Sarah Hrdlicka

LaHave, Nova Scotia

While Sarah has always loved the outdoors, she didn’t consider a career outside until she found herself taking a break from urban planning to run a ship-based yoga program in Antarctica. Inspired by the transformative potential of combining exceptional wilderness experiences with yoga & meditation, she decided to continue down this unexpected and wild garden path. This has led her on many great paddling adventures, from Patagonia to Newfoundland. 

As co-founder of Cape LaHave Adventures, you’ll find her on the water guiding & instructing, putting together next year’s brochure or out teaching yoga on a remote island beach. Sarah is Paddle Canada Instructor for sea kayaking & SUP (Advanced Flatwater, Touring and River), and a 500hr Advanced Yoga Instructor. She has served as the director of Stand-Up Paddleboard Instruction for Canoe Kayak Nova Scotia. Sarah loves meeting new people and helping them unplug, be present and experience beautiful places by water.
