Fall Yoga and Camping Retreat (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
This event is co-Sponsored by Gear Forward. https://www.gearforward.org/
Join us as we celebrate fall with yoga and a day hike! This event consists of one night of camping at Wyalusing State Park in southwestern Wisconsin. After arriving Saturday morning and meeting the other attendees, join us for a guided stretch and yoga session (weather permitting) prior to hitting the trail. After yoga you can head out on one of our guided day hikes, or explore one of the many trails at your own leisure. This is a great opportunity to test your gear in cooler temperatures, experience camping in a change of season, and share information that may be helpful to extend your time in the outdoors beyond warmer weather. Late afternoon a restorative yoga class will be offered for those that wish to participate. Be sure to bring your mat or feel free to borrow one of ours.
Lunch and snacks will be provided on Saturday, as will dinner and dessert. Breakfast will also be provided Sunday morning. Join us for happy hour on Saturday from 4-6, an assortment of mixed drinks, wine, and beer will be provided. A specially prepared dinner will be served between 5 and 6 pm, then take time to unwind, relax, make new friends and exchange stories next to the campfire.
For those that wish to participate, a morning outdoor yoga session will be provided Sunday morning (weather permitting).
