About Chicago S.U.P Yoga
Mary Lou Cerami is a level 2 SUP instructor certified thru the American Canoe Association (ACA), which provides one of the most thorough and safety-conscience watersport certifications in the industry today. Mary Lou is on the collaborative team for SUP Yoga Certification with the ACA and is currently offering trainings for aspiring SUP Yoga instructors.
A freelance web & graphic designer, Mary Lou has been creating all manner of design from customized print projects to end-to-end web solutions for both corporate & small business through her company, mloudesign inc since 1998.
An avid paddler and outdoor enthusiast, Mary Lou combined her love of nature and teaches Standup Paddleboard (S.U.P) Yoga classes every summer with Kayak Chicago. Balance is key in Mary Lou’s life, whether she is teaching a SUP Yoga class at Montrose beach, or working on the latest website for Cutting Edge Practice, for whom she’s been a dedicated designer since 2005.
Balance also led Mary Lou to Indo Board, for whom she is a Fitness Brand Ambassador & Master-level trainer. The Indo board is a balance board that simulates surfing and balance moves on land. Mary Lou created her own brand of balance class and teaches Indoboard “Balance Core Yoga” – emphasizing the importance of a strong core, good form and ultimately creating a full body workout that’s a lot of fun.
Mary Lou’s goal as an instructor is to create a sense of community while sharing the simple beauty of yoga and its path to self-acceptance through awareness of the body. She discovered a healthy active lifestyle can become part of all our lives when fitness itself is made fun and accessible. She strives to inspire that sense of adventure in every class she teaches.
COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY
Chicago S.U.P Yoga has been focused on sustainability towards our lakes & beaches before SUP Yoga became the buzz word that is it today. Our company is committed to continue working with those who hold the same values towards our natural environment and reducing negative human impact on our lakes and rivers on which we play.
