Root SUP was founded and created by Emma and Amy. Their friendship was founded on their love for SUP and the first time they met was in one of Emma's SUP Yoga classes.
Amy Buno, founder and instructor
Amy bought her first paddle board immediately after trying one for the first time. She knew that this act of balancing on the water was for her. After moving to back to Michigan from Colorado, her love for SUP grew. Amy has been practicing yoga since 2002, so yoga on the board seemed like a natural fit to her. She obtained her Registered Yoga Teacher 200 in 2017 with SUP Yoga as her number one passion. She became the first graduate of the Root SUP Yoga Teacher Training and is excited share her love of paddle board yoga with you.
Emma Grace, founder and instructor
As soon as Emma first stepped on a paddle board she knew she was meant to do yoga on it. It took her a few years to become more passionate and buy her own boards, but soon she was practicing yoga on the water and racing every chance she got. She became an Registered Yoga Teacher 200 in 2014 and has been practicing yoga since 2006. Emma completed a SUP Yoga Teacher Training and Level 1 World Paddle Association Instructor training in Chicago in June 2015. She started teaching SUP yoga in the Ann Arbor area right after finishing her training. Emma completed her SUP Level 1 & 2 American Canoe Association Instructor training in June of 2019.
