Wilderness First Aid Retreat

Accidents happen…

People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one-and maybe even save a life.

Backcountry Yoga has teamed up with SOLO Wilderness Medical School to offer you a custom 3 day 2 night Wilderness First Aid Retreat to prepare you for a crisis outside. We believe that they key to outdoor empowerment is education, mindful movement, and a deep reverence for the earth. Not only will you learn skills for the backcountry, but you'll have an opportunity to practice yoga, meditate in nature, and spend some quality time unplugged.

Mount Greylock Camping Weekend

Mount Greylock.png

Come hike Mount Greylock with Backcountry Yoga & Friends! 

We'll hike, practice yoga, and enjoy a night of camping in the backcountry celebrating the arrival of Summer! This is a half baked backpacking trip.... in that we don't need to carry our heavy gear on our backs, but we will be hiking our gear in 1.3 miles after our hike! So you'll just need to be mindful of what you bring  (It will be worth it I promise <3)

((Saturday Schedule))
Saturday morning we'll meet at 8am and hike the Mount Greylock Summit Loop:
Distance: 6.6 miles
Difficulty: Moderate/Difficult Rocky Steep terrain. Expect this to take between 6-8 hours
Ascent: 2,252' 
Elevation:
 3,479' 

At the top of our mountain we'll take a moment for a seated mountain top meditation followed by snacks & lunch.

On our descent we'll head to our campsite, nestled on the side of the mountain about 1.3 miles in, set up tents, and spend some time cooling down with a restorative slow flow yoga practice.

Dinner will be served by the Backcountry Yoga team, but we urge you to bring you own snacks, apps, bowls, plates and utensils. ( We will make a vegan dish with an optional animal protein add on)

After dinner, wind down with hot beverages by the fire, telling stories, and enjoying the fresh air.


((Sunday Schedule))
 
In the morning wake up by 8:30am for rise & shine yoga flow with coffee & tea
After we'll enjoy a light breakfast served by the Backcountry Yoga team followed by a breakdown of camp and farewell!

Summer Solstice Fireside Yoga

Join Laura Loewy, founder of Backcountry Yoga, for a cozy outdoor yoga class followed by a campfire amongst the wild hills and forest of Farrington Nature Linc.

This class is part of a monthly series, designed to offer you creative ways to spend time with friends & family, meet new people, and get away from the business of life. Laura invites you to unplug, unwind, and let nature renew your sense of wonder and joy.

All classes will follow with marshmallows and s'mores by the fire. Asana will always be all levels and sequenced around the current moon phases. We encourage you to bring food or eat ahead of class time :)

No Props will be provided, so please bring your own mat, blocks, and extra blankets. If you are specifically prone to bug bites, bring some bug spray and consider buying some bug repellent clothing. (Just please spray yourself away from the other guests)
