Why is an all-woman river rafting adventure so awesome? Let us count the ways.
1. Spending time with other women means you can relax, let go, and totally be yourself!
2. You don’t yoga? It’s all good—practicing poses in a group of women is very non-threatening. Holding in any stomach pooch you might have is banned!
3. Laughter between women is hearty, expansive, and just plain fun. There’s always a lot of beautiful healing laughter on all-women’s trips. Oh, hysterical belly laughs are pretty common, too.
4. Women can hold a very safe space for one another, both emotionally and physically. A river rafting adventure can have that added comfort of sanctuary when all your co-adventurers are also female.
5. Let’s face it, women still do a lot of the work around home. On the river, someone else cooks and cleans up. Seriously, how cool is that?
