OUR STUDIO IS MADE OF WATER, YET THE EXPERIENCE YOU WILL HAVE HERE IS ANYTHING BUT WATERED DOWN OR SATURATED.
SoCal Paddle Yoga is the only floating studio in Southern California on a protected body of water, Lake Mission Viejo, making it a unique space with ideal conditions for practicing paddle yoga. We limit our classes our classes to six students and provide each one with premier Starboard paddle equipment specifically designed for yoga on the water to balance and stretch out their asanas. All levels are welcome as our classes are designed to meet any level of fitness from beginners to more experienced paddlers as well as first time yogis or regular practitioners. The only prerequisite is that you can swim. Our instructors have top level certification, and your enjoyment and safety are our top priority.
AT SOCAL PADDLE YOGA, IT'S NOT JUST A CLASS - IT'S A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OUTSIDE YOUR TYPICAL STUDIO TO RELEASE, RELAX, RESTORE, AND RENEW.
Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world because it is accessible to everyone with an extremely low barrier to entry, unlike surfing which is physically challenging and intimidating to most people. The learning curve for SUP is extremely short. Within minutes you will be having fun, escaping from the modern monkey mind as you are submersed in nature and the elements, and all the while benefiting from an incredible workout. SUP Yoga is the marrying of two mindful practices (SUP and Yoga). With a paddle board as a platform for yoga in the great outdoors, you will take your practice to a different level and your mind to a place of peace and the present moment.
WITH THE STABILITY OF THE PADDLE BOARD AND THE SUBTLE MOVEMENTS OF THE WATER BENEATH YOU, YOU CAN FEEL AS GROUNDED AND CONNECTED TO THE WATER AS YOU DO THE EARTH IN YOUR YOGA PRACTICE AND FITNESS EXERCISES.
SoCal Paddle Yoga is dedicated to providing all of our students with premier equipment for use in our classes and that why we've chosen Starboard SUP to outfit our studio. Our fleet of boards consists of the Starboard Astro Yoga Crossover. At 11’2”x32”, the Crossover is specifically designed and shaped for fitness and yoga on the water to give you the ultimate balance and stability for holding and transitioning through poses, along with a full length deck pad so you can stretch out your asanas with more gripping and less slipping.
AN OUTDOOR STUDIO A MILE LONG AND CLASSES LIMITED TO SIX STUDENTS - IT'S THE PERFECT PLACE TO PADDLE, PRACTICE AND PLAY!
SoCal Paddle Yoga is privileged to have the exclusive rights as the only floating studio on Lake Mission Viejo located in Orange County, California, with ideal conditions for yoga and fitness on water. Since the lake is an enclosed body of water, the water is usually very calm and it is much warmer than the open ocean water. The sun breaks earlier at the lake since we are inland from the beach, so most of the time it's never too cold to get out on the water in the morning. We also have a lot less obstacles and challenges at the lake without surfers, large boats, waves, wildlife, and kelp like we have in the ocean. Lake Mission Viejo provides a beautiful place to practice on the water in the SoCal sun.
