MOUNTAIN JOURNEY

Guided beginner-intermediate yoga, hiking and meditation surrounded by nature.

You will drive south along the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway to get to this location. We’ll hike through a bit of forest and then come to an overlook where we’ll practice seated or walking meditation. We’ll hike a bit more until we reach the grassy mountain balds, where we’ll flow through 60-90 minutes of yoga surrounded by panoramic mountain views before hiking back down to the parking area.

You can bring your own yoga mat or borrow one of ours plus we'll take pictures for FREE!

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early. We'll meet at the start of the Art Loeb Trail which starts on the right side of FR 816; look for a small vertical trailhead marker. Total trail length is 1-2 miles roundtrip with a bit of an incline on the way up. There area public restrooms to use before or after the class here in the parking lot at the end of the road.

Afterwards: Meander back towards town and enjoy some of the lookout points along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Sam Knob hike also starts close to here at the parking lot at the endt. If you want to explore a bit more, Graveyard Fields is just north of here on the Parkway at milepost 418.8 and Devil's Courthouseis just a bit further south at milepost 422.4.
