Hiking Yoga


Downward dog goes walkies with Hiking Yoga – a new US workout that melds the mentally stimulating exploratory elements of hiking with body-awakening cardio and soul-soothing yoga poses.

The 90-minute Hiking Yoga workout aims to integrate the meditative elements of yoga with the physical activity of hiking. It also seeks to connect “body, nature and community” by engaging participants on a social level, with groups forming in cities across the US – from San Francisco to Austin and New York.

Hiking Yoga is further proof of the growing interest in hybrid fitness routines. For more on this subject, read our health and wellbeing report Spiritual Conditioning: Rise of the Mind-Body Workout
