THIS ITINERARY

WHERE: Hawn State Park - Meet at the Park Office at 8:50 am or Dudas Fitness in Weldon Spring at 7:00 am to carpool.

WHEN: Sunday 6/18/2017 9AM-2PM*

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Yoga Hikes STL brings like-minded souls together to connect with nature while deepening our understanding of ourselves.

Yoga: 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.

Hike: On our 4 1/2 mile hike (.70 miles on Pickle Springs Trail & 3.75 miles on the North loop of Whispering Pine Trail) we will savor the riches of Hawn State Park; sandy forest floors strewn with pine needles, sandstone landscape features, orchids, ferns, and the clear water of Pickle Creek. The trails are rated rugged and you may experience the following:

  • Natural surface, dirt, mud, gravel, shifting rocks, slippery surface, etc.
  • Rocks, roots and/or downed vegetation on trail
  • Low hanging vegetation
  • Physically challenging obstacles
  • Wood or stone steps
  • Steep grades and inclines more than 10 percent
  • Bluffs or drop-offs next to trail
  • Occasional water over trail
  • Bridges and/or structural crossings
  • Water/stream crossings withour bridges

Practice: At the most opportune time, embraced by nature's beauty, you'll take part in a Yoga Asana Practices 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.




See our website for general gear recommendations. You will need to bring your yoga mat with you on the hike along with plenty of water and snacks.

*Depending on the pace of participants in this group with the rugged terrain, we are prepared to divide up into two groups based on pace. Our time is currently based on a 1.5 mph pace. Should the group be split, we expect one group to be paced at 1.5-2.0 mph and the other at 1.0-1.5 mph. There is an option to take a connector out if anyone needs to leave earlier than we have scheduled.

Space is extremely limited. Pre-registration required.
