Paddle Like a Jedi
A Jedi does not ‘try’, they either ‘do’ or ‘do not’.
This course will focus on increasing your confidence and self belief on and off the water. It will look at challenging and changing the language you use, give you techniques with which to draw confidence from previous successes and teach you to use visualisation to focus your mind on positive outcomes.
Our aim is to help you do what you know you can, and paddle like a Jedi.
