Try a unique way to discover the area while enjoying the perfect workout for your body, mind and soul at our floating studio in Niasca
A calming but challenging yoga practice on stand-up paddle boards floating on the clear blue sea in the bay of Niasca.
We meet at the beach for an introduction and then take our SUP boards: together we will paddle off sea and attach to the buoy to stay stable in the current.
You will be guided through a practice that starts slowly, letting you get used to the floating surface. You will then move into an easy flow and end with relaxation. SUP yoga engages the core muscles and strengthens various muscles that wouldn’t necessarily be used in a ground practice. Moving from pose to pose requires intense focus to keep the board steady and stay on it.

How to reach us
The meeting point is at our sports center in Niasca, in the Bay of Paraggi. Once in Santa Margherita L. continue towards Portofino until the bay of Paraggi. Passed the inlet of the bay, after 200m on the left you will find a sandy beach where Outdoor Portofino is located. This area has very limited parking areas, especially during summertime. In Paraggi there is a paid parking lot, but we suggest to reach our office by alternative means (bus, boat, bicycle) or walking from Portofino (about 10 minutes) or S. Margherita L. (about 40 minutes).
Here are some suggestions on how to reach us:
The train station of Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino is reachable from Milan (2 h 30 min), from Genoa (45 min), from Pisa (2 h). You may then continue walking, by bus, boat or taxi.
With the n. 82 line from the train stations of Santa Margherita Ligure or from Rapallo.

There are two lines serving the promontory of Portofino. From Santa Margherita Ligure you can reach Portofino with the Consorzio Marittimo del Tigullio. From Genoa, Recco or Camogli, instead, the boat service Golfo Paradiso, embraces the route to San Fruttuoso, from where you can then take the ferries of the Consorzio Marittimo del Tigullio to Portofino.
