TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212;-Mountain Lotus Yoga, Tahoeand#8217;s only lakefront hot yoga studio, is offering the perfect yoga class for summer and#8212; stand up paddleboard yoga. Offered four times a week, this hour and a half class allows you to take your practice off the mat and onto Tahoeand#8217;s famed blue waters. The class starts inside the Tahoe City studio, then moves outside where students paddle out onto Lake Tahoe to perform floor postures (and standing postures if you want to practice your balance) on the board for an hour. After class is over, keep your board to paddle around the lake on your own for half an hour.

On Mondays and Fridays, students can also take yin-yang yoga, which focuses on balance, before the SUP class as a warm up. For students who want more studio time, all SUP classes are followed by either power vinyasa, hot yoga, or yoga sculpt classes.

Mountain Lotus rents stand up paddleboards for $20 a class, or $15 a class for monthly unlimited members. Buy a five-pack of SUP rentals for $50. You can also rent paddle boards for your own use outside of class.
