WHETHER YOU ARE BRAND NEW TO ROCK CLIMBING OR HAVE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, OUR ROCK CLIMBING AND YOGA RETREAT IS AN INCREDIBLY LIFE GIVING EXPERIENCE. AFTER THREE SEASONS OF HOSTING THESE EVENTS in the pacific Northwest WE HAVE WITNESSED THE BARRIERS THAT CAN BE BROKEN AND THE COMMUNITY THAT CAN BE FORMED IN THE PRESENCE OF INCREDIBLE WOMEN. We are excited to offer this experience on the east coast.
Guiding will be available for a wide variety of skill levels, taught by AMGA instructors Savannah Manning and Brooke Hadden. Our group of women will be split up depending on experience.
Intro instruction designed for those who have never climbed before
Intermediate instruction for climbers wanting to climb in the 5.6-5.9 range (best for those who have never climbed outside)
Advanced for climbers wanting to join our guides to climb routes 5.10-5.11a/b
Meet your guides
During university, Savannah was introduced to rock climbing and was immediately hooked. From bouldering to big walls she has accomplished objectives all over North America. Turning her passion into a career she brought the SMM mission to the East Coast to bring more opportunities for women in climbing. Her contagious enthusiasm will have you captivated by the outdoors and have you sucked into the sport of rock climbing. She’s also a fan of all things Carl Sagan so space nerds delight.
Brooke has been playing and climbing in Chattanooga and the Southeastern region for 12 years. She was most recently based out of St. George, Utah for 3 years, where she worked as a Wilderness Field Instructor and gained experience on desert sandstone, limestone, and granite. She was drawn back to the Southeast to guide with She Moves Mountains and help operate a sustainable homestead farm in Trenton, Ga, where she cultivates and chefs her own Farm to Table produce. Though she misses telemark skiing in the Wasatch and romping up alpine granite, the sweet southern sandstone has her heart.
Yoga will be offered four times during the retreat by Peace.Strength.Yoga
Rock climber, yogi, and owner of PSY- Kaylee Frano, is a 500 hour certified yoga teacher with over 4000 hours of teacher training. We are excited to have her start our mornings out with one-hour long yoga sessions each day.
Healthy eating is imperative to a healthy life and at our retreat we make it a priority to provide the best tasting food with the highest quality of ingredients.
Over the weekend our chef Brooke will cook breakfast and dinner, providing alternatives for anyone with dietary restrictions. We’re partnering with local companies and farms like Land to Table and Nourish Point to provide not only high quality but sustainably sourced ingredients.
And dessert. We firmly believe that dessert is essential to a happy life.
