It’s all about a story and here’s mine!
My name is India and I grew up in Baltimore, MD, spending much time horseback riding in the Maryland countryside and boating on the Chesapeake Bay. After graduating from San Diego State University I backpacked solo throughout SE Asia, India, Nepal and Australia by the time I was 25. Still having “itchy” feet, I worked for Icelandair as an airline reservationist, then eventually moved to NYC and worked in the fashion industry. Eventually I ended up in Florida where I met a Canadian yacht captain. I quit my day job and travelled and worked around the world with him on Mega Yachts working my way up to Chief Stewardess. My first time on a SUP was in Palma, Mallorca, in 2011 after a very long summer working on a yacht in the Med. being out on the water on a SUP, I felt free and loved being surrounded by nature. I was instantly hooked. We eventually got married and bought a house in Costa Rica in 2014. I began my yoga practice in 2013 and received my RYT200 in 2015. That same year on another yacht and in a different spot in the world, I met a very special person in Mexico. She shared her love for SUP and Yoga and a whole lot of advice.
We moved to Costa Rica fulltime in 2016 to slowdown and find a balanced and active lifestyle. With the beach as my office I now have the ability to combine my passions for yoga and paddle boarding into one. Paddleboard Yoga has allowed me to find that balance. Even our dog Chole loves getting out on the boards every opportunity she can! Life is an adventure and sometimes you really just have to “go with the flow”.
