So close to home are a myriad of beautiful and accessible rivers and lakes waiting to be explored. The practice of yoga offers many benefits, from increased flexibility and strength to a deeper connection with the natural beauty around us. It is therefore a natural fit to combine paddling with yoga. Mary Lou's knowledge and training both as a yoga instructor and paddler combine to create a higher awareness of all muscles involved during paddling; developing strength, poise and a more centered approach to the whole paddling experience, both on land and in the water.

Mary Lou discovered a healthy active lifestyle can become part of all our lives when fitness itself is made fun and accessible. She strives to inspire that sense of adventure in each class she teaches. View current event calendar for upcoming trips and events.
