SUP LT floats water wranglers out to the waves, where they can enjoy a relaxing and watery excursion. Standing aboard a fresh new fleet of paddleboards, which resemble large surfboards, lake-bound wayfarers navigate Lake Travis using hand paddles and their own inner GPS systems. Paddlers of all ages and ability levels are welcome to ride SUP LT's buoyant vessels, which glide around Lake Travis' glassy, scenic surface for two hours before returning safely home. Veteran instructors are also on-hand to help beginners learn the basic navigation and balance skills necessary to have a fun and safe ride and to avoid purse-snatching trout.
Sail & Ski Center's amiable staff of sports enthusiasts and shipwrights keep outdoor voyagers plying the waves and skimming down mountainsides with boat-maintenance services and an array of watersport and snow-sport accouterments. Like snagging an entire tray of cheese samples, the vast emporium of snowboards, skis, and wakeboards allows visitors to try out wares before they buy, sending thrill-seekers sailing over seas and snowdrifts atop such brand names as Hyperlite, Liquid Force, Saloman, and Mission 7. The talented servicefolk at Sail & Ski Center also sell, repair, and refurbish a broad spectrum of watercrafts, including yachts, jet skis, motorboats, and rocket-powered dinghies.
Balance Yoga’s instructors aim to do more than just give their students a rewarding workout routine—they also help build sound, centered minds and a positive supportive community. Students enroll in a wide range of classes, tackling everything from the core-strengthening poses of Vinaysa flow to the muscle-strengthening Yoga Sculpt, and the slow-pace of Balance Hot Yoga within a heated studio with bamboo floorboards.
After a workout, yogis can head to the spacious locker rooms to shower and ready themselves for the workday. Balance Yoga also unites practitioners of all ages with workshops and events such as kids' classes, art shows, and festivals.
Hips swivel and shake to pulsating beats as certified personal trainer Cyndi Allard leads vibrant cardio-dance classes in fresh-air settings.
