Pewaukee’s Koha Yoga & Paddle Boards

As the weather warms, Wisconsinites indulge their visions of beach days and boating. But if the same old water activities have you longing for something new, spice up your lake days with a fresh approach to fun, from exploring shipwrecks to hanging ten on Lake Michigan to showing off your offshore yoga skills.

YOGA ON THE WATER 

Pewaukee’s Koha Yoga & Paddle Boards is taking the revitalizing practice of yoga to the tranquil waters of Pewaukee Lake with SUP-Yoga, in which yogis practice their skills on anchored stand-up paddle boards. Available through the end of summer, Koha offers SUP-Yoga for all levels, as well as HIIT SUP, Intermediate/Advanced SUP and a “Sweat and Surrender” class.
