"Katie is an AMAZING yoga instructor. It was my first time on the a paddle board and she made sure to explain the best way to paddle and gave us great pointers. I was standing up and paddling by the end of the class! Her yoga class was so relaxing and she made sure to give us varying difficulties for each pose to include all skill levels. I would highly recommend this to anyone! I was nervous about it being on water but I think it took the yoga class to the next level! You get to enjoy gorgeous scenery while relaxing on the water! Great class and fantastic teacher!" Paige M. from Tri-cities, WA
"This was my third class this month with Katie and Jared. They are such a great couple to paddle with. I just bought a new board and they helped me with a couple of things I was not sure about after I had tried it out. I have learned something new each time out with them. I look forward to my next class and continuing to advance my skills with paddle boarding and yoga with Mermaid Yoga" - Dave E. from Bellingham, WA
