New Year Message from Me and Ceiba :)

New Year Message from Me and Ceiba :)

It’s the last week of 2021 and I want to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate you for being courageous and powerful this year! You showed up in this community and did great work around setting boundaries, improving your health and wellbeing, stepping up your paddling, and taking on a more courageous and confident mindset. Way to go!

As you reflect on this past year I hope you take a moment to celebrate your awesomeness. You are amazing.

Sure, it wasn’t easy to do the work – it never is. Courageous women know that becoming who you want to become means that you’ll get uncomfortable. It’s part of the game of life. The discomfort and the joy go hand-in-hand. If you paddle you’ve experienced the discomfort, fear and stress at the top of a big rapid. Without that there would be no joy and exhilaration at the bottom.

As you write down your goals for 2022 be sure to break them up into small, manageable action items, and schedule them into your calendar. Small, consistent actions over time are the ticket to achieving your goals.

Thanks again for being part of this community, and I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch the following video message from me and Ceiba 🙂

I look forward to seeing you in 2022! Happy New Year!

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
