Yoga & Meditation:
In addition to hikes and retreats, we are proud to offer individual or group yoga and meditation offerings, including:
Trauma Conscious Yoga
Trauma (big or small) is experience, or experiences, we hold in our bodies, affecting the nervous system. Movement — here specifically yoga— helps move that stuck trauma.
Dawn offers a gentle yoga class, grounded in choice, with a rhythm of engage, integrate, rest. This trauma-informed class offers space to reclaim and befriend your body, specifically aimed to support healing from post-traumatic stress (PTSD), and the challenges that come along with it, such as anxiety, depression, or being “stuck.” Movement, breath-work, meditation, sound healing, and journaling are used to move stuck trauma.
Gentle movement and postures designed to reduce stress, increase self-awareness and build strength and balance.
In Yin, postures are held for longer periods of time, benefiting the deeper connective tissues.
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.

All classes include breath work, meditation, and sound healing:
- Breath Work – Breath work refers to breathing exercises or techniques to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During breath work you intentionally change your breathing pattern.
- Meditation – Experience benefits of reduced stress, improved awareness, and greater happiness. Enjoy a guided meditation that transforms by inducing relaxation and healing of the mind, body, and spirit.
- Sound Healing - Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, or other forms, the various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.
