Paddle Strong Class is designed for outdoor enthusiasts who seek a unique, inspiring workout on the water. Paddle Strong takes place amongst the beautiful nature, on the calm waters as you find your flow at various locations in the Portland area. Experience a fresh take on stretching variations and modifications so everyone can work at their own ability level. Paddle Strong consists of a quick introduction of equipment and water safety, followed by a warm-up paddle on the river. We, then anchor our boards close for instruction. We practice slow stretches and some core strength work. We wind down while listening to the birds sing and a blissful float that will quiet your mind and lift your spirit. Not only is Paddle Strong filled with mindful meditation that allows you to feel connected…strong…and bonded, but it is known to sometimes be a spiritual experience too. There seems to be a common theme with Paddle Strong, a group of women searching for their tribe, like minded women with shared passions. A social outing of sorts. Come share your energy and love. In the name of well-being, love and sisterhood, we can all agree that this class may cultivate a strong paddling community.
I have such a deep love for the outdoor lifestyle in Oregon. With sailing, hiking, yoga & paddling at the top of my list. I have always tended to gravitate to activities on the water and I'm thrilled to energetically share this love with other like minded people. I'm the owner of Base Camp Paddle Boards and Adventures, certified with WPA (World Paddle Association) and Paddle Into Fitness and PIF SUP Yoga. I instruct classes, lead tours, rentals, coordinate special events. As a Paddle Into Fitness Ambassador, I offer SUP lessons, SUP Paddle Strong Fitness classes, many other adventures.
