Move over beer yoga. Here's a stand-up new option. 

Suffering a beer yoga hangover? Lucky there’s a new yoga trend to jump aboard—literally. It involves throwing sun salutations, on a paddleboard, cut adrift on the Chao Phraya River. 

Don’t worry, SUP Yoga Thailand's stand-up paddleboard (SUP) yoga classes take place upriver beyond Koh Kret where the water’s not such a worrying shade of murk. 

The next one happens this Sunday, May 14, upon the gentle waters of Bang Luang, Pathum Thani, which is about 30km north of BTS Mo Chit.  

The 60-minute class is open to all people with or without yoga or paddling skills, and costs B1,500 per person—just note, space is limited to a group of eight.

Incorporating aspects of surfing, SUP yoga is said to require a little more focus on your core than regular yoga, while also posing a challenge mentally if you want to avoid taking a quick dip.  

This Sunday's event starts at 4pm. Bookings at www.fb.com/thailandsupyoga or 087-794-6543.

In related news, beer yoga, the act of striking a pose while holding a lukewarm beer, last week raised the ire of Thailand's Ministry of Public Health, who in turn alerted the fun police. They’re now calling it illegal and future events are in doubt.
