YogaHikes RVA has an amazing line-up of events this season, including old favorites like the Carillon, the pipeline, and the flood wall. We are also adding new local routes in Church Hill, Chimborazo, and Gillie's Creek, and expanding our reach to the new Powahatan State Park and Wintergreen, VA. The greater Richmond area has so many unique landscape treasures to enjoy. We hope you will join us on these yoga and hiking adventures this season!
In addition to new routes, YogaHikes is pleased to announce a new YogaHikes guide this season! Becky Eschenroder is a certified, experienced, and respected yoga instructor here in the Richmond area. She is an avid explorer of the outdoors, and outdoor activities and yoga are part of her daily life. Please refer to the YogaHikes calendar to see which Sundays Becky will be leading.
In a continued effort to foster a strong sense of community support in our beautiful Richmond, YogaHikes service events will be scheduled throughout the season. Please check back to keep an eye on upcoming opportunities. Additionally, if you have any suggestions about where to host a YogaHike or how we might incorporate a local business into a YogaHike we would be happy to hear from you. Thank you so much for your love and support!

Did you know...?
Henry David Thoreau considered himself somewhat of a yogi.
"Free in this world as the birds in the air, disengaged from every kind of chains, those who practice yoga gather in Brahma the certain fruits of their works. Depend upon it that, rude and careless as I am, I would fain practice the yoga faithfully. The yogi, absorbed in contemplation, contributes in his degree to creation; he breathes a divine perfume, he hears wonderful things. Divine forms transverse him without tearing him, and united to the nature which is proper to him, he goes, he acts as animating original matter. To some extent, and at rare intervals, even I am a yogi." -HD Thoreau
