Summer Hike Series 2019

LET’S GET OUTSIDE!

Yoga extends past the mat. 

While many of us have become familiar with all the variations and reiterations of the physical asana practice offered within a studio space, it's sometimes refreshing to remember that yoga carries into our everyday lives. 

Nature has it's own way of creating a meditative space. We connect to our breath with its fresh air, we separate from our busy lives and turn inward, our focus to one foot in front of the other. 

Saturday AuGUST 10 - Tunnel Bluffs

4.5hrs - 8km - Howe Sound - The hike to Tunnel Bluffs climbs steeply from the Sea To Sky Highway before following a flat section of an old logging road and arriving to a sweeping view of Howe Sound.

Saturday September 7 - TBA


where We’ve Been Already This Year!

Monday July 1 - Big Cedar & Kennedy Falls

5hrs - The North Shore - Come spend Canada Day exploring what is right in our own backyard! The trail passes an enormous ~ 600 year old-growth cedar tree, with several trees growing out of it, before heading further north to a spectacular waterfall called Kennedy Falls. This intermediate hike is approx. 5 hrs 10km. So bring snacks, water and lunch for at the falls. There are only a few shorter places with a more challenging incline, but the intermediate level comes from length and varied terrain.

Sunday JUNE 16 - Hollyburn Mountain

3.5hr - The North Shore - Hollyburn Mountain is the perfect hike to do when you have half a day and want to escape into the wilderness. The peak offers a scenic view of sections of Vancouver, Burrard Inlet, and the Lions off in the distance & there will still be time for whatever else you have planned for the rest of the day! We will meet at the bottom of the trail head at 10am. The trail head and parking are located in the cross country ski section of Cyprus Mountain. This section is just ahead of the rest of the ski area by taking a right turn into the lot. There is still may be some still packed snow at the top of the mountain so keep that in mind when choosing attire. *maybe bring extra sock, a sweater. and if you have hiking boots wear them.
