Celebrate Your Well-Being

Yoga and Hiking for Heart and Soul

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Take your yoga practice off the mat and into the woods by engaging your body and senses fully in a deep yoga practice while surrounded by nature. Join yoga teacher and tour director Lisa Rueff and experience her unique combination of joyful, inspiring vinyasa-style yoga accompanied by heart- and soul-elevating music.

You will also spend time outdoors and revel in the opportunity to heal, rejuvenate, and create more spaciousness as you enjoy a new hike each day and experiment with hiking meditation.

Physical movement indoors and outdoors will provide the perfect balance to introspective practices such as journaling, one-on-one and group sharing, and meditation.

You will explore:

  • New yoga poses and methods to deepen your yoga practice and take yoga out of the classroom and into your daily life
  • Mindfulness tips to cultivate gratitude and peace and learn how to engage more fully in the present moment
  • Journaling after yoga class and after hiking to provide you time for reflection, insight, and dreaming.
