This workshop is a two hour-on water Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga class. This class is open to all-levels regardless of yoga and/or paddling experience. We just ask that you are comfortable in- and around the water, even though many people end class as dry as they started it. To start the class, Anneliese will provide a mini on-land lesson to introduce people to the equipment and ensure that everyone feels comfortable using it. As a group, we will then paddle out to find a nice calm spot to hold class. The exact location depends on winds, weather and tides. Anneliese has been teaching this class for 6+ years so she knows the Gloucester harbor and Essex River like the back of her hand. Once there, will anchor up and Anneliese lead the group through the class. We'll end with some yogi play and a relaxing savasana as we are rocked gently to the water beneath us.
There is a $10 discount for people who bring their own equipment (Board, Paddle, PFD, Leash)
*These workshops are definitely all weather dependent. Cape Ann SUP checks the weather and winds about 10x per day but, as we all know, things can change quickly here on Cape Ann. If for whatever reason we need to cancel the class, you will receive a refund and we will try to inform you at least a full hour before the start of class (Please leave your email and phone number so that we can contact you, if need be).
**Parking at the Essex Marina - Please use 35 Dodge St. Essex Ma for your GPS. You can pull into the marina and then head right. You'll see our shipping container and tent with boards all the way to the right. Someone may be there to direct you to parking or you can park in the middle of the lot. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
***Parking at the Beauport Hotel - Technically, we're not suppose to use the valet and/or park on-premise at the Beauport. There is usually plenty of parking in St. Peter's lot, Rogers Street and along Fort Square.
