A meditation practitioner since 1998, Allison Martin-Attix became a certified meditation coach in 2005. While we tend to spend time training our bodies, we spend little time training our minds. Living a balanced life includes taking time in nature and learning to focus inwardly. This combined SUP meditation class offers all of that and more!
OFFERED EVERY 2ND & 4TH THURSDAY of the month.

we have great EQUIPMENT
In the world of SUP, you generally get what you pay for, which is why we invest in top-notch equipment. Not only will you feel safe, stable and agile on our HALA, RED, SOL and Jimmy Lewis boards, you'll appreciate our paddles made by expert craftspeople with lightweight virtually indestructible materials. In our classes, students learn how to identify quality equipment, so that they can make good future investments...or just keep using ours.
we give back
LYFSUP is dedicated to protecting our earth. We organize beach clean-ups and donate annually to causes that protect our water & natural environment.
Standup paddleboarding has been said to be the fastest growing water sport in the world for good reason. Learning to SUP will improve balance, focus, coordination and body strength in a beautiful setting. It’s versatile; it can be a serene and peaceful form of gentle exercise or more physically challenging depending on your purpose and mood. But the main reason is that Standup Paddling is FUN, easy to learn and anyone can do it!
SUP Yoga combines standup paddleboarding with the practice of yoga. Since our boards are stable and sturdy enough to act as floating yoga mats, it will seem natural to strike a pose on the water! The element of water will require you to engage additional muscle stabilizers, maintain balance, concentration and add a sense of playfulness to your practice. You’ll have a whole new relaxed perspective when you take your yoga to the H2O.
We love to explore! Whether it be an eco tour, special event or one of our popular retreats, all of our paddleboarding adventures will ease you away from the hustle of life, providing you and your group with the perfect combination of relaxation and fun. We’ll bring the boards, paddles, everything you need (we’ll even take some action shots of you on the water). All you need to bring is your sense of adventure!
