Creek Week! Up Your Class IV Game!

We are proud to offer the only Class IV Creek Week for women in the world!  Scientific evidence shows that women experience a different stress response than men* in challenging situations, leading women to seek out strong support systems (especially with other women).  This science points to why womens clinics are so powerful, and why our creek week is a powerful tool for building creeking confidence and skills. Join us in April 2018!


Camp Crystal Kai

Camp Crystal Kai is a health and wellness stand-up paddleboard retreat on North Carolina’s Crystal Coast. As a participant, you will experience an all-inclusive, week-long or half-week adventure in one of the Southeast’s premier vacation destinations. Paddle through paradise along 85 miles of gorgeous coastline with inspiration, relaxation, connection and fun as our goals!


If you want more of any of the above in your life then you’ve come to the right place. My coaching and programming walks you through creating power through self-awareness – getting clear on the impact your choices and actions have on your health, wellbeing and performance. When you have greater self-awareness you make powerful choices.

I’ve got the structure to help you experience freedom through discipline. That’s right, true freedom is experienced through discipline. I know it sounds crazy, but doing whatever you want whenever you want isn’t freedom, it’s actually bondage to your compulsions. Mind Body Paddle is all about living consciously!

Do you only feel joyful and free when you’re on your favorite adventure like kayaking or SUPing, biking or hiking? That’s only a few hours a day or a week! How are you feeling the rest of the time? What if you could bring that joy and freedom into all aspects of your life!? How would you feel then? Or, maybe you want to add adventure into your life? I’ve got life changing adventure programming for you!

It’s time for for more power, freedom and adventure in your life and I’m here to help you achieve that! I look forward to working with you. ~ Anna
