Who We Are
SUP YO exists to connect like-minded souls through outdoor adventure. With transformative paddleboard yoga, hikes, retreats, and outdoor escapes, we inspire others to step outside of their comfort zones, challenge themselves in mind, body, and spirit, and discover their truest selves.
The world is too big and beautiful to remain unexplored. The same goes for your soul. SUP YO strives to share the love of nature and its healing powers with as many people as possible. Because the more we get outside, the more we can live free and explore within.
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.
Today SUP YO is considered an outdoor adventure lifestyle brand. Clients may start with a paddleboard yoga class or day hike and then quickly find themselves on an overnight wilderness retreat or a weeklong international adventure. Their children may even attend our Kids Clinics.
This spring of 2020, SUP YO celebrates their 9th year in business and although the company has evolved over the years, their mission and passion remain the same. SUP YO’s goal is to “inspire others to step outside their comfort zone, to challenge themselves in mind-body and spirit, to connect with nature and explore the outdoors with like minded individuals and to ultimately discover themselves.” Our excursions create a challenge as well as community and connection. People have a “face the fear and do it anyway” attitude and challenge themselves in ways they didn’t think were possible (sometimes that can be as simple as saying YES to adventure or to sharing a room with a total stranger, which isn’t really simple at all) and end up leaving a class, day hike, retreat or other adventure feeling confident, empowered, accomplished, joyful and with new connections and bonds. Some say “SUP YO changed their life.”
