Mindful Kayaking

At this event, we will use various mindfulness techniques to fully embrace our sensory experience on the water. We will teach you some kayaking basics and then head out for a mindful adventure on the Saint-Lawrence River. During our kayak, we will guide you through various mindfulness practices on the water.

Practical Information

In the case of rain or other poor weather, the event will be rescheduled. If you are not available on the new date, you will receive a full refund.


  • Registering here for the event reserves you a kayak. You do not need to rent separately.

  • If you are bringing your own kayak (and not renting a kayak from NAVI), please register on the website for a $15 fee. A kayak will not be provided for you in this case. Be sure to bring your own life jacket/PFD and paddle.

  • Kayaks are all single-person.

  • Please arrive at 10:30am and plan to be on the water around 11am until 1pm.

  • Bear in mind that you kayak at your own risk. I am not a kayaking expert nor a lifeguard.

  • We will show you some basics but it is up to you to stay safe.

  • We also recommend that you bring a bottle of water, sunscreen, and hat to keep the sun off your head.

  • Water will probably drip onto you from your paddle so expect to get wet.

TRANSPORTATION: the meeting place is accessible by public transport (metro and bus).
