Stand Up Paddleboarding in the Mountains

Stand Up Paddleboarding in the Mountains

“A perfect weekend with an incredible teacher. Thank you for your patience, guidance and laughter Anna Levesque!” – Jen B, Asheville

“I am hooked and can’t wait to SUP again! Thank you Anna for such a lovely experience.” – Paula, WV

“I couldn’t ask for a better experience.” – Kellie, Nashville

I’ll just let those testimonials speak for themselves. It was a great weekend full of yoga, community, relaxation, paddling and fun!

Paula was concerned about her balance on the first morning, feeling wobbly on the board as we learned basic strokes and concepts on the lake. Her legs were shaking and I assured her that her balance would improve and her comfort on the board increase with experience.

After a SUP yoga class on the lake she was already feeling more comfortable and the shakiness in her legs was beginning to subside. By the second day she was paddling upstream against the current in the river and surfing waves! The transformation and confidence was incredible. Stand up paddleboarding teaches us so much about the power through self-awareness and freedom through discipline and perseverance (not giving up just because it’s difficult at first!).

Paula really embodied power, freedom and adventure all weekend. She brought her two daughters along with her and fun was had by the whole family! Her friend Kellie had talked all of them into joining in the first place as she has been bitten by he SUP bug for awhile. Meghan and Jen from the Asheville area rounded out the group.

Thank you ladies for an amazing experience!!

I’ll be putting more Mountain SUP Adventures on the calendar for 2019 and maybe even the fall of 2018. Stay tuned and join us!

Hard moves in easy water for a powerful mindset

You may think you know what practicing hard moves in easy water means, and I bet you don’t think of it as paddling the Narrows of the Green (a Class IV-V section). Earlier this month I paddled into the Narrows of the Green to watch Green Race. For those of you unfamiliar with the race,
