Parkview YMCA to offer summer SUP classes

Posted: Friday, May 31, 2019

Parkview Huntington Family YMCA will offer free Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) classes this summer. The free first launch SUP classes will be held on Saturday, June 15 at Lake Clare. The classes will then officially begin on Monday, June 17. The SUP Float classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays at noon; SUP Yoga on Mondays and Wednesday at 10 a.m. and SUP Combo classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.

YMCA and community members are invited to try the SUP classes for free. So grab a friend and help kick off summer and these new classes or stop by the YMCA to reserve your spot. There will be three sample thirty minute classes.

SUP Yoga classes will be held at 10 a.m. SUP Combo will be held at 11 a.m. and SUP Float at 12 noon. SUP Yoga is practiced on a stand-up paddle board and commonly known as SUP Yoga. Combining the two practices increases overall strength, balance, stability, and encourages present moment living. Practice poses for all levels of paddlers and yogis. Come flow and float while meditating to the sound of nature. The SUP Combo class infuses SUP skills and exploration of Lake Clare, while learning a few fun things and beginning yoga poses along the way. The SUP Float class will include exploration of Lake Clare, while learning the basics of stand-up paddle boarding. Get a great work out and have fun enjoying the outdoors.

There is a cost per class session, which is reduced for “Y” members. For discounted rates, participants can sign up for seven or more class sessions. The minimum number of participants for each class is five people, with a maximum number of eight people. Classes are for ages 14 years and older.
