HIKE

We’ll gather at Heybrook Ridge Trailhead in Index, WA at 8am. At 8:15am we’ll hike the 1.7 miles to the ridge/viewpoint. This hike has moderate elevation gain on a well maintained trail. On a clear day, we’ll be rewarded with a remarkable views of Mt. Index, Bridal Veil Falls, and the Skykomish valley. The trailhead is an approximate 1-hour drive from Everett, Seattle, or Bellevue.

YOGA

When we arrive at the top, we’ll soak up the views and then hike just a little further up the ridge to a larger clearing for yoga. The yoga practice will be a 60 minute slow-flow vinyasa yoga class, focusing on strengthening, stretching, breathing, and connecting to nature. The yoga practice is all-levels – designed for beginner and experienced yogis alike! After yoga, we’ll hike back down together.

Note: There are some power lines near the top of the hike where we’ll be practicing yoga. If you’re sensitive to electrical noise/vibrations, this may not be the best meet up for you.
