Event description

Description

Please allow 45-60 minutes travel time and arrive 10 - 15 minutes early.
We'll meet in the gravel/grass parking lot at the end of Catawba River Road. There area public restrooms to use before or after the class here. We'll start hiking at 8:00 AM for about 45 minutes until we reach the waterfalls. I’ll discuss a bit of information and history along the way. At the falls, we'll meditate for 10-15 minutes surrounded by the soothing sounds of rushing water, birds chirping and wind rustling through the trees. We'll head back half way until we reach a small, shaded, flat area slightly off the main trail. Here, we’ll flow through at least 60 minutes of traditional Hatha yoga before hiking back to the parking lot. The trail is 1.5 miles each way (3 miles roundtrip).

Directions:

(About 31 miles from Asheville) From Asheville, take I-40 east to Exit 73 at Old Fort. Before the exit ramp ends, take the right hand turn onto Catawba River Rd. If you are coming from east of Old Fort on I-40 west, take Exit 73, turn left and take the first right before McDonalds (on ramp to get back onto I-40). Turn left onto Catawba River Rd. Drive three miles to the end of the road to the parking lot.

Positive physiological and mental benefits of both yoga and reconnecting with nature have been reported including reduction of pain, stress and inflammation as well as better sleep.

In the event of cancellation due to weather, you will be issued a refund.
