“The Abrazo yoga board has been such a beautiful new addition to my board collection. Not withstanding its gorgeous aesthetics, it’s also a great all around board. Unlike many other yoga boards, this SUP is very designed for more than just yoga. It also has many great features including a go pro deck, a paddle holder on the railing, a fully padded deck (great for moving around during yoga), a shoulder strap, and so many fun accessories that come with the board.”

YOGAqua was founded by Sarah Tiefenthaler in July 2011 in Marina Del Rey, CA and has since opened a second location in Ventura, CA in 2018.
Sarah Tiefenthaler completed her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in the tropical jungles of Costa Rica where she focused intensely on the philosophy of yoga as well as
meditation practices. Just as soon as she returned to Los Angeles, Sarah enrolled in her second 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certification in Hollywood, CA at Earth’s Power Yoga where she was able to expand her knowledge of human anatomy and alignment in relation to yoga. After spending day after day in the magnificence of the Costa Rican jungle, Sarah still longed for any activity in which she could maintain a consistent presence in nature. And with that in mind, upon her return home, she soon discovered
her passion for Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) as it was the perfect solution that would keep her out in nature, on the water, and under the sun. With her obvious passion for yoga, it was not long before she began to experiment with yoga poses on the boards which was just the spark that very quickly led to the creation of YOGAqua. Sarah spent
day after day customizing yoga poses and sequences for the SUP boards, making it all possible and beneficial being performed on the water. She also frequented a local boat supply store searching for the right anchoring equipment that would keep her students safe from the dangers of free floating in a busy harbor-she even took classes on
splicing ropes and tying knots! And at the same time, she was working to build a team of amazing instructors.
YOGAqua was launched on July 17th, 2011 and is based in Marina Del Rey, CA. Sarah offers SUP Yoga Teacher Training Certification courses four times per year as well as SUP Yoga Retreats at some of the most beautiful locations around the world and is the SUP Yoga Program Coordinate for Wanderlust and Mammoth Yoga Festivals.
YOGAqua has been featured on countless News Programs, TV Shows and Magazines around the world! YOGAqua has maintained a large influence on the SUP Yoga
community since the origination of the sport, setting a high standard in the industry.
YOGAqua and Abrazo connected in 2021, and in 2022, formed a partnership to support each other in the growth of the SUP Yoga community as well as to build the most amazing SUP Yoga Stand Up Paddleboard!

“Paddleboard yoga is not merely practicing yoga poses on an anchored board, it’s a transcendent experience that brings you into a state of mindfulness and connection. SUP Yoga is about learning how to interpret conditions; understanding the wind and the tides and connecting with nature. Once you learn to read the water, then you begin flow with it. “
“This is my new favorite travel board! It’s beautiful and thoughtful design make it perfect for SUP yoga or just a day adventuring on the water. It has every design detail needed for functionality and portability. Even it’s compact bag is sturdy and amazing with wheels and straps for easy transport.”
