Red Bank’s Maple Cove on the Navesink River has become a gently bobbing yoga studio, weather and tides permitting. “The [stand-up paddle] boards are more stable than you might think,” says Lincroft resident Sally El-Sadek, owner of Bodhi Ama SUP Yoga, who offers classes, complete with water-safety instruction, four or five times a week, at $45 per class. “It’s all about finding that connection to nature, but at the same time, we want everyone to feel safe and secure.”

Bodhi Ama is slated to participate in the annual Paddle the Navesink Day, scheduled for Saturday, September 12. The event showcases the recreational and educational qualities of the waterway. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
