Yoga for Paddling:  Learning to care for your body in a whole new way!

“It’s a real-life tool for paddlers to become more aware of how their body functions.” – Sarah Callahan, SUP Examiner

Yoga for Paddling, by Anna Levesque is a great journey into longevity and health for stand up paddlers.  Including 30-35 anatomically correct stretches to help release tension in the muscles most used by paddlers and to strengthen the ones we tend to overlook, Yoga for Paddling is the how-to guide for fitness in summer paddling.

Anna Levesque is a leading expert in kayaking for women and yoga for paddling.  Named as one of the most inspirational paddlers alive by Canoe and Kayak magazine, she has been featured in Time, Shape and Self magazines.

The book offers a focus in yoga anatomy and alignment for canoeists, kayakers and stand up paddlers as well as offering tips on proper paddling technique, performance focus, relaxation and short stories about paddling injuries healed through yoga.  With a photo or two to demonstrate every pose, Yoga for Paddling also incorporates key points of alignment to help you get into and hold each pose safely.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
