We strive to make Yoga Hikes a fun social workout and a great outdoor yoga experience! Thanks to all of you who have given us feedback and shared your reviews on Yelp and on Facebook.

What a fantastic way to start the weekend!
I went on my second yoga hike today with Rachel, and while I already knew she was a wonderful teacher from practicing with her at Stroga, her energy, warmth, and humor are such a breath of fresh air on these yoga hikes. She provides excellent tips for both the hiking and yoga portions, and always encourages everyone on the hike to ask questions and really treat it as an opportunity to get one-on-one attention throughout the practice and the hike. She is also just so much fun!
I HIGHLY recommend yoga hikes for a great workout (the hiking moves at a brisk pace, and it really keeps you warmed up for the yoga portions) that is both social and beautiful–what better place to do tree pose than under a tree in Rock Creek?!
And, of course, shoutout to Squeaky the Frog, who really makes the trip.
Take advantage of the amazing resource that is Rock Creek Park, and go on a Yoga Hike! It’s just the best way to start the day.
Thanks, Hannah! We truly appreciate the review and look forward to seeing you on more Yoga Hikes this fall! Haven’t written a review yet? Click on the Yelp logo above and start your review now!

Getting To Yoga Hikes by Metro or Car
We currently have Yoga Hikes scheduled in two locations in Rock Creek Park. You can get to BOTH locations by Metro or car, but here’s the inside scoop. The Woodley Park/Rock Creek/Dumbarton Yoga Hike is only a 1/2 block from the Woodley Park/Adams Morgan Metro stop. There is metered and zoned street parking in this area, but you will likely park 3-4 blocks away so give yourself ample time to find that precious spot. On the other hand, the Peirce Mill/Rock Creek location has a FREE PARKING LOT and FREE STREET PARKING. If you are coming by car, it’s only 1.5 miles up the road from our Woodley Park location, so enter in the GPS info below and come find us there on most Sundays!
GREAT if coming by METRO: Woodley Park/Rock Creek/Dumbarton… Nature Yoga Hikes starts across the street from Open City diner at the intersection of 24th and Calvert Street NW in Woodley Park. (one block south of Woodley Park Metro, meter and zone street parking). If walking, driving, or cycling: For GPS use: 2331 Calvert St. NW, Washington, DC 20008.
GREAT if coming by CAR: Peirce Mill/Rock Creek Nature Yoga Hikes starts in the field adjacent to the parking lot of Pierce Mill on Shoemaker Rd, off of Tilden in NW. (Free parking lot and ample free street parking. Pierce Mill is located off the intersection of Beach Dr, Park Rd, and Tilden Rd NW). For Metro, plan on a 20 minute walk from Van Ness Metro. If walking, driving, or cycling: For GPS use: 3910 Shoemaker St NW, Washington, DC 20008
If you come by car we can’t stress enough the importance of planning ahead. Rock Creek Parkway/Beach Drive is subject to closures due to races and other special events throughout the season. Be prepared and give yourself at least 15 minutes extra to park and locate us!
