FloYo® was created out of a passion for being active on the water. FloYo founder, Jessie Benson, has always loved being on the water and as a collegiate rower she was able to combine her sports background with her love of water sports. A few years after leaving the rowing world Jessie discovered standup paddling while travelling in the Gili Islands and instantly fell in love. The second she stepped on a board for the first time she began to dream about ways to combine her passion for teaching group fitness classes with the blissful feeling of being on a board.
In 2012 FloYo was born and since then the classes have been refined to create the full mind/body experience that they are today. FloYo classes are now being taught around the world with over 100 active FloYo teachers offering classes in all corners of the globe from Nicaragua to Australia. FloYo classes are currently offered at some of the world's most prestigious fitness centers and resorts including The Four Seasons, Rancho Santana and Secrets Resorts. The FloYo teacher training is consistently recognized as one of the most comprehensive SUP Fitness Trainings in the world and is offered in North America, South America, Canada, Europe and Australia. FloYo has been featured at some of the largest fitness conferences and festivals, including the ECA World Fitness Conference, Wanderlust Festival (North America as well as Australia and New Zealand) and WSSC Conference.
FloYo is constantly evolving as the sport of SUP continues to grow and evolve. We are excited to launch of FloYo Success School in 2018. This continuing education platform is the first of it's kind in the industry!
