PLYMOUTH, Minn. -- A glistening Medicine Lake beckons swimmers, boaters and, increasingly, stand up paddleboarders.

SUP, stand up paddleboard, is sweeping the country, and Motivation Monday's Chris Freytag says one way to take it further is to try yoga on the board.

Paddleboards are about the width of a yoga mat, and Chris says it's a great way to strengthen your core, give yourself a new challenge with some familiar poses, and enjoy the great outdoors.

Numerous paddleboard retailers offer classes in basic paddleboard technique, and some are offering yoga experiences as well.  Opportunities exists through out the state, an internet search will likely turn up opportunities near you.

In July, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced eight state parks are now renting paddleboards.  Click on locations for more information.
