Turquoise Floating Yoga invites you to try paddle yoga and take your practice from the land to the sea. In case you are not familiar, paddle yoga is yoga on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP).
Meghan Swanson is the owner and teacher behind Turquoise Floating Yoga (TFY). Swanson has a number of certifications, including being a World Paddle Association (WPA) Certified SUP Instructor, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and an RYT-500 yoga instructor. For her, TFY combines so many things that she loves.
"As a former math teacher, I have a love for teaching. I grew up spending summers at the beach so I always had a deep appreciation for the water. As my yoga practice developed and deepened over the years it helped not only my physical fitness but it also made me an all-around calmer and happier person," said Swanson. "When I had the opportunity to move to Miami, I was inspired to start TFY so I could share SUP yoga with others that I hoped would benefit from the practice as much as I did."
Swanson offers paddle yoga, paddle fitness, and SUP lessons at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and Blue Lagoon Farm Miami. All sessions include the use of a BOGA YOGA paddleboard and all required gear, including a paddle, leash, & personal flotation device.
Whether you are looking for a lesson to learn the technique, the chance to relax and flow in nature, or a challenging HIIT workout on the water, Swanson has you covered. TFY offers sessions, lessons, small group classes, and events.
In addition to activities on the water, TFY is also a mobile yoga studio on land. Swanson will provide group classes or private sessions in your home, office, or community space throughout Miami. TFY provides everything you might need for the full yoga studio experience, including mats, blocks, and straps.
This year, Swanson also started offering virtual yoga classes as well so that you can practice anywhere.
"Give it a try and experience the bliss of flowing on water," says Swanson.
