“Anna has sold me on Yoga for Paddling for sure. I need to balance my body to keep paddling into my sixties and Yoga for Paddling provides clear and well-written information to help me accomplish that.” –Sean Morley, accomplished coach, expedition and surf kayaker who completed the first solo circumnavigation of the UK and Ireland by sea kayak in 2004
Yoga for Paddling is a visual, instructional guide designed to walk readers through 30 -35 yoga poses that are effective in stretching the muscles that paddlers use most, and strengthening the muscles that they use least. The book includes chapters on anatomy and alignment principles specific to the movements of paddling for kayakers, canoeists, and SUPers, and includes tips on proper paddling technique, performance focus, relaxation, and short stories about paddling injuries healed via yoga. One to three photos demonstrate each pose, with clear, concise text on how to get into and hold the poses.
“Anna has been a huge mentor for me and pushes every human to be the best human they can be. Yoga for Paddling is a great addition to paddlers’ libraries for helping to reduce the aches and pains of everyday life and kayaking. Keep this book close by both on your paddling trips and at home.” —Adriene Levknecht, Canoe and Kayak magazine’s 2016 Female Paddler of the Year, seven-time Green River Race Champion and Bronze Medalist at the 2013 World Freestyle Championships
“Yoga for Paddling has inspired me to bring more balance to my body by making time for yoga practice in my fitness routine. Anna’s book provides helpful information and guidance to help me get started and develop an effective practice.” —Travis Grant, two-time Molokai to Oahu SUP Champion, Baddle of the Paddle SUP long distance champion and accomplished outrigger and SUP racer, surfer, and paddler
