SUP Yoga – June 10th

Join us for a day of SUP yoga at Lake Natomas.
Stand up paddleboard yoga (SUP yoga) combines the sport of stand-up paddleboarding with yoga postures, also known as asanas.

Yogi’s continually seek ways to grow both on and off the mat – This class is the perfect opportunity for those seeking a new experience to get take your practice beyond your mat for a change of scenery.

 

Whether you are paddling or just balancing on your board, SUPing is a full body low – impact workout that combines balance, strength, and endurance to provide an excellent core workout that engages the toes, legs, back, shoulders, arms and neck, all working together for all levels of yogi’s or individuals looking to explore yoga in a whole new light.

 

BENEFITS OF SUP YOGA
When it comes to SUP, it’s all about the muscles of the midsection – The strength needed to find balance on the board and generate both power and movement while paddling or turning stems from our 360 degree core muscles. From the deep transverse abdominals to the rectus abdominis and obliques, the integration of yoga postures helps to further challenge one’s balance and build both strength and flexibility throughout the entire body.

 

  • Refines technique on land.
  • Strengthens new muscles.
  • Relieves stress (fresh air, sounds of water & nature, gorgeous scenery)
  • Improves breathing techniques.
  • Increases flexibility.
  • Drastically improves balance.
  • Gets you outside.

We will spend the first portion of the class on land, practicing Sun Salutations and several other yoga postures designed to properly warm the body and prepare us for our practice out on the water. We’ll then paddle throughout the lake and pause at various points on our journey to practice an assortment of yoga postures. We will always provide easier and more challenging posture options, catering to each individual’s ability level and experiencing the connection of finding a deep ujjayi breath while exploring strength, balance and flexibility amidst the beauty of Folsom Lake.

 

We will conclude by settling into savasana to enjoy a yoga Nidra on the board, lying still under the warm sun with the sound of the water moving gently beneath us as we soak in all of the benefits of our physical practice.

 

This will be a blissful practice of complete relaxation and serenity to take with you into the rest of your day and weekend.

 

All levels are welcome.

Deeply Rooted – A Holy Yoga Practice, Thursdays 7:30-8:30 pm

Holy Yoga creates an environment to connect more intimately with God through a beautiful practice of breath and movement to contemporary and Christian music. There is often a misunderstanding that yoga is a religion, it is not. Yoga is a spiritual discipline, much like prayer, fasting and meditation. Yoga has the capacity to enhance our personal beliefs and faith.

Learn About Our Heat……FAR Infrared

solarlThe unique and natural heat that is only offered at Radiant Yoga actually is radiant. When exposed to the healing powers of FAR Infrared Heat as opposed to standard forced air used at other studios, your body is being warmed directly instead of being surrounded by artificially warmed air. This heat therapy works against creating dust and debris that can aggravate the common health problems of forced air. When your body undergoes exposure to FIR heat in our Radiant Yoga studio, the heat will penetrate within your body as far as 3 inches deep. This penetration results in increased blood circulation and the breakdown of toxin-filled large water molecules urging your body to rid itself of toxins and waste through perspiration and through the healing practice of yoga.
