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’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.”

Thank You for Making our Launch Awesome!YogiHiker bridge stretch

If you’ve been wondering why you hadn’t heard about Yoga Hikes before, it’s because we are new! Yoga Hikes DC launched in May 2013 and is off to a great start thanks to people like you!   It’s only May and we’ve had some fantastic Urban and Nature Yoga Hikes and have already made it through days of steady drizzle and days of heat and humidity.  Conditions won’t always be ideal, but that has not stopped  you from showing up and giving 100%.    Those of you who have participated in our inaugural Yoga Hikes have been amazing! We can’t thank you enough for your energy, enthusiasm, and sense of adventure.  It proves what we already knew to be true about this region…it is comprised of amazing people who love to be out and about and are always up for new activities.  So first things first, THANK YOU!
