Join us at the South Ridge for yoga during both days of the Labor Day Celebration. Participants will meet 15 minutes prior to practice times in Outfitters and will be led to South Ridge by the instructor. Practices are one hour in duration and are led by a certified yoga instructor.
SUP Yoga offers guests the chance to take their yoga practice to the water atop stand-up paddle boards. Practice will be led by a local certified instructor on the flatwater of the Catawba River. There is no charge for SUP Yoga if participants bring their own equipment (SUP board, PFD, and paddle). If equipment is needed, it will be provided by the USNWC with the purchase of a Single Activity Pass, a Day Pass, or a Season Pass on a first come, first serve basis (SUP Yoga is limited to 20 participants). Please check in at the Kayak Center to reserve your spot 30 minutes prior to the start of the practice.
Pick your partner and let the festivities begin in the USNWC’s Labor Day Celebration Cornhole Tournament. Tournament check-in begins at 2:00pm.
