What happens if it rains the day of class?
All classes are held outdoors, therefore we are at the mercy of mother nature.

If a class in canceled because of weather, we will notify you at least 90 minutes before the start of class either via text message or email. You will have the option to refund your class payment or keep class credit to be used at your next availability.
What should I wear for class?
No matter if it’s a sup yoga lesson or a stand up paddle board lesson consider wearing clothes you can move around in and that are dry-wiking materials, bathing suits, or yoga clothes are ideal. Consider avoiding cotton fabrics.
Should I arrive early for class?
Please consider arriving at least 15 to 20 minutes early for class if this is your first time. This will help you location our launch location, complete your waiver, and talk with your instructor about any questions you may have.
Do you have storage for valuables?
Miss Melanie Yoga is not responsible for any valuables that are lost while on or at the water. Please consider what you should wear or bring that could potentially be lost at sea. Miss Melanie Yoga is willing to hold onto keys for your cars, but claims no responsibility for cars or valuables in your cars while parked at the water ways during classes.
What should I bring with me for a class on the water?
A positive attitude, a willingness to play, and learn for starters. You do not need to bring a water proof camera, Gopro, or cell phone on the water unless you have something to carry it in. Most boards have tie down straps to hold shoes or water bottles. However, don’t bring your best ones in case you fall in and items fall off your board. Most items do not float. Do bring a hat, sunblock, a snack and extra water for after class.
