Creating balance in the new year – welcome 2015

Personally, 2014 was a year of remarkable change . Who knows what 2015 has in store, but one thing is sure – more change and more balance. As my deathewayisnotintheskyr friend Randy Johnson from Minnesota Stand-Up Paddle and Sail states: stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) and yoga on SUP is like cultivating stability on an unstable platform.

As intimidating as that may sound, for me, the true flow of yoga is captured on a board in the water. Your breath keeps in time with the current, the water reflects your every move and each posture has more shock absorbency as you stand on something more flex flowing than the earth. Every pose and breath seems to be a parallel to that of the world that surrounds you.  And lets face it, if you fall in the water it is much more refreshing than face planting on a hard wood floor.
