Aqua Om Paddle Introduces Berks County to Paddle Board Yoga
Aqua Om Paddle has brought Studio Yoga and Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga (SUP) to Birdsboro Fitness and Splash (BFS). Prices are $12 for Studio Yoga and $25 for SUP Yoga.
Co-founders Kami Kiritsis and Melissa Uhniat are holding a 250-hour YRT certification from Yoga Life Institute. Classes are currently held on Monday at 6 p.m., Tuesday at 10 a.m., Thursday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. The schedule is subject to change, and special events are frequently added.
The 10-foot paddle boards are extremely stable, but due to the fact that they are floating on water, the body interprets it as unstable, making voluntary and involuntary muscles constantly engage. This floating yoga practice requires constant presence; every breath, every bend and every motion demands focus on the current moment. Each class can be modified to any experience level, making it accessible for beginners.
Class passes are also available at a discounted price. Participants do not have to be a member of BFS to attend classes. Customers may call BFS to register for classes or book on the MindBody app under BFS.
Location: Birdsboro Fitness & Splash, 320 W. Main St., Birdsboro. For more information and events, call 610-575-0888 or visit AOPaddle.com.
