Stuck to Summit: Blazing Your Own Trail
Do you sometimes feel like you are just, ‘going through the motions’? Does it seem like every week is just a means to an end? This workshop is designed for anybody who is looking for ‘more’ in life, but isn’t sure exactly where to start, or somebody who knows where they want to go, but is feeling unsure of the steps to make it happen. Maybe you have vague ideas of what you want your life to look like - but there are so many ‘unknowns’ and ‘don’t know hows’ getting in your way… In this workshop we will begin to learn the art of deliberately creating your own life. Through tangible steps and a pragmatic process, you will learn the way to start allowing (not forcing) your life to fall into place. It’s time to stop living life on auto-pilot and time to start thriving.
About Our Instructor: Anastasia Allison
Anastasia Allison is a former park ranger and police officer turned full-time entrepreneur after a near fatal car accident became the catalyst for her to pursue her dream of living an adventure-inspired life. A life long classically trained violinist, Anastasia is the violinist for a nationally acclaimed duo called The Musical Mountaineers. Together with her partner Rose Freeman, they carry a violin and a piano (keyboard) into the backcountry for unannounced sunrise concerts.
Inspired by her obsession for the wilderness and her passion for Leave No Trace ethics, Anastasia is also the inventor and founder of a company called Kula Cloth™, which is the very first of its kind - an antimicrobial pee cloth for anybody who squats when they pee. Since the company launched in July 2018, Kula Cloths™ have been shipped to every state and all over the world. The Kula Cloth™ has been featured by Backpacker Magazine, Outside Magazine, The Dyrt, Treehugger.com, Adventure Journal, the She Explores Podcast, and by the Washington Trails Association Magazine.
In addition to her career as an entrepreneur, Anastasia is also a Wilderness First Responder and has been a volunteer backpacking instructor with Washington Outdoor Women for nearly 10 years. She is the Seattle Trail Scout and Gear Tester for Backpacker Magazine, and she hosts the Inspired Adventurepreneur Podcast on iTunes. Anastasia also has a private coaching practice for aspiring adventurepreneurs and runs a group coaching program called 'Stuck to Summit'.
She lives near Seattle with her husband Aaron, who plays the ukulele, and their two cats, Niko and Cinder. When they aren't performing music together, they try to spend as much time as possible in the backcountry in a tent.
