    You have so many great events happening in your town! Love the idea of paddle board yoga but am terrified of falling in the water whenever I see someone doing it (this fear stems from not being able to swim).

    That’s awesome you are doing an instagram takeover! Thanks for sharing and so wish I lived closer!!

    • Jessica May 2, 2017 at 10:55 am

      We really do! I am afraid of falling in on a paddleboard in normal clothes, but I would feel safe in this controlled environment (pool) with my suit on.
