We just released two new books for avid hikers and climbers looking to use yoga to hike farther and climb higher. Each guide - one specific for climbers and one for hikers - were written by  Nicole Tsong and feature photos of our members!

The guides feature:

  • Detailed overviews of the areas of the body most impacted by climbing and hiking
  • Injuries common to these sports that yoga can address
  • Explanation of yoga's physical and mental benefits, and how they can enhance your time on rock or trail
  • Foundational techniques for creating a yoga practice, including the fundamentals of meditation
  • Several sequences for a home practice, designed specifically for climbers and hikers
  •  Interviews with climbers and hikers who use yoga to support their physical strength and hone their mental focus—from professionals, such as Steph Davis and Buzz Burrell, to average weekend-warriors

Trailhead Yoga (at a discount!)

We may joke about doing yoga on top of mountains for Instagrams, but Mountaineers member and basic climbing grad Sara Papanikolaou actually does yoga outside in beautiful places on a regular basis. This summer, she is organizing a series of yoga classes at Stevens Pass on Saturday mornings. She's like to offer the classes to our members for 20% off! 

This outdoor Vinyasa class is designed to stretch and strengthen all the muscles needed for a day of exploring the surrounding mountains. At the close of the yoga session, Sara will review your next-step opportunities, including dining options, scenic chairlift rides, hiking trails, and bike paths within walking distance, before turning you loose to enjoy the gorgeous alpine scenery!  

Open to beginners and advanced students. Sign up online and use this code to receive the 20% discount. Please note you must be logged in as a member to see the code.
