Yoga & Climbing Retreat
All levels welcome.
Escape to the New River Gorge and recharge your battery, it's like summer camp for adults. You'll make new friends, practicing yoga in the mornings and a day out climbing in the Gorge. All levels of climbers and yoga practitioners are welcome to attend.
We will be bedding down at the Opossum Creek Retreat in the Meadows Cabin which sleeps 20. It's fully furnished with a giant kitchen and you will have your choice of either a private room or a shared bunkroom. The great room is the perfect place to practice yoga indoors when the weather prevents us from practicing outdoors in the field.
Dinners are included (Friday and Saturday) and will be made with as many local and organic foods that we can get our hands on. We will make sure that these foods are nutritious and tasty for our worked muscles. You're on your own for breakfast and lunch each day.
Every day will include morning and afternoon yoga sessions led by Erin Larsen, who has over 10 years of experience. She holds a certification in the Pranavashya method from her teacher, Vinay Kumar who taught both Vinyasa and Therapeutic Yoga.
The afternoons will be spent climbing in the New River Gorge with AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructors as your teachers. We will have a 4:1 climber/instructor ratio and will divide the group into different skill groups. Newer climbers will learn foundational skills, and more advanced climbers will refine their technique and work on more technical skills.
