Craving increased mindfulness and connection in your life? Escape the businesses and stress of an over-scheduled world and find meaningful connection in nature. Be guided beyond the crowds of Banff National Park and be surrounded by a forest wonderland.
Join us with Modern + Mindful for a full day of hiking where we pause to engage all five of our senses. We will meet as a group in Canmore at the downtown location for JK Bakery for 8:45am. With green practices in mind, we will carpool to the trailhead and experience moments of hiking silently, eating mindfully, and guided meditations. Expect to be outside until 4 pm as we take our time to enjoy our surroundings. The first two hikes are easy to moderate in difficulty and the final hike is moderate. Our focus is on reconnecting, not the physical push.

The wide open spaces found in wild places have always left Jenna feeling full of energy. From a young age she appreciated the feeling of moving her body and the satisfaction that came from self propelled activities. Always in search of an adventure she can be found anywhere but indoors!
Currently, she resides in Canmore, AB, balancing guiding and working as a physiotherapist. Hiking and backpacking fill her summer months and snowshoeing takes over in the winter. The majority of her work consists of private guiding, however hiking and backpacking trips are also provided to help you prepare to tackle the trail on your own.
