Water is the elixir and source of life, and yoga is a mind-body practice that creates calmness. The two together? An incredible experience that immerses you in serenity. We can store a lot of emotional energy in the body, and yoga is great for letting go of built-up tension. One of the benefits of Standup Paddleboard Yoga is that it allows you to release those negative feelings into a vast span of water and watch as it ripples away leaving you calm and content.

At Standup Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga Center, we offer the perfect add-on to your yoga teacher certification. Located in Northeast Florida and Asheville, NC, we are the heart of SUP yoga. Learning to be a SUP yoga instructor requires time and resources but is an investment that could change your life. You already know and love the restorative properties of practicing and teaching yoga, so why not take it to water? A career as a Standup Paddleboard yoga instructor provides unique opportunities for personal and professional development that you would be hard pushed to find anywhere else.

Our course is specially designed to guide you on your own journey to an exciting, meaningful career transition. It has everything you need to become an empowered and enlightened Standup Paddleboard yoga teacher. Our experts will walk you through the perfect mindset and balance, to building paddle techniques and even coaching you on the aspects of creating your own business. To find out exactly what the SUP Yoga Center Standup Paddleboard Yoga Teacher Training could do for you, join us below.

Join a community of SUP yoga teachers
Reap the rewards of Mother Nature
Build your own successful SUP Yoga business

1. Widen Your Knowledge of the Yoga Practice

You already know and love the benefits of traditional yoga, so Standup Paddleboard Yoga is the perfect way to level up your training. It is an invigorating twist on the exercise that provides a full-body workout with a difference! You may be doubting that you can master the necessary skills, but is a truth universally acknowledged that practice makes perfect…

As a trained land yoga teacher, you will take to Standup Paddleboard yoga like a duck to water! The two are not as different as you might think, as they both require perfect balance and patience. Think of SUP Yoga as the next step in learning, as it refines your technique, is more calming, and really puts your body to work, all while being brilliantly fun!

Standup Paddleboard yoga may feel difficult at first, but our team of pro teachers will be with you every step of the way. The benefits of practicing outside of a studio are incredible to behold. Such a dramatic change of scenery to beautiful waters is rejuvenating for body and soul, and because extra focus is required you will naturally be more mindful. Being so close to water provides a rush of adrenaline that keeps you focused and motivated throughout the workout. What better way to learn the life lesson that if you fall, climb back on your board and try again!


Our signature Standup Paddleboard Yoga sequences are designed with you in mind, to ensure you feel stable while at one with the water. You will feel a sense of freedom as you take to the water. In order to feel grounded, you will anchor with your fellow students’ boards as we begin our flow.

In traditional yoga, setting an intention brings your attention and awareness to a virtue you wish to cultivate both on and off the mat. These virtues might be patience, gratitude, being present in the moment, love, or anything else you want to focus on. In Standup Paddleboard Yoga, you create an affinity with the water around you, allowing for much more meaningful intentions.

The obstacle of learning to balance on a paddleboard brings with it a deeper appreciation for yoga. As a student of the ancient practice, it is easy to become complacent and think that once you have mastered a repertoire of poses, you have learnt everything there is to know. No one ever “completes” yoga; it is an ongoing connection between mind and body. Practicing SUP yoga will strengthen your love for the exercise as it introduces new scents and sounds for an amazing sensory experience.

You will also find yourself engaging even more muscles for

a challenging full-body workout!

2. Share The Gift Of Yoga With The World

You probably know that being in nature makes you feel better emotionally and contributes to your physical wellbeing. Its effects are in fact so much more robust than this. Feeling safe in nature is an antidote for stress: it can lower blood pressure and stress hormone levels, reduce anxiety, increase self-esteem, and improve mood.

There is something so special about being in a flow on the water, away from the distractions of daily life. With no demands on your time, only the ask that you relax your mind and body, Standup Paddleboard yoga will take you to a unique state of bliss. SUP yoga requires you to focus on the most important thing in your life: yourself. Any glancing round to check your form against others and you will find your board getting a little wobbly! You may be so used to comparing yourself to others that trying not to sounds terrifying but letting go will get you out of autopilot and build your self-belief.

It is a magical experience that opens your heart to this planet’s endless opportunities. Embracing a peaceful flow while dolphins, turtles, and other sea life swim by is like living inside a Disney film!
