Women's Water Workshop
Finding Balance and Harmony with Water
Welcome to our Women's Water Workshops. Our weekly workshops are designed specifically for women, including those who identify as women, to come together and learn new skills, challenge themselves, and have fun on the water. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced paddler, our workshops offer a range of skill-building activities that will help you improve your technique, fitness, mindfulness, and safety on the board while enjoying the sense of community that hanging with the ladies creates.
Workshops are every Wednesday from 7-9pm.
Outdoor & On Water Sessions
SUP Tips and Techniques: These workshops cover the basics of Stand up Paddleboarding (SUP) and provide on water guidance for proper paddling technique in various conditions. Some examples of skills we will introduce are paddling in a straight line, assisted and self rescues or pivot turns.
SUP Fitness: These sessions will focus on the fitness benefits of SUP and provide a workout designed for women. This could include a warm-up, paddling drills, and fun races based on the drill of the night to give a feel for the skill in action.
SUP Yoga: Want to expand your yoga practice or try something new that combines your love of the water with a stretching, strengthening and balancing workout? SUP yoga will provide a unique and challenging workout that will also emphasise mindfulness and relaxation. This could include an introduction to basic yoga poses on the board, a guided meditation or even some beginner breath work.
SUP Adventures: Short paddles in the local Sidney area will explore new coves, beaches and islands at a leisurely pace.
