SUP YO was founded by Jana Olenio, yoga instructor, travel agent and NH native, and was created from pure passion for nature and outdoor adventure. SUP YO was originally formed in 2011 as a paddleboard yoga company that over time evolved into many other outdoor adventure offerings from day hikes to weeklong worldwide adventure trips.

Kim Howard

Kim Howard

Kim left a career in corporate HR and law to focus on bringing more balance into her own life. After practicing yoga regularly for over 5 years, Kim took a leap to the other side of the mat to better align her livelihood with her passion for teaching, fitness and mindfulness. She first turned to yoga to recover and stay in shape when an injury derailed her running, and in addition to the changes in her body, she was hooked on the mental and spiritual shift in her life. She completed her 200 CYT through Open Doors Yoga Studios and her 500 CYT with Sacred Seeds Yoga School. She holds additional certifications in Kids Yoga and Clinically Informed Restorative Yoga (CLIR) and is a Level I Balanced Athlete Coach. She also teaches graduate school and still does some consulting.

In addition to running and yoga, Kim is an avid hiker and loves the great outdoors. Most Thursdays she can be found hiking in the WMNF with her rescue pup, Susana. Last spring they both completed their first round of the NH48 and are slowly and steadily working on their grid, as well as the NE67 and 52WAV. In the summer, if she is not in the mountains she is usually on a lake or ocean on her paddleboard.

Kim teaches paddleboard yoga in our Hingham Harbor location as well as sunset paddles and kids classes. Kim also leads day hikes in the white mountains – please see our schedule for her 4,000 footer offerings.
