Lazy Dog PaddleYoga Teacher Training


We have been running year-round for 5 years strong, and would like to share all that we have learned through our ACE PaddleYoga Certification. Key West Paddleboard Yoga began in August 2008 when local yoga instructor Tara McCabe and Lazy Dog owner Sue Cooper combined their two passions to create an alternative health and fitness program on the water. Now fully integrated under Lazy Dog, PaddleYoga has been able to reach new heights, new students and new possibilities. Join us to find yours!
