Yumi Hi’s SUP yoga sessions are held daily at a prestigious location on the famous Waikiki Beach, at Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Yumi Hi’s classes are suitable for any level and any age, beginner-advanced, and previous paddling or yoga experience are not required. Kids are welcome as well and swimming ability is not required as the classes take place in the shallow and calm ocean waters with no waves, in the beautiful Hilton Hawaiian Village Lagoon, ocean front with a beautiful background of the Waikiki beach and the Diamond Head.
Yumi Hi, E-RYT 200, has been practicing yoga for 17 years. Her passion for SUP yoga began 10 years ago when she used to compete in tandem surfing. To pass time while waiting for the waves, she used to stretch and do yoga poses on her surfboard which led her to fall in love with it as it was both challenging and fun. With much practice and research, Yumi created her own SUPer yoga sequences suitable for the board in the ocean for every level. In order to share her passion for SUP yoga with her friends, she became a certified and registered yoga teacher in 2012. To ensure her students would be safe while in the water, Yumi became a certified lifeguard as well. Since then, Yumi has been constantly on the board, teaching SUP yoga classes every day. On her days off you will still see her out in the ocean on her board!
