Our Story

Dunmore East SUP and Yoga is a family run business which grew from a passion for the ocean and Dunmore East. We started Standup Paddleboarding ourselves a number of years back initially as a way to get out on the water and enjoy the many benefits that the sport. But it also allowed us to connect both individually as a family while out on the water and switch off from the hectic lifestyles we see today. From that point on it was clear that the waters around Dunmore East and Standup Paddle Boarding had a lot to offer and it was the perfect activity for the perfect area. From there we commenced our instructor training, school accreditation and beach lifeguard training and set up the business. We also offer Yoga and Mindfulness sessions both on and off the water.

Bluemind Theory

Our practises and concepts are based around Bluemind.

The term Blue Mind describes the meditative state we fall into when near, in, on or underwater.  It’s the antidote to what we refer to as Red Mind which is the anxious, over-connected and over-stimulated state that defines the new normal of life” !. (J.Nichols, PHD June 2015)

Although a relatively new theory, Blue Mind is proving to be a credible holistic approach to a wide and varied range of physical and mental challenges we now face in our fast-paced world! Here at Dunmore East SUP and Yoga, we embrace Blue Mind in every aspect of the school.

Incorporating mindful practices within our lessons such as Pranayama, Shavasna and Yoga or just simply pausing to take in the beautiful surroundings while noticing the gentle eb and flow of the ocean. This can be a transformative experience for even the greatest septic!  We believe that Blue Mind is available to everyone and offers a wide range of initiatives.
