Module #1: Paddleboard Foundations

Letting Nature Be Your Guide...
Taught by YACEP Providor Elissa Voigt
Prerana Yoga, The Power of Water, and The America Canoe Association have charted a path beyond industry fads to help yoga teachers and healers carry their knowledge and power onto the water.  Learn how to respect and work with your water element, and, in the process,  become an ambassador for the environment and a leader on the water.

This course will provide you with the techniques and structure required to deliver complete paddleboard yoga classes.   It will also develop the skills necessary to be a connected, dynamic and safe leader on the water.

Prerequisite  All levels are welcome.  We reccommend some paddleboard and yoga experience.  In order to recieve your endorsement you must have a yoga teacher training certificate and a Level 1 Sup instructor certificate through the ACA.  Please not that we offer both integrated (SUP Yoga endorsement + SUP Instructor training) and non-integrated (strictly SUP Yoga Endorsement) programs)


Paddleboard Foundations curriculum is designed to empower you with the teaching, safety, and business skills needed to become a successful paddleboard yoga instructor.   Paddleboard yoga provides an intense and challenging learning environment, from both the perspectives of student and teacher.  Our program allows you to navigate the multiple learning styles and comfort zones of your students while keeping your group safe and comfortably working their way towards their goals.

Yoga Alliance  Prerana Aerial Yoga Teacher Training  hours count as continued education credits towards Yoga Alliance RYT requirements.  While you do not need to be certified yoga teacher to take our courses, you must have training as a yoga teacher in order to receive an endorsement.

Only 3 miles from the Capitol of Lansing, this 15 acre lake offers handicap access, on-site lavatories and plenty of parking close to the access point.  The water is clean, deep and quiet, offering the ideal venue for your SUP YOGA practice.  A swim hole for as long as anyone can remember, and almost forgotten and abused as a resource, this lake became a special story of redemption and healing when the people of Lansing decided to invest over 7 million dollars into restoring this natural habitat.  Come play!
