— an announcement from Darien YMCA


SUP Youth offers two classes: SUP Yoga and SUP Fitness. Both require no prior paddleboard experience, making it a great place to start:

SUP Yoga takes yoga to the next level. It will help to improve core strength, balance, and focus, all while enjoying the aesthetic Holly Pond. SUP Yoga will be offered on Mondays (July 10, 17, and 24) and Fridays (July 14, 21, and 28) from 4 to 5:15 p.m.

SUP Fitness is a great way to switch up a workout.
