Yoga was created to prepare the practitioner to sit and meditate with ease. Wilderness yoga is intended to prepare the traveler to navigate the wilds with attunement and grace, constantly moving to become still. This August we will be rafting the Middle Fork and Main Salmon rivers in search of the wildest yoga classrooms on the planet. If you love rafting, adventure and want to reconnect to nature and yourself, you’ve got to join us!
Each day we’ll practice a select yoga sequence, meditation and commitment to our wellbeing. Add experienced adventure-based yoga instructors, expert rafting guides, gourmet food, hot springs and some of the wildest stretches of navigable rivers in North America and you have a moving paradise for nearly two wild weeks…..do either river for 6 days, or give yourself the ultimate gift of both rivers for 12 days!
