Haven’t seen the reviews? Here’s a sneak peek!
Zack M. thinks – This is going to be the new thing in DC. It’s a good workout, takes place outside, and you get to be social during the hike. We went on the Pierce Mill route, an hour and a half of hills and beautiful scenery. Danielle, the owner/instructor, is incredibly knowledgeable both about the area (ask her for suggestions on other hiking trails) and yoga. We stopped along the creek, at the top of a hill in a blooming field, and next to the Boulder Bridge for yoga breaks. This is a perfect way to start a weekend and especially great to do with friends or as a couple.
Melody F. writes – I went on my first yoga hike two week ago and I absolutely loved it. I took an Urban Yoga hike which started at Dupont Circle. I’m a plus sized fitness enthusiast and at first I thought it would be awkward to preform yoga in the middle of DC. However, the instructor Danielle was great about reminding us to move with breath, focus on shutting out the outside world, and focus on the pose. I’ve taken a few yoga classes but am still a beginner and I found the 15 minute yoga sessions challenging but do-able. Once again, Danielle was very good at urging us to try our best, and find the fullest expression of each pose…I had a really fun and positive experience and I will definitely go on another yoga hike again soon.
According to new intern in town, Shannon S. – Just did my first yoga hike (Woodley/Dumbarton Oaks) and really loved it! I will definitely come back to explore different parks and areas of dc. I’m an avid hiker, but a yoga beginner and loved the combination of the two activities. The hiking portions were pretty fast paced, and kept your heartrate up whereas the yoga helped you to relax. Danielle was great, and very knowledgeable about the areas and yoga. While hiking, we were all able to socialize and learned a little about the areas we were hiking through as well. A yoga hike is definitely a great way to start your weekend!
Park enthusiast Cara S. shares – Just did my first ever yoga hike with Danielle…and it will not be my last! I did the 90 minute Nature Yoga Hike in Rock Creek Park and enjoyed every minute. Danielle is a great yoga instructor and I was surprised at how much yoga I could actually practice without a mat in the great outdoors. She’s also a good motivator to keep those legs moving up and down the hills and provides technique advice throughout the 90 minutes. The hike took me through parts of Rock Creek I had never explored, and I’m certainly going to go back with my pup who will love exploring those trails. I admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of exercise I got in the 90 minutes…she keeps you moving!
First time yogi Clayton L keeping it simple says – My first yoga class ever –Awesome!!!
