August 23- 26th, join us for our first annual Ladies Shred Camp

 
Do you feel a strong pull to be on the water? Feminine energy is directly related to the water element. It’s fluid, receptive quality is calming, adaptive and nourishing. It’s strong, yet forgiving and powerful, yet graceful. It cultivates a sense of peace within us. 

Join Ella and Leda, two of Lake Michigan’s most passionate female surfers this summer for a long weekend of empowerment through yoga, surfing and SUP on Lake Michigan. Start your mornings with an awakening SUP yoga practice. Spend your afternoons taking your surf and SUP skills to the next level, and end each day with a relaxing yoga session on land. Be apart of a community of women who have a thirst for adventure.

About Leda: Ever since catching her first wave on the Great Lakes in 2003, Leda has dedicated her life to being on the water. Her mission is to empower women through yoga and board sports. As one of Michigan’s most experience SUP yoga teachers, she finds SUP yoga is the perfect blend of her love of yoga and the water. She currently splits her time between paddling downwind and surfing on the Great Lakes, paddling down whitewater and surfing river waves in Colorado, and leading yoga and surf retreats around the globe. 

 

About Ella: Daughter of the owners of Sleeping Bear Surf & Kayak, Ella has grown up along the shores of Lake Michigan, surfing, paddling and indulging in the abundance that is the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Surfing is her passion: the way she expresses herself, challenges herself, and where she feels most at home. She is also an avid paddler, and water-woman on multiple fronts. When she is not seeking waves south of the border, she is at home in Northern Michigan teaching all walks of Earth how to surf as she has for the last five years. She also runs SBX Waterman Camp for kids too. Her greatest joy comes from sharing her passion with others.
