I sat down with Australian Gold Medal Triathlete Emma Snowsill this week as she officially announced her retirement from the sport of Olympic Distance Triathlon. Unlike her recent husband Jan Frodeno, the diminutive Aussie will not move from the Olympic distance into Ironman, she will walk away from the sport she helped to define. Snowsill started sport as a swimmer and recognized her youth swim coach for teaching her about work ethic, heart rate zones and a passion for competition. It seems you can't be a great female athlete from Australia named Emma and not eventually get pulled into the sport of triathlon (Emma Carney, Emma Moffatt and Emma Jackson are all world-class Emma's who have worn the Australian colours).
Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga with Caron Shepley.
Have you ever practiced SUP Yoga? It’s Yoga on a paddleboard! Personal Best offers this new Yoga experience, a simultaneously vitalizing and relaxing yoga practice which is very effective to improve tone and posture.
I’ve never been on paddleboard before, can I do SUP Yoga?
Yes, of course you can! You will begin kneeling on the board, it might not be easy for everybody to stand up at the beginning, but with time and practice you will get it. I have actually seen some people for whom it’s easier to do yoga on the board than to practice stand up paddle.
What kind of postures can we expect?
