Yoga for Hikers
Use yoga to heighten your experience on the hiking trail! Join “Yoga Hiker” and new UVY instructor Amanda Anderson in a physical practice that you can take into the woods and that will invite contemplation on the relationship between yoga and the natural world:
- Move mindfully through an asana series designed to build strength and stamina in the legs and core muscles while releasing shoulder, neck, and upper back tension.
- Learn poses that you can bring on the hiking trail to make your time in nature more conscious and centered.
- Get inspired by reflections on our place in the natural world.
- Experience how the environmental elements of air, fire, water, and earth manifest within the energy centers of our bodies. Allow yourself to connect with each of these elements as it exists within you.
Open to all levels. Please sign up on our calendar page to reserve your space. Pay drop in rate, or use your existing pass.

Twist your tension away in this end-of-the-week Forrest Yoga twisting practice. Get your blood moving, ease the toxins from your body, and elongate your spine. Strengthen your core. Forrest Yoga is a dynamic, mindful, smartly sequenced practice to release internal obstacles, build flexibility, and create space within. The classes are a series of carefully constructed asanas and vinyasa designed to strip numbness from your core, help you breathe and move in ways that release emotional shielding, and prevent and heal injury. You’ll sweat and feel restored to your best self by the end of Savasana.

Give yourself the gift of restorative yoga this summer and experience the many benefits of this highly therapeutic practice. This two-hour class will begin with a period of mellow flow encouraging a gentle transition from a day of activity into an evening of relaxation and rejuvenation. The ensuing restorative practice will be dedicated to quiet, long, supported holds in poses intended to facilitate a gratifying sense of balance of both mind and body. The class will conclude with a period of mindful sitting culminating in sweet Savasana. Unplug, unwind, recharge, and restore.

“Our breath is constantly rising and falling, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving our bodies. Full body breathing is an extraordinary symphony of both powerful and subtle movements that massage our internal organs, oscillate our joints, and alternately tone and release all the muscles in the body. It is a full participation in life.” – Donna Farhi
