During Hiking Yoga’s classes, yogis of all skill levels pose, flex, and stretch through a blend of ancient body-bending techniques and push themselves during a cardio-intensive 90-minute hike. A mixed group of students and instructors journeys up the hilly trail at a sustainable and calorie-searing 3 miles per hour, regularly making yoga pit stops at sights such as scenic city views, natural landscapes, and clouds shaped like clouds. Unlike most standard yoga classes, the public yoga hikes feature an outdoor, interval-style workout fueled by fresh air and executed on an organic surface.
The 14-day cleanse bolsters safe and holistic eating habits with a comprehensive program pairing detoxifying cuisine with social support. For two weeks, dieters purify their bodies with nutritious, seasonal fare on one of three levels of intensity that range from beginner-level cleanse all the way to full-blown vegan. Along with detailed recipes and grocery shopping lists, the program includes online features including daily videos, regular email support, meal logs, and membership to a private Facebook group where fellow cleansers can share their experiences or photos of their pet capybara.
Its rapid rise chronicled in in Forbes, Men’s Journal, and a parcel of other press, Hiking Yoga has sent massive waves of invigorated bliss washing up and down the west coast since its 2009 founding. Each of its outdoor excursions melds the cardio workout of hiking with the stretching and measured breaths of yoga. Certified instructors lead pupils through scenic vistas, or, in early-morning sessions, impressionistic dreamscapes, as they alternate between heart-pumping strides and yoga breaks suitable for neophytes and the pretzel-capable alike.
