“Paddle and “Pamper” is a unique kayaking course, developed specifically for women, by Wet Planet instructor and Jackson Kayak Team Member, Heather Herbeck. This program focuses on developing kayaking skills in ways that women benefit the most. During these “P & P” clinics, we work on the technique and finesse to paddle successfully down the river, and not depend on “brute” strength. We get out frequently to “scout” and analyze whitewater, so that you learn how to read rapids and you don’t have to be the one “following everyone else’s line”. Sometimes women think too much about how kayaking is “scary”, so the Wet Planet staff will provide the “fun” component as we paddle down the river. This will remind you that kayaking is all about having “fun”. These are just a few of the unique ways that the “P & P” clinics help women to develop into safe and confident boaters. Here’s the best part about the March clinic . . . it’s in Costa Rica! Read on . . .
This is a very special “P & P”. We are headed to warm weather and warm water so you can learn in an environment that is more relaxing and unique.
Aside from the skill and technique portion of this Costa Rica “P & P”, we will focus on mind and body as well. As women, it is a natural tendency for us to be the one taking care of everyone and everything else. So, in this course, let the Wet Planet staff take care of you . . .We will have morning and evening sessions of yoga and fitness. Some mornings, we will wake up to an invigorating yoga/fitness session, while other days we will end with a relaxing yoga/fitness session. Heather Herbeck, certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor will lead this component of the day as well.
The “Pamper” portion of this course will be a combination of the “spa” treatments provided by some of the lodging facilities and/or some “satin hands and feet” treatments provided by Mary Kay Cosmetics.
