As aquatic fitness gains momentum and popularity, we have recognized the need to create a yoga and fitness program that can be accessible to all, and in all seasons. With this in mind, we have created a brand new program, and are so excited to announce, Float Into Fitness – Pool Teacher Certification! We are taking SUP Yoga and Fitness into the pool with our signature Paddle Into Fitness flows modified specifically for pool training. Get certified to teach Gentle Wave, Nautical Flow, Surfer’s Sculpt. Learn pool set up & safety, including a ‘how-to’ for pool classes, and earn a Boga FITMAT Level 1 certification.
ALOHA! We will be holding a SUP Teacher Certification in Hawaii in February, in collaboration with Yoga Floats. Registration is now open on our website. Click here for full event info and details.
We just wrapped up our first Master Training in San Diego! We have nine new Master Instructors who are now “certified to certify” students in PIF SUP, SUP Yoga, SUP Fitness, and WPA Level 1. Congratulations, and we look forward to seeing you share the SUP stoke around the world! Our next Master Training will be March 23-26, 2017 (for PIF graduates only).
Feel free to share your paddle adventures and pics with us by email or on instagram by tagging us.(@paddlefitness #livelaughpaddle) We love to see where our PIF Ambassadors and fellow paddlers are floating around! We hope to see you on the water!
The Paddle Into Fitness Team
Janna grew up in Florida but didn’t get into surfing until her early 30’s. Knowing surfer beach life was in her future, she moved in Maui in 2007 and was luckily to get exposed to SUP early on.
“Pro SUP rider Ann Marie Reichman was great to teach me and I was hooked. I instantly wanted to spend more time on the boards and thought of getting people out in Toronto, on the lakes”.
She finished her 200hr yoga teacher training in 2008 and started her company, SUPGirlz, in Toronto the same year. She has been a vegetarian for 20+ years and has run SUP surfing/ vegan retreats in Ecuador since 2009. Competing sometimes in SUP surfing and SUP racing, she leads workshops and classes most of the year, teaching teachers and students all elements of SUP and surfing.
She is master certified through PIF and WPA, and additionally holds certifications from ISA and YA. More info on retreats at Love Life Adventures and Adicto Surf. Janna is happy to be part of the Rogue SUP team, too!
