It must be experienced to be explained. Incredible and highly recommended!
What a wonderful weekend! Magic must have brought this group together because I cannot imagine meeting all these people by chance. We had amazing accommodations and the best activities planned for us. I loved every single person I shared this journey with and hope to see them all again for Root to Rise 2019 (with the Zumba add on of course!)

This trip filled my heart with more joy than I thought it could hold. I met some incredible people, saw some beautiful views, and laughed more than I have in a long time. Laura and Kasey were amazing leaders and I cannot wait to take my next trip with them!!!!!!!

This trip was life changing. Laura and Joel led our group on an empowering weekend of outdoor adventure. Laura led us on an amazing hike and made us all feel prepared and taken care of. Laura and Joel provided an unexpected but very much appreciated gourmet meal for us in the rustic cabin. One of my favorite parts was hiking up to south peak to watch the sunset, truly magical. Laura and Joel brought back all the nostalgia of summer camp by telling ghost stories by the campfire, and surprising us with a dessert of s'mores rice crispy treats. Such an amazing weekend!

I loved the Backcountry Yoga 20 hr Outdoor Yoga Guide training so much. It was so good for my soul. Laura is a natural teacher who exudes so much wisdom from her personal experience and studies of yoga, nature, and science. I found this training to be a perfect balance of education, safety, creativity, nature, and spiritual teachings. It was such a gift to spend the weekend with Laura and the other yoga teachers in the group. I would highly recommend that anyone interested in bringing a group into nature for a yoga class or yoga hike attend this training,.
