SUP Southern Maryland, Chesapeake Bay
Program Director, April Tucker, created the first SUP (stand-up paddle board) yoga classes in Southern Maryland on the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay in 2012. She developed a relationship with a local adventure center who rented the SUPs and gathered four of her friends and fellow yoga instructors to learn about teaching SUP yoga. April was featured in the Summer 2012 Southern Maryland, this is Living Magazine and was interviewed by the Washington Post fitness section in June 2012. However, April's offerings were short-lived as an unexpected turn of events brought her back to the Southern California region. It is April's desire to return to teaching SUP yoga and offering a teacher training certification in the discipline.
