Fuel For Your Body-Nutrition On Ice - with Roxanne Vogel

Join Roxanne Vogel for a discussion of current nutrition topics and how fueling your body with the right nutrients at the right time can improve performance, recovery, and athletic longevity. Learn why nutrition is as essential as any piece of gear for the outdoor athlete. Find out how your own strategy stacks up, and walk away with tips and tricks to fuel your next adventure.

Navigating Fear with- Ryan Vachon

Managing fears while we climb can is difficult. Do you ever find yourself in a scenario where you are really excited about a climb, yet as you approach the climb doubt and fear begin to wedge themselves into your thoughts? Even if you see your fears as overkill, and you want to move past them to succeed on a climb, they grind on your mind. As a consequence, when it comes time to execute, you are distracted, performance falls apart and it just ain’t fun. Working with fears to accomplish our goals is possible, but it takes practice. Join climber, Ryan Vachon, as he talks about healthy internal dialogue around unproductive thinking so that each of us can nudge closer and closer to our performance potential. Participants will be asked to play with a toolkit or set of exercises, that better set us up for big pushes in the face of fear and doubt.

Yoga For Climbers - with Mairi Humphreys

Prepare your Mind + Body with a pre-fest yoga session. A regular Yoga Asana practice can help you let go of tension and enhance your ability on Rock & Ice! Join local Yoga Teacher, Mairi Humphreys as she guides you through a 60 minute practice, linking breath and movement. – Dress in comfortable clothing & bring a yoga mat along.
