SUP YOGA & NUTRITION WORKSHOP
In an effort to promote good health and wellness in combination with outdoor exercise and SUP yoga – Paddle Boarding Palm Beach and Bee Organics have teamed up for the ultimate, monthly fitness workshop. The first of these collaborations took place yesterday, February 22, 2014 on the waters of West Palm Beach. The entire purpose of the event is focused on the following:
1. Wellness Education Bee Organics owner Andrea Pertnoy, has opened a brand new organic juicing, wellness, and yoga storefront located in downtown West Palm Beach. Her knowledge on wellness and clean eating allows participants in this workshop to gain knowledge on what your body needs, how juicing benefits your body, and why it is so important to maintain this kind of lifestyle. for longevity of life and enhancing energy for yourself. It’s important to understand what exactly juicing is. It’s more than just “good for you”, there are specific ingredients, fruits, and vegetables that allow for your body to be better and work together as one, rather than having your insides battling against one another to digest the food you’re eating. Andrea gives a tasting and demonstration of one of her juices to start the class, and explains why that juice is beneficial at that point in time. Yesterday, we started with a “Heart Beet” as a pre-workout juice that helps to awaken the body and establish the nutrients needed to complete a workout.
2. Stand Up Paddle Boarding Paddle Boarding Palm Beach’s founder, Kyle Igneri, has built a community presence surrounding the sport of paddle boarding. As an experienced waterman, born and raised in Jupiter, Florida, Kyle has spent time in Hawaii surfing and fine tuning his SUP skills. Now home in Florida, he has expanded his love for the sport and built his own SUP shop located in the Riviera Beach Marina. Kyle makes sure to educate all new paddlers on the proper technique needed to excel in the sport and provides the best equipment and boards to enhance their paddling experience. Bringing all of this to the workshops allows for it to be for everyone. Even if you have never stepped foot on a board, Kyle will make sure you’ve the proper technique to have a great time out on the water!
