Josh Plotkin

You and the Mat, Stand Up Paddle Company

For Josh, not only does yoga offer a way to help elongate and strengthen the body, it gives the even greater benefit of calming and focusing the mind. Recognized by Laguna Beach Magazine as one of Laguna's Super Athletes, Josh's teaching style is invigorating, incorporating heart-pumping playlists with an emphasis on practicing "your" yoga (meaning take a child's pose whenever you need) and having fun with the practice. When he is not in the studio you can find him lacing up his nike free's and pounding the pavement or the trails in Laguna Beach. He spends as much time as possible in the ocean, surfing or paddle boarding. And when the body finally tells him to take a break, he enjoys strumming his six strings.
