Adventures In North America's Wildest Places
As yoga steadily gains popularity, yoga studios are saturating the market like Starbucks. The abundance of studios makes it tempting to keep your practice confined within four walls. While many yoga studios are cozy, serene and welcoming places, studios can't compete with the awe-inspiring beauty of nature that is ever present. As Labor Day approaches, you may be looking towards the fall but don't discount summer yet! There is still plenty of time left to take your practice outside into the days of summer. And there are plenty of reasons to do so.
Now that I have convinced you to get outside, you might be wondering where or how to practice outside. Here are my suggestions:
Bio: Melissa is looking forward to taking her yoga practice outside this fall at the Red Rock Yoga and Hiking Retreat in otherworldly Goblin Valley, Utah with Get In The Wild Adventures. Besides practicing yoga with goblins, Melissa founded and directs the Northwest Yoga Conference which takes place in the Seattle, WA area each February.
Great news for fans of the beautiful and awe-inspiring red-rock canyons of Southern Utah. We just received our 2012 Commercial Use Permit for Capitol Reef National Park. We have a variety of exciting canyoneering trips planned which include some of the best slot-canyons in the Southwest.
For those unfamiliar with the park, it is characterized by colorful sandstone formations, cliffs, canyons, ridges, buttes and monoliths. It’s most stunning geologic feature is a 100 mile long warp in the Earth’s crust known as the Waterpocket Fold. This 65 million year old fold is the largest exposed monocline in the North America. It is comprised of younger and older layers of the Earth’s crust which were folded over each other in an S-shape. This striking geologic feature was probably caused by the same collision of continental plates that created the Rocky Mountains. It has weathered and eroded over melinnea to expose a fascinating amalgam of brilliantly colored sandstone cliffs and canyons, gleaming white domes and contrasting layers of intricately shaped rock and sand.
Great news for fans of North Cascades National Park and Picketeers everywhere! We just received word that our Commercial Use Permit for 2012 has been approved. For those looking for a well-rounded mix of backpacking through old-growth forests, hard-core steep bushwhacking through Devils Club and a wide variety of dense vegetation, magnificent alpine traverses, glacier mountaineering and alpine rock climbing--join us for one of North America's greatest adventures in the summer of 2012.
