Course Description: Surf and Turf Yoga is a combination class that will explore the practice of yoga both on land and on paddle boards floating in the pool. Students will spend part of their part in the dance studio learning poses, breathing and meditation techniques. Afterwards, the class will take their practice outside to the pool where they will use the paddle boards as their platform. The fun part is taking what seems to be a simple pose on land and playing with it on the water. Guaranteed to be a lot of fun!
