|Paddle boarding started in Hawaii in the 1960s and has since taken off on lakes and rivers across North America.|
Paddle boarding is believed to be one of the most effective ways to burn fat, but it's also a great stress fighter. My body falls into a steady rhythm and my mind eases into a gentle meditation. By the time I reach the middle of the lake, beads of sweat drip from my brow. After a refreshing dip in the cool water, I get back on my board and begin my yoga practice. Finally, I lay in savasana and breathe in the fresh air.
Enroll in a class or rent a paddleboard this summer! It's a full body workout that doesn't feel like one because it's so fun. All you need is a good board, lightweight paddle, sunscreen and a bathing suit.
