A walk in the woods has measurable benefits for brain and body! Try a hike with a trained yogi (not the bear type) at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. Many hikers suffer from tight hamstrings, calf and quad muscles, while many yoga practitioners could use more aerobic conditioning. These hikes will help with both.


 Programs will be scheduled on the following dates: 

Ranger Guided Yoga Hikes, Saturday May 16, 23, and 30 at 9:00 AM Hikes will be at a moderate pace for 1 to 1.5 miles with intermittent stops for stretching and standing yoga poses for all levels. Please wear comfortable clothes that allow for a wide range of movement, comfortable flexible soled shoes and bring a water bottle. A mat will not be necessary for these hikes. 

Ranger Guided Yoga Hikes, every Wednesday and Saturday, June 3 through August 22 at 9:00 AM Hikes will be at a moderate pace for 1 to 1.5 miles with intermittent stops for stretching and standing yoga poses for all levels. Please wear comfortable clothes that allow for a wide range of movement, comfortable flexible soled shoes and bring a water bottle. A mat will not be necessary for these hikes. For those returning to the program we will be attempting some different trails and a few new poses. Please consider using this program to get some fresh air, enjoy a beautiful area and build a yoga practice that you can continue throughout your life.
