Water Element Yoga A Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking Retreat

Dive into the nourishing properties of water, the fourth of the five great elements, the source of all life and the container of prana, the energy that courses through the universe. Expertly led by our certified guides and teachers, you discover the joys of yoga and meditation on boards and boats on our very own Lake Mahkeenac. Flow into new states of tranquil strength and calm poise, and connect to the deep rhythms of nature as you explore both the great outdoors and your inner landscapes.

This program offers

  • Stand up paddleboard and kayaking skills and water safety
  • Floating yoga classes and meditations
  • Strength, balance, and confidence building to enhance your practice anywhere.

Note Boards, kayaks, paddles, and safety equipment are provided by Kripalu. If you would like to bring your own equipment, please contact us in advance for storage parameters.
