Will I get wet?
At NamaSUP Cape Cod we are committed to using the highest quality equipment to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. Our fleet of boards are wider and thicker than the average all around shaped paddle board, and the deck pad is like a floating yoga mat. They are designed for doing yoga specifically, and we believe they give the best SUP Yoga experience!
While we can't guarantee that you won't fall in, we are confident that the chance is minimized with clear instruction and quality equipment. Standing up on the board is optional, and it is possible to enjoy a SUP Yoga or Nightlight SUP from a comfortable sitting or kneeling position on the board! The important thing is to get outside of your house and your comfort zone and try new experiences. Coast guard approved Personal Flotation Devices (PFD) are available on every board.
What do I bring?
All you really need is yourself in bathing or athletic wear, and a sense of adventure!
You may want to bring some water, environmentally safe sunscreen, and bug repellent of your choice. The Instructor will have a dry bag for any keys, phones, or small personal items you don't want to leave in your car.
What do I wear?
Even though we don't anticipate clients falling in, classes are held in the water, and sometimes boat wake and other splashing may happen. We suggest you wear athletic or swimwear that you are okay with getting wet and will dry quickly.
When in doubt remember the ABC rule- anything but cotton!
I've never paddle boarded... can I still come?
Our Classes are designed for all-levels and no previous experience in yoga or SUP is required! NamaSUP Cape Cod is committed to offering a well-rounded experience on the water that is more than just a yoga class. All classes begin with an on-land instruction (SUP 101) to allow our clients to feel comfortable with basic strokes and their equipment before ever getting on the water.
I've never done yoga... can I still come?
If this was to be your first yoga class, you would not be alone! Our founder discovered SUP Yoga before ever doing yoga in a studio! And has been happy to have several students who had never been to a studio class as well. If you still have concerns about whether this is right for you, feel free to contact us with any other questions!
Where are you located?
NamaSUP Cape Cod is a completely mobile "floating yoga studio", which means you can find us all over Massachusetts! Our home base is Harwich, Mass, centrally located on Cape Cod where there are many beautiful freshwater lakes and ponds. We are working to add a regular rotation of classes around Cape Cod and surrounding areas this summer. Check back for scheduling updates as the season develops!
Is there an age limit?
For safety concerns, young children are not allowed, but ages 13 and up may attend with a parent or guardian. Water-loving yogis of all other ages are always welcome and encouraged to attend! If you want to bring a younger person under 13, please send us an email to check first. We will most likely say yes, but would like to know ahead of time!
