Canoeing is as much a state of mind as it is a partnership between boat, paddler and the ever moving currents of a favorite river. Join Carole Westwood as she explores the relationship of boat control and mindfulness in pursuit of maximizing the whole river running experience.
By maintaining a moment to moment awareness of thoughts, feelings and the surrounding environment, Carole helps you hone in on establishing a higher level of comfort on the water, in your boat and within a group. Learn strategies for river running calmly, in focus, and by using refined paddling skills and water effectively.
The course is geared to experienced novices and intermediate Solo Canoeists. Specialized sessions focus on developing control and comfort on the water, in the boat, and in the mind. Topics include: calming strategies, swimming rapids comfortably, using efficient strokes and water features, navigating in a calm controlled manner, choosing a paddling group, and the importance of feeling safe. Great for anyone who wants to up their skill level with a more holistic approach.
