EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS!
STAND UP PADDLEBOARD YOGA 3 Day Training Retreat
OPEN TO EVERYONE (Knowledge of Yoga required)
Kos Island, Greece, 2024
May 11, 12 & 13, 2024
September 14, 15 & 16 2024
Join me for a 3 day SUP YOGA training retreat on the beautiful Greek Island of Kos, and learn everything there is to know about this amazing practice that connects you to nature, to others, and to yourself.
This course is open to everyone! You will need to have a basic understanding of yoga asanas (see pre-requisites). You can join with an aim to teach in the future *, or simply as a fun 3 day retreat to get away from it all and do something wonderful for yourself.
It will be a fun 3 days packed with information, tips and skills from my many years of teaching Yoga and SUP Yoga.
It's time to expand your horizons and offer something new and amazing to yourself, your family and friends, and to your existing clients if you are already a yoga teacher! SUP Yoga is taking the world by storm as more and more people are drawn to being connected to nature, water, and to the feeling of peace and expansion that it brings.
Don't miss this opportunity to increase your skills and spread more yoga joy!
Once you complete this course you will become fully confident with SUP Yoga, and be able to teach safely and effectively on the ocean, rivers, lakes, and even swimming pools*. The options and opportunities are endless, from teaching overseas, running retreats, private sessions, partner SUP yoga, children parties, hen events ... the list goes on!
If you do not wish to teach, this is still a perfect way to fast-track your yoga practice, and to get the most out of your own SUP board if you have one. If you don´t have a board already, I am pretty sure that you will want to treat yourself by the end of the 3 days!
WHERE COULD IT TAKE YOU?
Experience of practicing Yoga.
Able to swim a minimum of 50 meters.
Stand Up Paddle experience is a bonus but not essential, as we will teach you the basics required.
Teaching yoga on a SUP board is a completely different experience to a land yoga class, so please do not assume that because you know yoga, you can automatically teach SUP yoga (this is a mistake I have often seen). This course will give you all of the knowledge and skills you need to be successful.
YOU WILL LEARN AND ENJOY THE FOLLOWING DURING THE COURSE:
- Developing and delivering fantastic SUP yoga classes.
- Partner SUP Yoga.
- Fun SUP Yoga for children.
- Modifying asanas for the stand-up paddleboard.
- Safety - for yourself and students. Rescue technique.
- Anchoring and positioning students.
- Basic stand-up paddleboard skills (riding, turning, stopping)
- Running a SUP Yoga business, offering and marketing your services.
and much more!

LOCATION AND GETTING THERE
The course will take place at Kefalos Beach, in Kefalos, Kos. Kefalos is a very short drive from Kos airport (15 minutes), and Kos Island is easily reachable with direct charter flights from many countries from April until October. You can also fly to Kos via Athens, which is a short 45 minute flight. Ferries run regularly to Kos from the port of Piraeus in Athens and from many other Greek Islands. Why not make a holiday of it and do a bit of island hopping? Kefalos is a quiet resort with a large sandy bay and stunning views of Kaastri Island and its surrounds. This is the ideal place for our SUP Yoga training event, as the sea is flat no matter how strong the wind, the water is crystal clear and non-tidal, and the views and energy are really very special.
ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD
Please see the map for our training location HERE I would recommend that you select accommodation near to the training area if you do not have transport. There is plenty of accommodation, from simple apartments to family-run hotels, a few 4/5 star hotels, and of course Air BNB's.
There are many places to eat within easy walking distance, from family-run tavernas to trendy restaurants, offering a fantastic range of traditional Greek and international cuisine.
I am a fully qualified SUP Yoga, Yoga, Yin Yoga, Arial Yoga teacher, and Mindful Yoga Therapist. I am a fully accredited ISYA (International SUP Yoga Academy) SUP Yoga Teacher Trainer on a mission to introduce as many individuals as possible to this beautiful yoga discipline. I have been teaching SUP Yoga classes for more than 10 years, and I never tire of the joy and laughter it brings to yogis, as well as to people who have never even tried yoga or been on a SUP board before.
My mission has always been to share the incredible power of yoga with as many humans as I possibly can during my lifetime. SUP yoga has given me a way to reach more people and to break down some pre-conceived ideas about the practice of yoga. Being out in nature, on the water, stretching, and having fun is really indescribable. I promise you that there is nothing like it. You must experience it for yourself, and I am very confident that once you have, you will, like me, be driven to share it around! You can read more of my story HERE
