Yes, you can actually practice yoga on a stand up paddle board

If you think balancing on one foot in yoga is difficult, try doing it while floating on water. Yep, people are taking to lakes and pools to practice stand up paddle board yoga, better known as "SUP Yoga."

Even the most seasoned yoga students can come and try sup yoga for the first time and they're going to be humbled.

People like Jenn Bodnar, co-founder and editor in chief of Yoga Digest magazine, SUP Yoga Instructor at DFW Surf, and long-time yogi said yogis are flocking to the sport for the extra challenge. 

Bodnar thinks SUP Yoga got its start from curious yogis looking for a new place to practice.

When you step onto a stand up paddle board, you automatically channel into every single thing you can, from your head to your toes.

SUP Yoga, like yoga on land, helps develop balance, strength and flexibility. Though the instability of standing on a board on water amplifies these benefits. 

A lot of classes also incorporate meditation and mindfulness in the practice.
