Having been surfing since the age of 18, Gabe has surfed all over the world.
Having lived in both the East coast and the West coast of USA, chasing hurricanes and swells. He has influenced yogis to paddle out, and surfers to flow with the Sun.
Gabe’s passion for the Ocean has been a source of inspiration in the yoga room. The beauty of the horizon while sitting on a board found vocabulary through Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
In his trips around the world, Gabe has had the pleasure of discovering the fun and enjoyment of combining his two favorite activities when he started SUP Yoga.
When the surf is down, or he finds himself far from the Ocean, Gabe heads to still waters to look at the horizon from different points of views. For those who find surfing challenging Gabe has been able to offer an opportunity to be on a surf board, while inspiring them to practice on the Mat.
In the words of one of Gabriel’s teachers, David Williams, ‘Yoga should be fun, and inspire other for practice.’ With Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga, Beginners and Advanced Yoga students discover a new perspective and passion for Yoga on the Mat. Along with connecting with Nature, SUP Yoga Teacher Training offers you a new experience as both a Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Enthusiast.
The joy and pleasure you discover by watching students conquer the fear of “standing on water” through engaging in something that connects beyond themselves, both to Nature, and their larger self, will inspire you to work with paddle board companies, students and beginners. This lies at the core belief of H3 Yoga, to build and create a universal community, both within Yoga, and other activities.
You will learn basic board safety, how to handle a board, as well as how to guide others through Yoga on the Board. While instructions can seem similar as teaching traditional postures, the buoyancy on top of water provides for a variety of modifications, and adjustments to a more traditional practice.
H3 Yoga’s First SUP Yoga Teacher Training was held in Boise, ID, in collaboration with Hollywood Market Yoga and Corridor Paddle Board Company.
