Nataly Cardona: SUP Yoga Instructor
Nataly received her 200 RYT certification in Embodyoga in Newington, CT. Her personal teaching style is lighthearted, upbeat, and therapeutic.

About Paddleworks


       Paddleworks was founded as a division of Harborside Marina in 2011 and can be found inside the main building at the marina in Clinton CT. Harborside Marina is a full service marina offering Summer & Winter Storage plus full time Service Department for all of your boating needs! Harborside also offers a full Yacht Brokerage for both new and used boats, specializing in Chris Craft and Bennington. Harborside's beautiful waterfront property is right in Clinton Harbor and is less than a mile from Historic Clinton Center. 

       Clinton Harbor is located in a protected bay nestled in behind Cedar Island and Hammonasset State Park which makes for the perfect place to launch a Stand Up Paddleboard or Kayak!

       Paddleworks offers easy access to the open waters of the Long Island Sound. There are many scenic places to paddle without ever leaving the protected waters of the Harbor between the beaches of Cedar Island, Hammonasset Nature Preserve, Hammonassett River and the Clinton Town Beach.
