Meet Lynn Upthagreove:  Hostess, Paddler and Cedaroma Lodge Innkeeper 

A tad nutty and oodles of fun, Lynn first got on the yoga mat on May 2, 2015 and hasn't gotten off yet. Within weeks of her first class Lynn started up Yoga-Roma offering yoga on the beach at Cedaroma Lodge with her instructor for the 2015 summer season.


In August that year Lynn entered a paddling race and came in second in the women's division for kayaking, but was more intrigued by those racing on the stand up paddle boards. The next day she got on one of the resort boards and only put it away when we got our first winter snows. Paddling has become Lynn's passion and so began Yoga Paddler in the 2016 season blending Lynn's love of both sports... SUP Yoga and the name change to YogaPaddler.


Lynn enjoys a weekly paddle-out on Monday afternoons exploring random area lakes starting in May and invites you to join her. Lynn also hosts the popular Full Moon: Paddle, Dine & Gaze night paddle outings. We have boards to rent or you can meet Lynn at the launch with your own vessel.  Follow us on for launch locations.
