LAST YOGA HIKE – SATURDAY, OCT. 15th 10am in RCP
Do you love hiking in the fall? There’s still time to sign up for the last open Yoga Hike of the 2016 season this Saturday, October 15th in Rock Creek Park from 10 – 11:30am. We will start at the parking lot across the street from Peirce Mill Barn (see registration for details) and hike along the Western Ridge trail stopping at three different locations to practice yoga and take in the outdoor autumn beauty. We hope you’ll join us for 90 minutes of fun outdoor fitness as we enjoy yoga and hiking through Rock Creek Park! Sign up HERE or visit our website www.yogahikesdc.com
Whether you came out on a Yoga Hike in 2013, 2014, 2015, or 2016 we want to THANK YOU for being a part of Yoga Hikes and enjoying the outdoors with us. This year we experimented with more private group hikes and fewer open weekend yoga hikes. We heard from many of you that one open monthly yoga hike was not enough and appreciate the feedback! We will continue to host our popular private group yoga hikes, but will certainly look to add more open hikes to the schedule for next spring.
LOVE FOR OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Each year we like to shine the light on nonprofit community partners doing great work on parks, urban green space, and the environment. We send them volunteers, help them raise funds, and more! If you don’t know about these great location nonprofit organizations, you should! They help keep some of our favorite parks safe, green, and open. They educate us about rivers, trees, and wildlife. In addition, they are working with area youth taking many out into the woods for the first time and raising the next generation of outdoor environmentalists, conservationists, gardeners, and agriculturalists! Your time as a volunteer or your cash donation of any amount will make a difference supporting the work of these three awesome local organizations!
HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY, U.S. NATIONAL PARKS
