Floyo Paddleboard Yoga

About the FloYo Teacher Training


The FloYo Teacher Training curriculum was developed in 2012 with the intention to create a weekend course that would give yoga instructors the skills they need to take their teaching to the water. With numerous contributors, we have developed a solid 2 and a half day certification that includes water rescue and general paddle skills. FloYo has led SUP yoga teacher trainings, workshops and retreats at some of the most beautiful paddle destinations around the world. Once certified, FloYo instructors join a global community of SUP yogi’s teaching the branded FloYo classes and continuing to learn and spread the joy of FloYo with our international affiliate network and continuing education platform.
