Strengthen your mind body paddle connection!

Mountain SUP Adventure

A weekend adventure exploring Asheville, NC and surrounding area via stand up paddleboard!  We’ll develop and refine our paddling skills on flatwater and moving water as we meander through the River Arts District and the Biltmore sections of the French Broad River. SUP yoga gives us an opportunity to connect with nature and take a pause from our busy lives to remember what is important. Fun, adventurous and empowering – the water trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains await you! June 9th and 10th!

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

"Anna taught me how to create powerful digestion through Ayurveda. I think of it as 'yoga for my belly.' Once I hit 35, my digestion really weakened and Ayurvedic teas, tips and tranquility teachings help me create a total stress resilient lifestyle (& stomach) ... I'm deeply grateful." -  Michelle Tennant, Age 47, Flat Rock, NC, Small Business Owner
