Here in Toronto, it is the PERFECT first day of summer. A gorgeous bluebird day! It’s also a great time to try some new summer activities!
A few weekends ago, I had an amazing weekend on the water at Sunnyside Beach learning yoga on a SUP!
Stand Up Paddleboading (SUP) is becoming my new favourite thing to do! I’ve always been a water person…just something about the water and the outdoors that just makes me feel at peace.
