Stand up paddling yoga

Stand Up Paddleboard is an excellent stand-alone exercise providing a low impact workout and is very effective for building core strength. It also offers an opportunity to be in the great outdoors, surrounded by water and the elements and all of the positive energy this provides. The benefits of yoga are widely known and when combined with stand up paddle boarding it offers the perfect blend of spirit, body, and nature.

In a SUP yoga class, you will swap your mat for a board and a sweaty studio for glassy seas and a cool ocean breeze. You will perform asanas against a blissful ocean backdrop challenging your core and balance and enhancing your yoga practice ending in Savasana with nothing but the sound of the water lapping against your board to lull you into deep relaxation.

    "My wife had a 6 hr refresher course over 2 days with Katook from KiteWest. She loved the lessons and loved Katook's gentle nature and relaxed teaching techniques. I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Ben and his KiteWest team to all and any that pass Coro's beach 15 mins north of Geraldton."

    "I did the paddleboard yoga retreat with Ben in Bali and I had an amazing experience. Everything was perfect: the accommodations were beautiful, the food was great, Ben paid a lot of attention to all the logistics, and he's a really good instructor. He's also a really fun guy to hang around with. The beach where we had the classes are beautiful and there's plenty to do in town. Highly recommend for both groups and solo travelers!"

    "SUP Teacher Training with Kite west in Bali was so great experience! I had brilliant time, everything from first point to last was so well prepared, organized. Chantal & Ben are just Fantastic, I can't wait to pass more level & enjoy some workshop with them again! I hardly recommend them for any SUP, SUP YOGA and Kite surf activity. I have booked my next IKO training with Ben on next august and plan to visit them also in Geraldone on November. Thank you again guy, you are just awesome!"

    "Had such a blast doing SUP Yoga, the location at Sanur is perfect, plus it's only a 30 minutes car trip from Legian. The trainer Ben is fantastic! He ensures that any level can do SUP Yoga no matter if it's a mixed class. Looking forward to coming back and doing a retreat. It will be a real highlight of your trip!"

    "Hello potential SUP Yoga teachers! I completed my SUP YTT in May 2016, through Kitewest in Sanur Bali.The SUP YTT is an amazing course. It gave me the knowledge, information and confidence to start up my own company back home in Canada. The 2 day training was thorough, from set up to running a class I feel I got the best training to succeed. Ben not only goes through the asanas with you on the boards with proper modifications but there's tons of the business information that was extremely helpful for me back home. With all of the training I have been able to start my own company H2Flo. I feel confident in what I am doing and the service I am providing to customers. My classes are safe and my evaluations of locations are done properly thanks to my training. The location used in Sanur is excellent. if the conditions aren't perfect there are other options to ensure you get the best experience on the boards. Ben also passed on some extremely helpful contacts that helped me to start up my company with out all the normal costs associated with SUP businesses. After signing up you will have everything you need to successfully run a SUP yoga company. Enjoy your training!"

    "KiteWest is not only very professional, but efficient in all areas. They will respond to any and all of your questions within hours. Their staff of experienced teachers are supportive and caring, especially Ben. They focus on teaching foundation, breathing, alignment and most important having a good time. They are patient, extremely educated and proficient in safety. I have been studying yoga for years, but have never tried SUP YOGA. By the end of the week I was holding poses and doing inversions I thought I would never be able to do. When doing SUP YOGA, I found I was using muscles I didn't even know existed. Having found this new strength has really helped my practice in all areas, in and out of the studio. If you have never tried SUP YOGA, I highly suggest you contact this company and get signed up for one of their retreats. They teach to all levels, so if you are new to Yoga, don't worry they will work with you and your ability. The accommodations are clean, safe, quiet and comfortable. The food is healthy, clean and tastes amazing.I will be back to see them again very soon! Thank you KiteWest for an amazing week in Sanur, Bali. It was one of my trip highlights to Bali!"

    "I have recently completed my 200YTT Bali and just also finished my SUP yoga Teacher course in Sanur. Thanks to the trainers for this quality time on the water, very skilled and experienced instructors, working with a lovely Indonesian team at the Rip Curl school of Surf. Great set up and location, great customer service, lovely boat trip to the laguna... You made the group feel safe on the water, my training was above any expectation! I highly recommend the address to any yogis fan, SUP Yoga is just Magic and Fun. I will definitely come back to Sanur for my level 2 as soon as I get my hours. Thanks so much guys!"
