Q&A with Rhiannon, Teacher

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

The idea is to enjoy the beauty of nature while connecting to the beauty within?bliss in every moment.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

No. The idea is to love where you are and who you are. Also, it's fun to learn yoga on a paddleboard. Build confidence and obtain a new style if you have already practiced yoga. Love yourself.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

I want everyone to feel comfortable with coming to enjoy paddle yoga. [We cater to patrons] from beginner to advanced. It can also be a workout. Also, people will ask about what to wear: yoga clothes and a change of clothes, if they want. It's okay to fall in.

After you hike a 10-mile descent through Hualapai Canyon—past the Supai Village and breathtaking ancient geological formations—you arrive at Havasu Falls. Follow the sound of the water and you’ll find the falls, where rapids cascade 100 feet to a dazzlingly blue-green, travertine pool below. It’s one of the world's most remote and beautiful swimming holes, and Pygmy Guides’ backpacking guides, who are medically trained as wilderness first responders or wilderness EMTs, lead groups there regularly.

Havasu Falls is just one of many destinations that you can explore with Pygmy Guides, a company that was founded by people who have spent more than 10 years living in and exploring Grand Canyon National Park. They lead groups to hike below the rim to see ancient rock art, hidden fossils, and california condors, walking in the footsteps of horse thieves on the Tanner Trail or along routes on the Bright Angel Trail once tread by ancestral Pueblo peoples. At Dripping Springs, water drips from the roof of a sandstone alcove so you can dilute Gatorade that tastes too sweet.

Sightseers who prefer the comfort of a plush SUV can see the canyon's expansive vistas through high-powered telescopes during day tours. Each all-inclusive trip includes park fees and gourmet meals and is limited to small groups for comfort and convenience.

Like the giant fan often strapped to his back, Ryan Shaw has pushed the world of paragliding to new heights. The pilot has set multiple world records for speed and max altitude on paragliders: lightweight, foot-launched aircrafts with harnesses suspended beneath fabric wings, powered only by a small tank of gas and a sense of adventure. Mr. Shaw soars hundreds if not thousands of feet above Arizona and its sprawling deserts, occasionally floating back down to dip his toes in some of the state's tranquil waters. Though the aircraft's engine is small, these adventures often last two to three hours, or the entire length of a housefly's childhood.

Paradrenalin is Mr. Shaw's way of sharing this exhilarating experience with others. Along with his fellow instructors, he takes individuals on tandem flights high above the desert, giving them ample time to take photos or try the controls for themselves. From there, Paradrenalin's USPPA-certified training school can turn new fliers into expert pilots who can buy or rent Paradrenalin's powered paragliders.

The certified instructors at Go Stand Up Paddle propagate their passion for serenely skimming the waters during paddleboard lessons for first-time paddlers to aspiring paddleboard racers. The classes range in subject matter from basic skills to prodding aside herds of lake monsters to fitness—incorporating flexibility, cardio, and core-strength exercises into the low-impact, full-body sport. The teachers also lead parties to introduce groups to paddleboarding and help them to celebrate a special occasion, and Paddleboard Adventures, in which they supply the gear, know-how, and midday meal necessary to fuel paddlboarding excursions. Before setting onto the gentle body of water, athletes can rent a board or build their own out of popsicle sticks.

Sailboat Shop proprietor Tom Errickson first learned to sail at age 11, sparking a love for boating that turned into his life's work. After years of repairing sailboats and plying the waves of sometimes frigid Lake Michigan, Errickson returned to Arizona and assembled a crew of seasoned instructors to teach clients useful sailing skills through ASA-certified classes. By spending three relaxing hours on a 30-foot sloop during a sunset cruise, or learning the ropes during a keelboating class, Arizonans can experience the rare pleasure of sailing in the middle of the desert. Aspiring mariners can purchase craft ranging from an inflatable dinghy to a brand-new Catalina swing-keel boat, or charter a craft and experienced skipper for a memorable party on the water.

When participants at The Retro Run 5K take their marks, they're more likely to be taken for Cyndi Lauper than a marathon runner. That's because the 3-mile run eschews the put-ons of most modern races: there are no times collected, and those with the best '60s, '70s, or '80s costumes are the ones destined to win the big prize—in the post-race costume competition, anyway. Neon spandex, fanny packs, and fingerless gloves are a hot choice among racers, but even if you're just there in a T-shirt and shorts, the staff will hook you up with a free pair of sunglasses to help you look the part. After the race, runners, walkers, and even pets celebrate with an '80s-themed festival complete with top party music, a costume contest, and pyramid teams reenacting the fall of the Berlin Wall.
