Wilderness Yoga & Hiking

We try our best to keep the schedule below, but weather, tourist events, danger warnings, etc. will sometimes cause a change in location. Meeting places are typically in an area with ample free parking and coffee/tea and breakfast snack options. Few, but some, meeting places are near public transportation. Morning meeting times vary between 7:00am-10:00am. THERE IS LIMITED SPACE on each hike, reserve your dates as soon as possible to guarantee you get the dates and hike you desire.

Popular Wilderness Hike Locations /Descriptions

FLS -THE FELLS (Boston Area, Massachusetts) These are relaxed level hikes in a controlled nature area.

BKH -BREAKHEART RESERVATION (Boston Area, Massachusetts) These are relaxed level hikes in a controlled nature area.

BST -BOSTON CITY TOUR (Boston Area, Massachusetts) It's amazing how you can bring your own calm into a busy city environment. These "hikes" include walks along the Freedom Trail, North end, along the bay/water, and Christopher Columbus Park. We will stop and do Yoga along the way and there will even be a meditation instruction lesson and practice.

FUM -FLUME GORGE (Lincoln, NH) $15 additional fee paid to Flume Gorge on site. This waterfall is so beautiful that they are able to charge to walk along it. They built stairs and a maintained path to allow people to visit without harming the environment. A wonderful experience to be a part of.

LKM -LAKE MASSABESIC (Auburn (Manchester Area), New Hampshire) A beautiful 2,561 acre area surrounding a beautiful lake. These are relaxed hikes in nature. The surface is natural, but mainly flat and easy to manage on foot.

RRT -ROCKINGHAM RECREATION TRAILS (Manchester Area, New Hampshire) This is a 26 mile set of trails. The hikes can vary from Relaxed to Intermediate to Advanced. A 30-45 minute drive from the north side of Boston, we will meet in Salem, NH or Manchester, NH and group together to drive to the trail head for these hikes.

SUN -SUNAPEE STATE PARK (Western New Hampshire) $5 Cash Fee paid per person on site. This location has a 75 mile loop trail that links four New Hampshire State Parks: Sunapee, Winslow, Rollins, Wadleigh. The trail also links three New Hampshire State Forests: Gile, Kearsarge and Shadow Hill as well as one Wildlife Management Area.

PSP -PILLSBURY STATE PARK (Western New Hampshire) $4 Cash Fee paid per person on site at the beautiful park with several developed trails, ponds, and nature all around. (NOT RECOMMENDED. The last time we hiked this area the trails were not groomed or travelled. We were wading through knee-high weeds/thorns & leech infested swamp water on the marked trails.)

WMT -WHITE MOUNTAINS (Northern, New Hampshire) Parking can range from FREE-$5.00 cash at the trailheads. Ski resort destination in the winter, amazing hiking and wilderness terrain in the summer. There isn't a bad area to hike in the White Mountains during the summer, and add a little Yoga and some mediation and you're in heaven. The temperatures are cool enough to make hiking comfortable, but warm enough to prevent from feeling chilly. These vary from Intermediate to Advanced and can include views of Lakes, fields, forest, Summit climbs, and waterfalls. A 1.5+ hour drive from Salem, NH makes this a VERY long day for those commuting from Boston, but all are welcome and the varied terrains and ability to find beautiful semi-isolated areas makes this entire area an unique mini-retreat destination.

MCD -MOUNT CARDIGAN This is a 5,655 acre park of beautiful mountains, lakes, waterfalls, views, etc. The trails range from relaxed, intermediate, to advanced. The trailheads are 2+hours from Boston, without traffic, which makes for a very long day for those coming from Boston.

The Story of How Our Summer Hobby Became a Business

We couldn't think of a better way to connect our mind, body, and spirit with the earth than to get out in nature and connect with it personally. We were hiking through forests, climbing mountains, meditating in waterfalls, and opening our hearts to the earth in yoga poses when the mood swept over us.

The next thing we knew everyone wanted to join us as we explored Yoga and the amazing land that surrounds the Lake Tahoe area. What a wonderful thing. :) We are so pleased to be able to offer this unique opportunity to everyone. We began by hand-picking a small selection of interested students and friends to join us on the journeys and retreats.

Now we have moved to the New England area and people reserve our hikes months in advance. We have had to limit each hike to allow only a few of the people who are interested in joining us so the experience continues to be personal and unique. We really hope you enjoy hiking with us as much as we enjoy sharing the experience with you.

....once we figure out how to turn our winter hobby (snowboarding) into a business you'll be the first to hear about it. ;)
