SUP Yoga Teacher Training at Kripalu

Join Anna, author of Yoga for Paddling, international paddling instructor and 500 RYT for exceptional teaching and leadership development at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in MA. Few, if any SUP yoga teachers have the depth of experience that Anna has gathered over the last twenty plus years of professional paddling and dedicated yoga practice. Kripalu is one of the best known yoga retreat centers in the US, providing a serene and healthy environment for learning, relaxing and cultivating self-awareness.

Performance Coaching with Anna

‘Live in possibility’ is one of my mottos – even when you’re standing in the rain. Deep down do you feel like you have a lot more potential than what you’re currently expressing in life? Perhaps you’re being hard on yourself for not expressing that potential to it’s fullest, or maybe the confidence to do it doesn’t feel present.

My performance coaching on (SUP/ww kayak) and off (lifestyle, diet, mental game) will help you take your skills and confidence to the next level, and empower you to express your full potential in every moment.

Call 828.505.2782 to speak with me about designing a coaching program tailored to your needs. Or use the contact us form on the site and send me an email. Private coaching available all summer and fall, and can be done remotely!


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
