Our Story

Our Story


 

Quiet your mind. Find your soul.
Have fun in between.

Welcome to Backcountry Yoga! Here you will find a community of unique people with the same goal: to find balance between a healthy body and a peaceful mind through movement and adventure.

In this busy and noisy world we live in, maintaining inner peace, spiritual connectedness and a sense of wholeness is a voluntary choice - and we’re making it every day of our lives.

Being outside adds a unique dimension to our movement practice & yoga, deepening its core purpose of union with yourself, others and nature. This is precisely why we ditched the studio practice in favor of complete outdoor experiences.

We offer a wide array of outdoor adventures including, but not limited to, mindful nature walks, yoga in the woods, hiking, backpacking, camping and more. While we are currently based in New England, we also go far beyond.

Our core belief is that yoga & hiking are for everyone, regardless of lifestyle, fitness level or expectations. Either if you do it to attain absolute zen or just to plug out from routine – we’re here to help you meet your objectives.

Let’s break free together!

Our Mission


Our Mission


 

Happy Healthy Humans
=
Vibrant Vivacious Earth

As humans, we are creatures of habit and comfort zone – but magic happens only when you dare to step outside of it.

Backcountry Yoga has no walls, so our imaginary door is open to anyone who feels ready to explore spellbinding places, meet awesome people and improve their health and wellbeing. Please keep in mind that we don’t expect you to quit your day job and turn into an adventure-addicted nomad. In fact we’re here to call B.S. on the whimsical social media scroll bait that makes your beautiful life seem less than ideal.

The fact is, you have an opportunity to tap into nature’s magic this very moment by walking out your door, rolling down your windows, and taking a big deep breath of fresh air. (for free!) We’re just here to give you a little nudge out the door.

So if you’re ready for a life changing shake up, or an excursion away from day to day life, you’ve come to the right place. Backcountry Yoga started with the sole desire to build meaningful connections with like minded individuals who share the excitement of nature’s wonders.

We welcome you with open arms and open minds. Together we can change the world. One hike at a time.

Mountaineering w/ NOLS in the North Cascade Mountains in June 2015

Laura started Backcountry Yoga as a passion project to offer new and exciting ways for yogis to connect in the great outdoors. Since 2015 the brand has grown far  beyond her backyard and taken her to many more wild places than she could have ever imagined. Laura’s journey to connecting yoga and adventure travel started in 2011, on the Salmon River in Idaho, where she had her first “aha” moment communing with nature on a level that went beyond words. Laura is now an alumni of the National Outdoor Leadership School, a teacher of Wilderness First Aid, a Wilderness First Responder and professional hiking guide in the White Mountain National Forest. With over 1000 hours of teaching yoga, Laura is certified in power vinyasa, teen yoga and plant medicine yoga, with an emphasis on lunar influenced sequencing. In addition to yoga adventures, she loves skiing Vermont pow, rock climbing, long boarding by the ocean, sea kayaking, bingeing really weird SyFy TV shows, connecting with female entrepreneurs, and most of all her two new kittens Minnow & Storm :)
