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.

Vanessa O'Leary

Vanessa is a mother of 3 and a resident of Hingham MA. She has been teaching yoga in her kindergarten classroom for 20+ years with an emphasis on helping children find balance and pair their breath with poses. She uses these strategies as a tool for kids to manage their busy school days while staying mindful and focused.

Vanessa has been an avid Paddleboarder since she discovered the popular on-water sport in 2012.  She immediately purchased her own board (see bio photo of her balancing onboard with her 3 children) and enjoys paddling with her kids as well as getting out on her own practicing yoga and paddling every chance she can get. Vanessa joins the SUP YO team as a kids paddleboard instructor and will teach 3 day clinics in Hingham.
