Join us SUNDAY, JULY 31 for hiking + Sunset Yoga
Hike: “Intermediate/hard” 3.6 miles (round-trip) with steady elevation gain (~1,700 ft in 1.8 miles up)
Yoga: 60 minute all-levels Vinyasa yoga practice
Date/Time: Sunday, July 31 6pm – 10pm (rescheduled from 7/26)
We’ll gather at the Poo Poo Point Chirico trailhead parking lot at 6pm. At 6:15pm we’ll hike together to the first clearing/false summit, apx. 1.6 miles from the trailhead. We’ll set up our yoga mats at the large clearing (facing Mt. Rainier).
The total hike is 3.2 miles round-trip with ~1700 ft. elevation gain (“short and very steep”), with an optional 1/2 mile more to the second/main viewpoint. As needed, we will break into smaller groups to respect the trail and support different paces.
At the clearing we’ll gather for a 60 minute Vinyasa style yoga practice, focusing on stretching, breathing, and connecting to nature. The yoga practice is all-levels – designed for beginner and experienced yogis alike! We’ll end the class in time to enjoy the sunset at 8:43pm. With any luck, we’ll get a beautiful sunset from the south or west-facing view points.
MEET UP DETAILS
This is a free meet-up. Space is limited to 12 participants; pre-registration is required. Optional donations to support organizing the meet-ups and yoga instruction can be made to Venmo @pnwyoga (suggested $35). Meet-up is geared for adults; mature teens or children are welcome to attend with their grown-up – please register them as well.
We’ll meet up rain or shine. In severe heat/storms/unsafe/smokey weather, I will reschedule or cancel the meet-up, as safety and fun are priorities!

More tips on what to bring will be emailed out to registered participants prior to the hike.
I am a Certified Yoga Teacher (RYT® 200+), passionate about combining community, yoga, and the outdoors. As an avid hiker, I look forward to hosting several yoga hike meet-ups this summer. When not in the mountains, you can find me teaching at local yoga studios in the greater Everett area and wrangling my two school-aged boys. More about me.
