SUP & YOGA DAYS

Set at the beautiful beach of Belhaven these unique adventure Saturdays offer a perfect opportunity to combine a balancing and energising morning yoga practice with the fun of learning to paddle in the afternoon.

The yoga is run by experienced iyengar teacher Diane Christopherson who’ll provide a 90 minute practice designed to release tension and improve flexibility in the shoulders, spine and legs.  The class will end with a wonderful relaxation to leave you feeling calm and restored – ready for the day ahead.  Afterwards, there will be a selection of teas, coffee and delicious homemade cakes.

Classes take part in the Belhaven Surf Centre, all equipment is provided but you are welcome to bring your own mat if you prefer.

After the morning yoga, we can recommend either a packed lunch on the beach or a quick trip to a local cafe for lunch.

The afternoon paddleboarding will take place at Belhaven beach (conditions allowing) and we provide top quality Red Paddle inflatable boards and Alder wetsuits. The lesson will be run by one of Coast to Coasts experienced paddle board instructors.
