Yoga and hiking are great activities to keep our minds and bodies active and engaged, especially for those of us in the Bay Area - where there is no shortage of Yoga classes and hiking trails. Please join Sara for an informative and fun afternoon of yoga for hikers.
First half of class will focus on poses to help you feel more agile and fit on the trail - special attention will be given to balance, core and strengthening. Second half of the class will focus on poses to help you stretch, recover and renew after a hike.
For those interested in hiking that morning, Sara will meet fellow hikers for a 2-3 hour hike at 9am at the Skyline Gate at Redwood Regional Park (just up the hill from Mt. Yoga).
