Mind Body Paddle Community

Have you been looking for a like-minded group of women who love paddling and adventure? Who are committed to lifting themselves and others up when it comes to mental agility, confidence and courage? A community ready to support your health in mind, body and paddling?

If so, you’ve landed in the right place!

In the Mind Body Paddle Community you’ll meet new people, learn and share strategies for courage and confidence, up-leveling your paddling skills (and your teaching skills if you’re an instructor), setting boundaries, and cultivating relationship with the water and each other. You’ll also receive and share advice on healthy eating, yoga for paddling, morning routines and habits that support you in being strong, courageous and healthy (on and off the water).

We currently have over 130 women introducing themselves, sharing around paddling and health, offering advice, asking questions and engaging with eachother; each person has unique lived experience, insights and abilities, allowing us to co-create this amazing community together!

Once per quarter (4 times per year in September, December, March and June) you’re invited to a 60 minute zoom call with me where I’ll do a short lesson on a topic brought forward by you, the community. There will be plenty of time for rich discussion and sharing.

This is a collaborative community. When you join you have the power to both contribute and benefit deeply.

I’ve really enjoyed everything so far!! Thanks Anna!!


The Mind Body Paddle Community is a year-long, renewable membership.

It includes membership in a private FB group, 4 group zoom calls with me per year, consistent curated content and strategies for paddling technique, mental agility, healthy habits, yoga for paddling and setting boundaries. You’ll also exclusively get the recordings for any webinars that I lead throughout the year.

Scary stories and how to face them

Creek Week is coming up next week, and inevitably the question of scary river stories and how to process them will be a topic of conversation. I remember being on the banks of the White Nile River in Uganda scouting the Class V rapid called Itanda. At the time there hadn’t yet been a successful

How to paddle with fewer strokes

Do you feel like you paddle hard and still miss lines on the river? The problem may be that you’re paddling too much. Paddling is sometimes overemphasized in instruction causing loss of control and unnecessary energy expenditure. A few years ago I posted this video of me running one of my favorite rapids: Both my

How to uplevel your boof

Creek Week is almost here, and I’m excited to work with the group to uplevel their boof, one of my favorite whitewater kayaking skills. Not only is boofing fun, but it’s also a key technique that allows you to work with rocks instead of being afraid of them. Cultivating a working relationship with rocks goes
