A 2 hour workshop that integrates a yoga class with paddle board technique and instruction. Stephanie and Julie will be partnering and handing off from paddle board 101 on land, to a yoga warm up. They will take to the water with students and boards to do a brief paddle boarding instruction before anchoring in a scenic settling. Dropping anchor, class continues on the water. Students will take in the setting sun as Julie and Stephanie guide students back to shore and finish with a parting meditation.

This class is open to all genders. Board use, leash, anchor and PFD are all included. If choosing the BYOBoard ticket option, you must bring your own PFD (personal floatation device) and leash for your board.

The inflatable boards provided will offer plenty of stability to get into the workout routine.

About the organizer

Organized by
Julie A Miller


Julie Miller, MA, LPC is a licensed counselor, an athlete and an all around promoter of women's health and empowerment. She has 16 years experience in the fitness industry, providing group fitness instruction at Lifetime Fitness and also has worked for 25 yrs in education, with 22 of those years as a counselor.

She fell in love with the water and watersports at a very young age-- think waterskiing on her dad's shoulder at the age of 4! She continued to grow her love of watersports from water-skiing into surf, SUP, kayaking, and foil boarding. In the past 10 years, paddle boarding has expanded greatly as a passion for her as she continued into the world of racing, SUP surfing and SUP yoga. Recently, she became a brand ambassador of SIC Maui boards and loves the community and comradery that company and brand brings to her life!

Over the years, Julie continued to engage more and build more in the area of girl's and women's empowerment in her counseling practice and personally. In her own journey, Julie found that in launching herself into her wildest dreams of travel and adventure, and pushing herself outside of her comfort zone, that her own self love and confidence grew more immediately than other means or methods. As she began to share her passion and adventure with friends, she saw that this also translated and happened with others. So she dreamed of expanding this concept to a platform to help other women learn, grow, love and support themselves and one another in the process.

It's easy to see that the passion held for fitness, wellness, education and personal growth has led her to pursue sharing her love in a fusion format called UPLIFT! In winter 2020, Julie launched Uplift Adventure Retreats and she has many exciting ideas and projects on the horizon.
