Last weekend Jessie Benson, founder FloYoFit came over to Amsterdam and thought these sup and yoga ladies a week of FloYo Fit and got them their certification! FloYo Fit is a sup yoga training and also has some fitness elements in the class which means it's not just 'Om' and does some serieus muscle work. Well done ladies. We have got another group of certified sup yoga teachers. See you all in 2017! We will for sure add these classes on our schedule next to the regular sup & yoga classes at Blijburg and our new spot in Amsterdam!
M&M Stand Up Paddling blog
Sometimes it is super fun to go paddle on a different and new location. We have paddles the Amsterdam canals many times by now and even these canals get the same after a while. SURF LIFE camp owner Harry Glotzbach is a dear friend and BOGA teamrider and lives right at the Amsterdam Forest where he took me for a paddle last month. While paddling the idea popped up to organize a up tour in this beautiful forest in Amsterdam. We had some rain, we had some cloudy, we had a bit of wind... But who cares... It was one of the most impressing paddles ever in Amsterdam. Afterwards we had some drinks and bites (thanks every one for taking some) and Harry and his girl played some songs so it did actually feel like an after paddle summer picknick! Felt like we were in a fairy tales forest trees hanging over our heads and silence filled with rain drops and birds singing. Amsterdam Forest we'll be back!
We are super happy with our newest instructor Brittanie. She just moved to Amsterdam with her husband and missed teaching sup yoga. Brittanie used to teach sup yoga at home in Houston and can't wait to step on board and start teaching again. Britannie hasher 200-hour registered yoga and is a registered SUP yoga instructor. In Houston she co-led SUP retreats and helped coordinate the volunteer and assisting program for the first SUP Program in Houston.
Come join one of the sup yoga classes at Wednesday 19.30-20.30 or Sunday mornings 11.30-12.30 we will also start with the three week sup yoga series again in June.
As there are so many sup schools, rental locations and sup locations opening in the Netherlands at the moment it is about time we start adding some quality to them and connect. M&M SUP is part of the SUPCLUB Netherlands group. About seven connected sup schools are combining their strength and know how in this group. All these schools are working with certified teachers (ASI, HSA, WSA etc) to make sure they know how to teach and work according to safety standards.
We are also collaborating and all have our own area';s we work in, as we these schools are located throughout the whole of Holland and we has a school in every area. In the near future more schools will be added to this great initiative that will guarantee quality and offers a wide range of sup classes, sup courses, sup tours and sup events locally or together. One of the first collars is the SUP & YOGA weekend in Eindhoven organized by M&M SUP (Amsterdam) SUPCLUB Eindhoven and PURA SUP (Roermond) the 9th and 10th of July. We believe that working together makes us stronger and offers much more for us and for you.
