Us Californians are lucky. Just a short drive from our doorsteps we can find ourselves on beautiful beaches, watching whales off of cliff sides, swimming in rivers and getting lost amongst the oldest trees on earth. The Santa Cruz mountains are like a spiritual sanctuary full of these old trees. Housing a number of state parks, hundreds of miles of trail through redwood trees and small towns with less people than the apartment buildings we live in, it's a quiet and humbling refuge. I am excited to explore the redwoods with you, especially on the day of a full moon.
Everyone lives busy lives, taking an afternoon off to be in nature with like minded people will recharge you and inspire you. Join me!
The entire day is open to all levels of yogis and hikers.
Full moon discussion/intention setting
A hearty snack and a vegetarian lunch
Even though we won't be hiking under the full moon, we will be celebrating it. If you aren't into following the moon or don't understand what it's all about, you can expect a practical, non-fairy talk discussion about the implications of this full moon as we move into the fall and optional intention setting.
Yoga will take place in the town of Ben Lomond at the Alba Schoolhouse, a beautiful, unique school house built in 1895. Ben Lomond is a 10 minute drive from our hike.
