Join us Wednesday, July 24 for a sunset yoga hike at meadowdale beach park
Hike: “Easy” 2.5 miles, round-trip, with some uphill climb on the way back (425ft)
Yoga: 60 minute all-levels Vinyasa yoga class on the beach (or grassy field)
Date/Time: Wednesday July 24, 7pm – 9:30pm (note: meet up was rescheduled from July 17 to July 24)
Who: All are welcome! Geared toward adults, kids ages 8 years+ are welcome to register
We’ll gather at the Meadowdale Beach trailhead, also known as Lund’s Gulch, in Edmonds/Lynnwood, at 7pm. At 7:15pm we’ll hike the 1+ mile down to the beach through a beautiful forested trail. The hike is short, with some switchbacks and stairs, but overall a great beginner/gentler hike.
When we arrive at the beach, we’ll set up our mats on the beach, in the grassy field, or under the picnic shelter (weather and tide dependent). The yoga practice will be a 60 minute slow-flow Vinyasa 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 enjoy the sunset together on the beach before hiking back up to the parking lot. Sunset is just after 9pm on July 24.
MEET UP DETAILS
Space is limited to 20 participants. The meet up fee goes toward the yoga instruction, with 5% of proceeds donated to Washington Trail Association. I’ll also hook you up with sparkling water/iced tea/snacks/smiles before and after the yoga hike. We’ll meet up rain or shine. In severe/unsafe weather, I will reschedule the meet up and/or offer a yoga credit to all registered guests to attend a future yoga hike.
What to Bring: Your own yoga mat, a towel (for under or over your mat, especially if it’s a little wet out), hiking shoes, clothes comfortable for hiking and yoga (layers highly recommended), water, a flashlight or headlamp for the hike back up, and additional snacks. More tips on what to bring will be emailed out to registered participants prior to the event.
I have two scholarships available, please email me at email@example.com and tell me a little bit about yourself to request a scholarship.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT® 200), passionate about combining community, yoga, and the outdoors. I look forward to hosting several yoga hike meet-ups this spring, summer, and fall. When not in the mountains, you can find me teaching at local yoga studios around the Seattle, Eastside, and Everett areas.

Registrations and yoga meet up fees are non-refundable, however registrations are transferable from one date to another or from one person to another. In the event the meet up is cancelled or postponed due to severe weather, I will reschedule the event and/or provide a credit for a future outdoor yoga meet up. All meet up attendees are required to sign a waiver to participate, which will be emailed at registration or available day-of. The hike meet up and yoga class are at your own risk. The hike is not a guided hike, we will simply meet up and hike together to the yoga location.

From I-5, take exit 183 to 164th St SW, going west for about 1.3 miles. Continue on the main thoroughfare as it bears left and becomes 44th Ave W, while 164th St SW forks to the right as a minor street. After another 0.4 miles, at a traffic light, turn right onto 168th St SW and continue west. Go straight across Route 99, then after less than 0.5 mile, turn right on 52nd Ave W at a gas station. Go 0.5 miles, then turn left on 160th St SW where you will see a brown sign on the right, pointing left for “Meadowdale County Park”. Follow these brown signs at each of the next junctions: go 0.25 miles, then turn right on 56th Ave W. Go 0.25 miles, then go left on 156th St SW.
Free parking is available at the trailhead, if parking on the street, pay attention to any “no parking” signs. Note: For sunset hikes, park on the street outside the gated parking lot… just in case they close the gate before we get back up!
