12 SUP yoga poses to strike on your board before fall

When it comes to yoga, balance is the name of the game. In recent years, stand-up paddleboards have become particularly popular, and it is easy to see why. It’s a great, mindful sport and can be a lot of fun just to paddle out into the ocean or lake or stream. But stand-up paddleboards are also good for something else: yoga.

Bic (yes, the same company that makes your pen) has some of the best paddleboards on the water, and we borrowed a couple to get us started with our practice. The paddleboard adds an extra challenge to the core and to your balance and lends a new challenge to familiar poses. With that in mind, here are 12 yoga poses even a beginner to paddleboarding (though not to yoga) might want to try. 

Rooting down through all four corners of the feet, bring the hands up overhead for a tiny backbend. This is a great place to get started and find your balance on the board. Root to rise, and rock around the feet to find a comfortable middle.
