Vela Sports Aruba
What better way to fully embrace being in the Caribbean than taking a yoga class on the water? It’s a challenge, but you’ll be anchored with your board, and you may surprise yourself at how well you do.
Enjoy an uninterrupted ocean view while your enthusiastic teacher takes you out for this exceptional experience. The goal of this yoga class on the water is to feel absolutely liberated, free your mind and absorb the serenity of the ocean. All teachers are certified yoga instructors with plenty of experience, and available to help whenever you need.
With over 30 years of experience in teaching wind- and kitesurfing, Vela Sports Aruba was the first place to introduce Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga. Ever since, Vela has been the hang out for beach and watersport enthusiasts. Whether you like to take it easy or are seeking the real thrill, there is an activity for everyone who visits Vela: windsurfing and kitesurfing lessons for beginners and advanced riders, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, pedal boating, beach cruiser bikes and kayaks.
