Coolest Way to do Yoga
Emerald Coast Paddleboard
850-389-3229
 
The two most relaxing activities have teamed up and made their way to Niceville – paddleboarding and yoga.  Emerald Coast Paddleboard, a new business in Niceville, offers SUP yoga classes and paddleboard excursions on the bayside. 
 
Dana Davis, founder and instructor for Emerald Coast Paddleboard, has been practicing yoga for seven years and has lived in the area since 1970. She established the business because she wanted to focus on the local community and offer families outdoor fun at an affordable price.
 
The SUP yoga classes improve balancing skills and settle the busy mind – don’t we all need that! Anyone can do it and no experience is required.  “Just bring your sense of humor. Falling is half the fun,” Davis says. 
 
A brief paddleboard instruction is provided on shore. Each board is equipped with a personal flotation device, paddle, leash and dry bag. The yoga class offers modifications and is tailored to meet the experience level of each participant.  
 
ECP offers regular classes throughout the week at Twin Cities Park, Lincoln Park, and Baytowne Marina, or you can schedule a private group class. You also have the option to BYOB (bring your own board), or rent a board through the company. 
 
ECP’s motto is “For the Adventure in All of Us,” so locals, this one’s for you. Grab a paddleboard, because the adventure is on this side of the bridge.
