MEETS AT: the street level offices of the Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID) located at: 1911 North Fort Myer Drive, LL-10, Arlington, VA 22209 (next door to the side of Continental Pool Lounge facing Gateway Park).  Space is limited, please sign up early!

You can find these classes on our MindBodyOnline registration site. These classes are Special Events and not held the entire summer, but the cost is the same as our regular single hike drop in ($25) or 3 hike pass ($60).  All classes are available for registration now.  Sadly, our online registration system had some glitches last week, but they are now fixed!  If you do encounter ANY trouble registering whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately by email danielle@yogahikesdc.com or phone (202)670-6120.  We are eager to help you and look forward to leading you out on the trails this season!Roz3

Meet Yoga Hikes Instructor Sara Bannon

Sara Bannon Sara is a registered yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance (RYT 200) and graduate of the prestigious Mimi Rieger Teacher Training Program.  A student of yoga for over a decade, Sara began accelerating her practice during (and while recovering from) a full term twin pregnancy.  Through this experience, Sara is equally comfortable working with advanced students and those new to their practice.

Sara’s yoga philosophy can be best described through one of her favorite quotes from BKS Iyengar. Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

When not training and teaching yoga, Sara is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the State of Virginia and is dedicated to supporting the local nonprofit community.  Sara is a graduate of Ohio University and is the winner of the 2014 Nonprofit CFO of the Year Award, Rising Star.

We love having Sara on the Yoga Hikes team.  She is upbeat, compassionate, and fun!  A resident of VA, Sara will be leading most of our Yoga Hikes Virginia.

100% All Natural Hot Yoga…Hikes

The BeachSummer is in full swing!

Yep!  We’ve got 100% all natural hot yoga every weekend for you.   But since some of you may find the heat daunting, we want to offer a few points to consider.

  • Its cooler in the woods and we practice in the shade.
  • Heat helps you get limber and is great for yoga breakthroughs!
  • It’s not as hot outside as it is in a hot yoga studio (usually 105 degrees!)
  • The summer breeze means no stagnant stuffy air.
  • Nothing like a good sweat to detox the body!
  • We’ll take you to “the beach.”  (Peirce Mill Hike)
  • Some hikes end at an awesome cool water pump! (Peirce Mill Hike)

Bottom line, outdoor hot yoga is high quality good stuff.  Give it a try!  For the rest of July and August we will have at least 2 Yoga Hikes a week.  Sign up online and join us!

Thank You Rosslyn, VA!

We had a fantastic experience offering Yoga Hikes in Rosslyn for the month of June and we plan to be back!  Though these were Urban Yoga Hikes we hiked up good hills and through FIVE parks including Gateway Park, Highlands Park, Hillside Park, Dark Star Park, and Freedom Park!  What really made it great though were all of the hikers who came out for their first Yoga Hike.  Your tweets, posts, and feedback were fantastic.  Thank you!!

Stay tuned via our Facebook page and website for upcoming dates in Rosslyn before the 2014 season ends!  For more photos of our June Yoga Hikes in Rosslyn taken by owner and lead yoga hiker, Danielle M. Reyes, visit our Facebook Page.

Reyes, including yoga, hiking, running, and stand up paddle boarding!

Rachel WimberleyRachel Wimberley was first attracted to yoga after a significant weight loss in her twenties. After changing her diet and lifestyle she was ready to find a way to help tone and refine her physical body while also bringing calmness and clarity to her busy mind. Over the past few years she found that both mind and body have been transformed by her yoga practice. She is a graduate of STROGA’s Yoga Teacher Training program. Sara Bannon
