Osha Paddle Boarding & Yoga
Jennifer Rudski used to spend her free time carving down mountains as a snowboarder—until the day she lost her board on a bumpy road trip. Rather than give up, she took a zen approach to the situation and saw it as a chance to give surfing a try. Now, as an avid international surfer, she's found yet another board-based calling in stand-up paddleboarding. Aided by fellow outdoor sports enthusiasts, she—now a Paddle Canada-certified SUP instructor and Yoga Alliance-certified teacher who's been practicing yoga for more than ten years—organizes various tours and classes through Osha Paddle Boarding & Yoga and has since 2009. The company's signature lesson is Paddle-Flow Yoga, which combines the natural core-strength exercise of paddleboarding with the meditative, flexibility-boosting benefits of yoga. Each class covers flowing yoga sequences on land and on water between short paddles, helping participants build a link between the natural worlds and sympathize a little bit more with amphibians. Private and group intro to stand-up paddleboarding classes are also offered to prepare clients for this undertaking or several scenic tours. Based in Toronto's western beaches, these paddleboard excursions explore the shores and open water of the Humber River, Cathedral Bluffs, and Toronto Island. There's also a full summer schedule so participants have the opportunity to continue paddle boarding after they take the lesson.
