In The Beautiful Gulf Islands Near Victoria BC

Discover the kayak as a portal into an ancient wisdom of being connected to nature... and your nature. 

Designed to give you ease on your body, a connection with the water, the paddle is an adaptation. Much like the wings on a bird, or the fins on a dolphin. This new perspective is the key to exceptional kayaking skills. And a transformed experience on the water.

Integrates everything into a way of being with your kayak 

As you may know, I'm a big believer that kayaking well has a lot to do with moving your body well ...And wearing your kayak. 

In this unique retreat we focus on: 

Moving naturally with the kayak

Ancient Wisdom takes that new improved way of moving to quickly develop outstanding skills

All techniques become integrated into a fluid way of moving

Leave with a healthy, gentle on the body way of kayaking

This is what you will keep you paddling for many more years pain free

Immersive Experience

Having five days to work with you leaves lots of time for fun and relaxation, yet gives you the opportunity to quickly take your skills to the next level.

  • Continuous practice and immediate feedback, leads to getting skill quicker.

  • Without long breaks between sessions you can keep building on what you learned the previous day.

  • Creates an environment where you can dive deep into the nuances of kayaking. Most paddlers never get the ease that comes from the details.

  • Allows you to overcome challenges and see your progress in real-time, which can significantly boost confidence and motivation.

  • Fosters a sense of community and camaraderie among participants.

  • With more time spent with each participant, I can provide more personalized attention and tailored feedback, addressing your needs and style more effectively than in sporadic sessions.
