Jennifer teaches paddleboarding & paddleboard yoga. She was introduced to SUP from a fellow yoga teacher and dear friend and fell in love with the combination of nature and wellbeing. She’s usually better recognised as the owner of Clyde, the SUP pup who is frequently photographed on his tours of London canals.
Anu loves exploring the world on paddleboard. Originally from Finland, she currently calls London home. Anu discovered SUP in 2011 and took my ASI SUP certification in 2014.

Rachael discovered her love of sport when she began trampolining at the age of three and competed nationally for several years. Following her interest, she moved from the North East to London to study for a Master’s degree in Sports Therapy. Living on the coast, Rachael spent a lot of time on the beautiful beaches and in the very cold North Sea. So she began paddleboarding in London to bring a sense of the coast to the city.
Inspired by how much yoga has changed and shaped her own life, Laura is passionate about helping others access its many benefits to create stronger, healthier bodies, improved focus and a renewed sense of purpose. Her teaching is intuitive and nurturing and her classes are playful, creative, delicately balancing effort with ease and influenced by her wide experience practicing with highly regarded and inspirational teachers over the past 17 years. Yoga on a paddle board combines Laura’s love of nature, fun and the outdoors with all the amazing benefits of a traditional yoga practice.
Fabienne took to paddleboarding a few years ago to balance her day job of running a hair salon in Richmond. She loves the feeling of peace and tranquillity being on the water creates. It also gives her a connection to nature in a busy city. Ask Fabienne about her favourite SUP destinations. She has paddled in some incredible places.
Lesley started Paddleboarding a few years ago after a taster session on the River Great Ouse in Bedford, her local river. She fell in love with paddleboarding straightaway and after spending as much time as I could on the river and attending different SUP courses and clinics, she decided to go for her ASI Level 1 SUP Instructor Qualification. After completing her shadowing hours at Paddleboarding London, she passed with flying colours.
Lesley is now the proud co-founder and co-owner of Heron and Hush Paddleboarding in Bedford where not only do they know the huge impact and importance of Paddleboarding for mental and physical wellbeing but they have a lot of fun too.
Lesley is totally hooked on SUP for its peace and tranquillity, exercise benefits and generally just being able to get outdoors and on the water and love to see the joy it brings to new and experienced paddlers alike.
