Our SUP yoga day-treat was born in 2013 over a cup of tea.
We wanted to get out on SUP boards to practice yoga. Even though it’s well-known in other parts of the world, it’s just starting up in Hong Kong.
So, we decided to organize our own SUP day (re)treats that would take everyone out to the waters and create an experience for people to connect to the sand, sea, SUP, practice yoga and connect to each other.
Nadine Bubner is an avid runner and triathlon athlete; with the rigorous exercise from running, cycling and swimming she found yoga a haven for both body and mind. Originally from Berlin – Germany, she has been practicing yoga for 8 years and teaching for the last 4 years. She is registered as a Yoga Teacher by the International Yoga Alliance (250 hours) with Yoga Limbs Hong Kong, Prenatal certified with Dr. Jean Byrne – theyogaspace Perth and will be a Holistic Health Coach (CHHC, AADP by 02/2015). She enjoys teaching yoga for runners, focusing on stretching and releasing tension that tends to develop in the hamstrings and hips and combines it with yin yoga and the insights that come with a slower, deeper, more introspective yoga practice.
Diana (Dee) Cheung, originally from Toronto, Canada, enjoys a sweaty pursuit that is challenging, fun and finishes with a coconut water. She first stepped onto her mat at 16 and started teaching yoga two years ago, completing trainings with Patrick Creelman, Radiant Child with Jenny Smith and Birthlight Baby Yoga with Sally Lomas. She loves working with children because they serve as a reminder to stay light, playful and curious all the time!
