Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to have experience using a stand-up paddleboard?
Of course, experience will be helpful, but it is not a requirement. You will gain some experience in the class. Doing yoga on a board and paddling are quite different, so you may find the yoga even easier than paddling or even standing on the board.

Do I need to be Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT)?
You can take this course without the 200-RYT or 500-RYT credentials, but you will not receive certification until you have received your RYT-200 or completed an acceptable training course in yoga.  Please ask Tara directly if you have further questions. It is important to have knowledge of yoga to take this training, and more important to have comprehensive education if you are to share the gift of yoga with others, whether on the mat or on the water.
