ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A couple dozen people tried their hand at an exercise with a higher difficulty level out on the water at Chehaw Sunday.

Stand UP Albany Paddleboard Co. hosted several SUP Yoga pop-up classes on the water.

SUP Yoga is a new sport that combines stand up paddleboarding and yoga.

Stand UP Albany Paddleboard Co. owner Sylvia Maxwell said it's good for increased balance, strengthening your core, and increased blood flow.

"Our students are willing to step on the edge of sharing themselves and being willing to fall on the water and take a chance and try a new pose," said Maxwell.

Kayak Attack Adventures helped host the classes at Chehaw.
