Yoga + The Woods: a perfect marriage for a deep exhale and reconnection with the Earth, your breath and your higher self!

This is a 3 hike series with each hike being slightly more challenging. You can choose to do one hike or complete all three. The first two hikes will be off the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Nantahala National Forest and Middle Prong Wilderness respectively. The culmination of the series will be a hike to the stunning 360 degree view at The Pinnacle near Sylva, NC.  The hike starts in Pinnacle Park and ascends an old logging road through the Nantahala National Forest to the summit of The Pinnacle.

All hikes are an “out and back” format with an hour yoga class at the summit, guided by Tara Scarborough. The pace will be slow with plenty of time allotted for rest, water and snack breaks. The first two hikes would be appropriate for all fitness levels, while the Pinnacle Peak ascent is challenging!  We will meet for all events at the yoga studio to car pool to the trailhead.

Hikes will run with a minimum 3 people and a maximum of 7- so be sure to register early and hold your spot! 

We will be closing registration the FRIDAY before each hike, and will ask everyone to complete a brief medical history form to be gone over by the instructor, as well as a liability waiver. 

Need to haves:

  • Plenty of water–AT LEAST 2L for the first two hikes and AT LEAST 3 full nalgene bottles for the last hike
  • Snacks
  • Lunch
  • Sturdy hiking boots and thick hiking socks
  • Old yoga mat or towel
  • Rain coat
  • Any necessary medical items

Nice to haves:

  • Trekking poles or walking stick (I actually find these a “need.”)
  • Sun hat
  • Camera
  • Change of socks
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Sun glasses

—> Saturday Sept 14; 8am-3pm? (estimated// ALL DAY EVENT): The Pinnacle Hike (6 hours total) ($45)

The conclusion of the series is a spectacular. 6.7 mile hike. It is a challening hike with just over a 2000 foot elevation gain but don’t let that intimidate you!  The summit is truly worth the effort! We will plan on this event taking most of the day, so we can rest often to achieve our “Pinnacle.” The trail is very rocky in spots and follows old logging roads until the last 1/8 of a mile where the trail becomes narrow at the rock summit. The summit is an amazing spot to get some yoga pose pictures!

Space is limited: to save yours, register on our class calendar – or call 828.246.6570 – or email hello@waynesvilleyogacenter.com
