Private Rolling Instruction:

Get your roll and your confidence back on track!  Anna assesses your roll and gets to the root of what’s not working. She uses video review as she guides your roll back to optimum technique and functionality. From November – March Anna can coach you at the UNCA pool sessions on Wed evenings in Asheville or at your private indoor pool (if you have one).

Cost for Private Rolling Instruction:

Only available in the fall/winter months during pool session hours.


  • 1 hour of one-on-one coaching with Anna.
  • Video review during the class.
  • Video review with voice over sent to you after the session so you can refer back to it.
  • Follow up questions via email or text

“Within the space of the one-hour lesson, Anna had analyzed where I was going wrong, coached me through correcting the mechanics, explained helpful visualizations to get me picturing what my body needed to do, and I was rolling. It was incredible! The time I spent with her in the lesson was worth every penny, and more.” – Helene, Asheville, NC
