Wellness news: the Be Kind To Yourself SUP Yoga and Mindfulness event


As the weather warms up many of us start to see the ocean as a playground in earnest, and checking out the upcoming Be Kind To Yourself event is a great way to kick of a summer of wellness and fun in the great outdoors.
Pod: Be Kind To Yourself is a day of SUP, SUP Yoga, and Mindfulness workshops with organic raw food by SIP Kitchen, massage, and SUP Prehab Q&A with Pinc and Steel cancer rehab physios.  It is aimed at all levels of paddler - from 'terrified (never paddled before, i.e. me)' to 'ready to turn pro’, and takes place at Auckland’s beautiful Castor Bay Beach on Sunday 18th October.
There are limited spaces available (total 48) and the earlybird ticket price is $169 - before 30 September, or $199 after.
Special guests at the event include:
* Pyschologist Anna Friis, who will be introducing the day with a Mindfulness and Self Compassion workshop http://www.annafriis.com/
* Tim Seuter, from YogaFire - a yoga teacher and fireman who specialises in SUP Yoga - http://www.yogafire.co.nz/
* Natalie Stettler, from The Floating Mat - a yoga teacher and Lululemon ambassador who will be leading the mindfulness and goal-setting workshops - www.themat.co.nz
* Victoria Stuart - PaddleFit Level 3 Coach and Starboard ambassador, who will be teaching the beginner and Intermediate SUP - www.supsnz.com
* Armie Armstrong - Incredible Waterman and SUPer Sessions Coach, who will be teaching the Advanced SUP
* Lou James - Pinc and Steel Cancer Rehabilitation Trust Founder and PaddleOn SUP Rehabilitation Program developer, with PaddleOn physios Megan Schmidt, Kath Broad, and Kate Corbett www.pincandsteel.org.nz 
Natalie and Victoria are organising the event, which is the third in a popular and successful series that included “Keep Calm and PaddleOn” last year and the “Pod Wellness Retreat” the previous summer. "We wanted to hold the event in October as a way of supporting Pink October, International breast cancer awareness month, because we truly believe that stress and exercise play a critical role in your overall health and wellbeing, as well as regular breast checks,” says Victoria.
A portion of proceeds from the event will go to Pinc and Steel Cancer Rehabilitation Trust for the PaddleOn program, which kicks off again 2 November for men and women with all types of cancer.  www.paddleon.co.nz
