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.
Sunday September 15 - Garibaldi Lake
We’re wrapping up the season with a bang!
5-6hrs - 18km - Intermediate - With turquoise-coloured water nestled between alpine mountains and a spectacular glacier as the backdrop, Garibaldi Lake is one of the most scenic destinations in British Columbia. The first 6km of the trail is a gradual uphill climb through dense forests of Douglas Fir trees then takes a turn towards the lake. Once we have made it to the lake we’ll stop for lunch and maybe take a dip! There will be the option head back the we came or to add a few km through Taylor Meadow if you would like!
9:30am - meet at Rubble Creek Trailhead (0A0 Daisy Lake Rd, Whistler, BC V0N 0A0)
I know it’s early but we want to get there early so we can be there for lunch and be back at a reasonable time! It also means better parking!

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.
