What to expect during your WOMEN'S SUMMER of ADVENTURE Day Clinic - Yakima River CANYON
Our day will begin with morning yoga, coffee & snacks on the lawn at Canyon River Ranch. Once everyone is nice and relaxed, we'll head out on a hike and trail run (groups will separate depending on your focus --- we will have a hiking guide and a trail running guide so that everyone is comfortable) on the nearby, absolutely spectacular and infamous Skyline Trail (see photos below). After seeing some of the most spectacular views in our area, we'll head to a private lake in the Yakima river canyon. Here we will help you hone your skills & build your confidence on the paddle board as we get you ready to hit the river - this is a VERY mellow river and we take beginner paddlers (and KIDS!) on it VERY frequently! After everyone is comfortable and slathered with sunscreen, we'll head up river where we will start our River SUP adventure. After 2 miles of paddling, we will pull out at Canyon River Ranch/Red's Fly Shop for a gourmet lunch at Canyon River Grill. After a great meal, we'll hop back on the boards for 6 more miles of fun on the river. Along the way, we'll practice our SUP skills, stop for snacks and drinks (and sightseeing!) and we'll even get some epic photos of you to take home and share with your friends and family.
At the end of our river tour, we'll pull out right across the road from the private lake that we were at for the morning. After a ride over in the truck, we will enjoy late afternoon yoga happy hour (think mellow stretching/yoga moves with a drink in your hand) on the lawn, lake side. After our yoga sash, we'll snack on appetizers while Shannon will go over your nutrition & personal training plans (distances vary on your personal goals --- choose from 5K-50 miler running or walk/running) and she'll answer any questions you may have.
A Glance at our WOMEN'S SUMMER of ADVENTURE weekend retreats --- LAKE CHELAN
Our next weekend retreat is in beautiful Lake Chelan, WA! We'll all meet Friday evening for dinner & our meet & greet - to go over our weekend plans and to have a fun eve together in a fun town. Saturday morning we'll meet for coffee, snacks & yoga to greet the day. Then we'll head to the trail for some miles of smiles. We'll have 2 groups - a hiking group and a trail running/hiking group. Don't worry about being "slow"... because this guided tour is meant to be fun and we'll be stopping for snacks and photos as much as people want. This isn't a race! :)
After our morning on the trail, we'll have a delicious & wholesome picnic lunch before we all head to the water for some learning and fun on the paddle boards. Whether you are a true beginner or a seasoned paddler, we will have some tips and skill-building drills for each and every one of you. And if you are ready to learn more advanced stances & paddle techniques for river and ocean paddling, we've got you covered there as well!
Happy hour will be calling our names by now, so we will heed it's call. During drinks and appetizers, Shannon will go over all of your training plans (5k-50 mile... you choose the distance!) - including cardio, strength & macro/nutrition that you can do at home to get on track to reach your goals. You are on your own for the rest of the eve to explore town and enjoy a night in one of Washington's favorite summer spots.
Sunday morning we'll meet again for coffee, snacks and yoga - and after we are all fueled and ready for adventure, we'll grab our mountain bikes and head to the grass to hone our skills and confidence. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced rider, we'll have tips and skill-building drills for you to work on at home and on the trail. After our skills sesh, we'll head to the trail for a late morning ride on some flowy, fun trails that we know you'll love.
Another scrumptious picnic lunch will await us after the ride - along with some refreshing "happy hour" beverages to celebrate the end of our weekend together.
