What you'll do
We will meet in the middle of Banff at the beautiful Dance for Joy movement studio. After signing the waiver, I will lead you through my 60 minute Yoga for Skiers class which is specifically designed to get your body finely tuned for the ski adventure ahead. Then we will take a short shuttle ride up to Mount Norquay and get geared up in the Cascade Lodge. I will lay out the itinerary and what to expect from the day. We will head out onto the mountain for a 2 hour ski session. Drawing on my expertises as a Ski Instructor, local and flow coach, I will show you unique terrain on the mountain that challenges you to explore outside your comfort zone. I will safely guide you through that exhilarating experience and teach you how to tap into flow. We will break for a 1 hr. lunch at the Cliff House Bistro on the second floor of the beautiful exposed timber framed lodge. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is charming. You will see why we call Norquay the locals mountain. In the afternoon we will head back out on the mountain for another 2 hour session. Weather permitting, we will make our way up the North American Chairlift to the iconic Cliffhouse viewing platform. Some of the best photos in Banff National Park come from this amazing spot. The runs down from Cliffhouse are some of the most challenging on the mountain making for awesome bragging rights.
I have been living in Canmore the last 10 years, and I love it!. Living in this little piece of paradise with endless possibilities is an amazing gift. I hold the highest level qualification in the Canadian Ski Instructor Alliance (Level 4) and have taught professionally for 18 season. I am a 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher, with ten years teaching experience, and I have pioneered a Yoga for Snow Sports training method. I also hold a BA in Psychology and extensive study in the science of flow state as it pertains to sport. I create experiences in the mountains that blend wellness, skiing and flow.
We will take the free return trip Norquay Shuttle From Banff Park Lodge to get to and from the resort.
