What is Ocean Yoga™?
Ocean Yoga™ utilizes a board that rests on adjustable balance pods, allowing it to mimic the instability of water and wave movements. This instability exposes your weaknesses that are often overlooked during traditional yoga classes and forces your mind and body to work together to discover stability while dynamically moving from one pose to the next. This unique experience engages your mind and body, builds lean muscle and intensifies calorie burn.
Ocean Yoga™ I
Ocean Yoga™ I combines traditional yoga poses while balancing on the board resulting in a dynamic, full-body stability training. The board's instability allows you to learn balanced technique while synchronizing your mind and body to work as one efficient unit. You don't need previous yoga experience, just the board and an open mind. Hop on and enjoy the ride to a leaner, more focused you.
Ocean Yoga™ II
Take your training to the edge and wash away your weaknesses with wave-inspired workouts that challenge your mind and body. In addition to the board, Ocean Yoga™ II, combines the use of a weighted paddle (5 lbs) to provide an added total-body challenge in various standing poses that will increase strength, balance, coordination, and improve flexibility and mental focus.
Prerequisite: Participants must have attended at least 80% of the Ocean Yoga™ I in order to enroll in this course.
