Trailblaze Adventure of North Myrtle Beach is happy to announce we will be offering stand up paddle board yoga classes this summer.
SUPY (Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga) is a relatively new idea that joins the beauty of the outdoors with the calm and grounding nature of a yoga practices.
Some people that come to a SUPY class have practiced yoga before and may even be pretty good at it. Others approach SUPY as an opportunity to try something new because they love and appreciate the beauty of nature.
Whatever reason brings you to a Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga class, know that there are many benefits to a SUPY practice.
Adding yoga movement on a paddleboard will help strengthen your core, improve your balance, sharpen your focus and leave you feeling centered and calm. The paddle back after a SUPY class is often very quiet as the group reflects on the satisfaction and feeling of accomplishment. It’s a blissful, peaceful feeling as we feel closer to nature and to our own selves with a renewed sense of appreciation for ourselves.
In SUPY as in yoga, the idea is not that you have to be “good’ at something or the ‘best” at something. It’s the idea that you have a willingness to learn something new . To experience something and be open to the experience it provides. SUPY is a great way to gain physical strength while having fun.
SUPY is challenging. You will not be asked to do crazy poses, but instead we will explore what each of us is capable of trying. Floating along the water provides an incredible sense of peace.
We encourage you to come with an open mind, a sense of adventure and most importantly a sense of humor as even the most seasoned of yogis will fall into the water at one time or another.

A former elite level competitive gymnast, Felice accidentally and reluctantly stumbled into her first yoga class around the age of 40 and immediately fell in love with the practice. There was an instant desire to study yoga asana and philosophy to heal her body and soul. She has been teaching yoga for more than ten years now.
In 2009 she achieved her first Yoga Alliance certification in Hatha Yoga, followed by another in Anusara Yoga, Children’s’ Yoga, Baptiste Inspired and continues to further her knowledge and education each year.
Felice then took her love of yoga and combined it with her passion for the beauty of Myrtle Beach’s waterways. In 2019 she completed an extensive training program in Wilmington, North Carolina to prepare her for Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga (SUPY) instruction. This course provided her with the credentials to take groups out on the local waterways safely and provide instruction on the water as well as offering the beauty of a yoga practice on a paddle board. SUPY classes leave you with a feeling of weightlessness and peace while taking in the sights and sounds on the water.
Felice’s SUPY classes are not only fun they are designed to challenge you, strengthen you and introduce you to the beautiful resources of the South Carolina coast.
