yoga hikes STL brings like-minded souls together to connect with nature while deepening our understanding of ourselves.
Begin your Yoga Hike experience with a lesson on the yoga tradition that you'll then be encouraged to reflect on and integrate into your hike and Yoga Asana practice.
On your hike, take in the overwhelming beauty of remnant prairies, caves, old growth forests and woodlands. Enjoy the soothing sounds of nature; the gentle wind through the trees, the birds, the trickle of one of Missouri's nearby creeks or springs. You'll be encouraged to literally smell the roses and feel the earth under your feet.
While each itinerary is slightly different, at the most opportune time you'll take part in a Yoga Asana practice that converges the Ancient Eastern traditions, and the modern Western perspectives. Expect to enjoy a class that is physically stimulating while being safe, and restorative and still being coherent with the wisdom that has come down through the ages.
