Paddle Whitewater with Confidence

Learn mental agility mastery.

My private instruction helps you say no to old habit patterns that are holding your back, and yes to mental agility and whitewater paddling skills that cause breakthroughs in your kayaking.

Stop letting fear and doubt be in charge of you

If you’re stuck in a rut, feeling unsupported by your peers, doubting your skills, or overwhelmed with anxiety whenever you take to the water, I can help.

You deserve to paddle from a place of freedom and power, not fear.

Transform your fear into smooth lines and effortless paddling

Nothing changes until you gain the knowledge and take action to replace your old habit patterns.

Self doubt is something I’ve experienced too

I’m passionate about empowering women because I also struggle with self-doubt and fear on the water.

Over the last 30 years, I’ve developed strategies that have helped me find my own courage and confidence over and over again. Together we'll unleash your confidence and uplevel your skills.

“Private instruction with Anna let me go at my own pace, it was always affirming and I always felt like I had succeeded at the end of the day, even if I swam.”

Full Day of Private Instruction

This is YOUR day! During our 30 minute pre-day coaching call we’ll decide what river run will be best to help you meet your goals. My go-to river for private whitewater kayak instruction is Section 9 of the French Broad. I also offer private instruction on other rivers in the Asheville area, including the Green and Big Laurel.

We’ll meet between 9 and 10 am, set shuttle, paddle and have lunch together on the river.  We’ll finish up by 4 pm.

I’ll be taking video of you throughout the day, and playing it back to you in real-time when appropriate for learning. At the end of the day you’ll have new skills and takeaways to practice.

The week following your day I’ll send you a short, edited video of you paddling with voice over instruction so you can remember, revisit and reflect on what you’re learning.

A few weeks after our day together we’ll meet again for a second 30 minute coaching call that will help you address any challenges, breakdowns and breakthroughs that you encountered.

Come as you are, ready for big breakthroughs

You’re worth it

Does paddling bring you joy? Then it’s 100% worth the investment.

How you approach the challenges in your whitewater paddling is how you approach challenges in ALL areas of your life.

Investing in a breakthrough in your courage and confidence on the water is investing in your courage and confidence in ALL areas of your life. 

Stop spinning your wheels trying to get tips from your buddies to end up perpetually stuck in your old habit pattern ruts.

“Anna met me where I was in my progression and gave me the kind of precision feedback I needed to successfully, consistently and reliably roll the boat. I found her continued feedback and support after our pool session equally helpful.”
