Yoga for Paddling:  Learning to care for your body in a whole new way!

“It’s a real-life tool for paddlers to become more aware of how their body functions.” – Sarah Callahan, SUP Examiner

Yoga for Paddling, by Anna Levesque is a great journey into longevity and health for stand up paddlers.  Including 30-35 anatomically correct stretches to help release tension in the muscles most used by paddlers and to strengthen the ones we tend to overlook, Yoga for Paddling is the how-to guide for fitness in summer paddling.

Anna Levesque is a leading expert in kayaking for women and yoga for paddling.  Named as one of the most inspirational paddlers alive by Canoe and Kayak magazine, she has been featured in Time, Shape and Self magazines.

The book offers a focus in yoga anatomy and alignment for canoeists, kayakers and stand up paddlers as well as offering tips on proper paddling technique, performance focus, relaxation and short stories about paddling injuries healed through yoga.  With a photo or two to demonstrate every pose, Yoga for Paddling also incorporates key points of alignment to help you get into and hold each pose safely.

I think that qualifies her to write the book, yes?  Looking forward to getting my hands on a copy and dive IN into this summer with a practice of Yoga for Paddling.  Thanks, BIC Sup!
