SUP Yoga



Train with SYC! I am eternally grateful for the education AND experience I received from Jess and SUP Yoga Center. The manual is a well-rounded, excellent resource. The hands-on and on-water training was fun, thorough and comprehensive. I feel comfortable and confident now that I can provide our clients with a truly safe and enjoyable experience. I know these seem like the most important aspects, but they weren't. What was truly remarkable about this training were the daily "above and beyond" aspects - from the correspondence leading up to and the welcoming accommodations at training to coffee breaks and healthy meals at local eateries, Jess Amendola goes above and beyond all reasonable responsibilities as an owner. Environmental education and beach cleanups are forever engrained in me, and or that I am forever grateful. If you haven't guessed, I highly recommend this training or just taking a class with SUP Yoga Center! (I am a real person leaving a real review.)

Yoga on SUP



It comes very easily to say that Jess and SUP Yoga Center far exceeded my expectations when I embarked on the journey of SUP Yoga certification. Jess is truly an expert in the industry and provides a wealth of knowledge. She is a genuine soul that has an extraordinary passion for displaying kindness and compassion to the planet and the people she shares it with. My training was not only a course, but rather an experience that allowed me to truly embrace what it means to have a love and affinity for both my yoga practice and my passion ( and longing to return) for the ocean. I have a heart filled with gratitude for the journey that I took to St.Agustine to join SUP Yoga Center on a weekend full of wonderful training and experiences that will never be forgotten. I look forward to being able to share this addition in my yoga practice with lots of beautiful souls that are wanting to take their practice on the water. Thank you so much to SUP Yoga Center for the extraordinary training, the wonderful sights, delicious eats and all of the wonderful people that I was fortunate enough to meet along the way. I am feeling incredibly blessed for this beautiful adventure!!



I can’t say enough great things about SUP Yoga Center! Jess has so much knowledge to share about SUP yoga, paddle boarding, & truly is passionate about what she does. Thank you Jess for an unforgettable training. I learned much more than I ever expected! I am now running a very successful floating yoga studio & continuing to share this practice on water.

SUP Aerial View


I took the Sup Yoga teacher training and it was life-changing. I originally signed up to take it in order to deepen my yoga practice on the water but after taking the class I truly feel I would love to teach. I have been paddleboarding for about three years and doing yoga practice on my board for about two and I love it, but this course made me love it more. EVERYTHING was covered, safety, paddle and paddle equipment, Yoga poses and modifications as well as the actual business of running your own floating yoga studio. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning more or truly wants their own floating studio.

This was an awesome training; a premium experience worth the tuition expenses - I would have paid more!

Group SUP


12/10! I gained so much from this experience and I look forward to getting out on the water again!

Peaceful Ripple


Awesome! Fully inclusive/covered everything/great leader! One of a kind and hard to beat.

Shoulder Stand on SUP


I absolutely recommend Jess and the SUP Yoga Center for training and classes. Jess is a knowledgable, fun, and accessible instructor. She teaches with the individual in mind and can take someone from anxious to confident in just one class. Thank you Jess!
