What you'll do
Enjoy a unique adventure connecting with yourself & the island! This excursion takes you on a journey up the historic Wailua River into a serene location surrounded by mountains & lush forest, experiencing the mana & natural wildlife. After a 45min warm up paddle, we’ll anchor down to a breath-taking view & practice a challenging yet light-hearted hour of SUP Yoga. Your hard work is rewarded with a yummy guided meditation accompanied with sound healing. You will leave this experience with a blissful glow & can decide to either continue exploring Fern’s Grotto, Secret Falls, Kamokila Hawaiian Village or paddle back to the launch site with your teacher. This is an ALL LEVELS class, all bodies are welcome! Don't be intimidated - the SUP board serves as a valuable prop... Practicing yoga on a board encourages proper alignment & grounding through your hands & feet, building strength, stability & balance. As we slow our breath, we slow the mind - adopting stillness on the water that reminds us to flow with the elements of nature.
A L O H A ~ I'm Alexandria I've been practicing yoga as a healing part of my life for over 13 years. I am the Founder of Samsati Yoga : Holistic Lifestyle Experience here on Kauai, HI. I've combined the growth of my journey into wellness & thirst for adventure to make work & play one of the same. Moving to this island has only opened my eyes wider to the mindfulness of travel... hence why Samsati Yoga provides #YOGAofftheMAT & experiences that promote geotourism & conscious choices that enrich the individual, the community, & the island. Kauai has taught me to give back, leave a place better than you found it & live with the patience, humility & kindness of ALOHA. - Certified 500hr RYT - 200+hr Holistic Nutrition Specialist - 100+hr Life Coach - 5yrs SUP Yoga Experience - CPR/1st Aid Certified

Where you'll be
We will anchor the class up to the fork in the Wailua River, far away from traffic but minutes from Kamokila Hawaiian Village. If after class you'd like to grab refreshments & learn about Hawaiian history in a restored village, it's only $5 to roam 6 acres of peacock-populated sacred grounds. Class is located close to Fern's Grotto where you can dip into a swimming hole or take a lush hike into the rainforest to the 100ft Secret Falls

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Be prepared to paddle 45min up river, practice an hour of SUP yoga, wind down with meditation, & paddle against the wind back to the launch site. This is an active excursion! Pace & time yourself accordingly. I suggest packing lunch/snacks to refuel & enjoy a picnic on the water after class :]
