Lake Michigan Paddle Adventure
The water of Lake Michigan surrounding Leelanau County’s Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is crystal clear. Many come to Leelanau county to gaze out at the beauty of Lake Michigan from atop the Dunes, but few witness the amazing view of the dunes and lakeshore from out on the open water. During our fun weekend in the sun, we will venture out onto Lake Michigan via stand up paddle boards. The perfect vessel for gazing down into crystal clear water. Depending on wind and weather conditions our adventure can vary between paddling to snorkel and explore a local shipwrecks, putting in and paddling along the coastline with the wind at our backs and ending at a local beach to sunbathe and enjoy a picnic lunch, or if the wind is pumping and the you have a real sense of adventure a Great Lakes surf lesson could even be in store! But don’t fear, you’ll be in good hands. Leda is a professional paddler and has taught well over 700 people SUP. She has also been an surfer of the Great Lake for the last 15 years. Other possible SUP adventures include the many secluded and hidden lakes in the area that do not allow motorized boats, and have an abundance of wildlife to view. The opportunities for adventure are endless!
Yogic Dance Workshop
“Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” — B.K.S. Iyengar
Yoga dance invites you to lose yourself and find yourself at the same time. Yoga Dance fulfills the innate expressive potential of traditional Vinyasa Flows (sequences linking breath to movement). Together we will fall into fluidity as we flow through a choreographed sequence of yoga postures to music that moves the soul. The choreographed sequences will be taught by 500 hr RYT Andrea Kern who recently returned from studies in Thailand, where she received 50 hrs of training in Yoga Dance/Choreography by Nikki Durrant. All levels are welcome and no prior dance experience is needed. All that is required is a willingness to let go of fear, and openness to learning something new, and an eagerness to move, to be moved, by flowing in a way that feels sublimely good and beyond liberating!
Simply arrive, breathe, move, and let your mind dance away with your body.
-open to ALL levels (beginners welcome)
-no previous SUP experience required
-all activities are OPTIONAL
