Adventure Retreats

It’s time to do something fun for yourself.

(Re)discover who you are on an empowering adventure with like-minded women in a beautiful place.

Hello, I’m Anna.

My passion is helping women re-ignite their spark for life.

Twenty five years ago I was on-track to follow in my father’s footsteps and pursue a career in law, until I got a summer job working in the kitchen of a whitewater rafting company.

That summer I discovered my spark and it changed me forever. I’ve learned that choosing to forge my own unique path is hard, AND exceptionally rewarding.

If you’re ready to say yes to your spark, go on new adventures you’ve wanted to try for a long time, or finally put your health and wellbeing first, I’m here for you.

I’m an award winning paddling coach, author, former pro-athlete, and certified Ayurveda health coach, and I can’t wait to help you become who you dream of being in mind, body and adventure.

The Bow Draw: Not a turning stroke

Do you think that the bow draw is a turning stroke? Think again. In my experience as an instructor and Instructor Trainer, the bow draw is the most misunderstood and misused stroke in whitewater kayaking. It’s so misused that I take it away from participants during Creek Week. I tell them that they’re not allowed
