When you walk outside your door and agree to show up to life that day doing the best you can, well thats yoga. Accepting the things you can’t change, finding courage to change the things you can, and having the wisdom to know the difference, thats yoga. Empowering your body to find the strength to hike up a mountain that you didn’t know you could hike, thats yoga. Doing the physical asana practice at the top of the mountain, well thats just the bonus 😉 Happy International Yoga Day!!!! We’ll have a vendor table at Copley square as part of the Yoga Day Boston event organized by @yogahubboston & @yogaforhumanity ! If you’re coming to the event stop on by to meet our founder @llogayoga to learn more about what we do :) After enjoy a totally free yoga class from 6:30-7:30 with hundreds of other yoga lovers lead by one of the most bad ass yoga boss babes I know @alisingeryoga !! #backcountryYoga #internationalyogaday #mountainyoga
Do you have creative instincts but find it hard to get the juices flowing?? Try taking your creative practice outside. Whether it’s through written words, color pencils, or just moving your body as art, immersing your self in our natural world has been proven to boost creativity time and time again :)
Coming off leading my second BCY teacher training of 2018 and I am feeling so charged up and excited!! Thank you @amysinclairyoga for the photo :) It was such a special experience spending two days at PLAY Yoga in Peabody teaching about outdoor leadership and outdoor yoga principles:) I love what I do and love teaching it even more than I ever knew!! I can’t wait to start bringing this training around the country! What state is up next??? Thank you to the 15 students who have trusted me with their most limited resource, their time!!! I am so grateful for every single one of you😘🙌🏻 Happy Monday. Follow your dreams my friends. You will open doors you never even knew where there! #backcountryyoga
View from the altar at our evening Yoga & Campfire class at Drumlin Farm!!

Don’t let other people write your story. Don’t let the haters win. The more you be yourself, the more you shine your light, the more successful you become... there will always be forces that try and tear you down. Know your worth. Love yourself enough to let that shit go. It’s not easy. Not at all. I have to remind myself of this whenever I get caught up in the drama of working for myself and building Backcountry Yoga. It can take every ounce of strength I have to not give in to the fight. Know yourself, trust your mission and continue to move full force ahead. We don’t need others to believe in us if we can just believe in ourselves. The love and support you get from your community is really just the bonus 💕 So get fierce on this Thursday. Stay strong. Move along. Know We’re all going through the same thing #backcountryyoga #staystrong #yougotthis #entrepreneur #workhard #worksmart #knowyourworth
One of my favorite pieces of running Backcountry Yoga retreats are the friendships that emerge. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to receive emails, texts, and messages, letting me know that a group of you are heading out on your very own, self lead adventure! Our retreats are here to empower you to get outside! We love when you join us, but we also love when you spread your wings and fly :) Shout to all the people in our community who have made lasting friendships and continue to take their practice outside!!! 💕💕💕#backcountry #backcountryyoga
It was such an honor to lead a group of young girls into the woods for a yoga hike adventure this weekend! Thank you @elevate.youth.boston & @swsgboston for the incredible work you do, and for getting us involved. Nature is empowering for all ages, but especially for our youth. ・・・
Take a deep breath and reach for the sky. We had a great hiking & nature yoga trip this morning with @swsgboston — A huge thank you to @backcountryyoga !
5 days. 4 nights. 16 hours of Wilderness First Aid Training. Relentless mosquitos. Incredible vegan food. Instant friendships. Hard conversations. Primitive Wilderness Skills. Wild Foraging. Yoga every damn day. You all are such an inspiration to me!!! I can’t wait to see everything you create. Congratulations to the newly certified BCY Yoga Guides of 2018!!! #backcountry #backcountryyoga #wilderness #outdooryoga
Before I go to bed... I’m just going to leave this photo right here and say that the past 5 days have been an incredible experience. I am so blessed. 🤗 It was an honor to bring this group of people together to learn, connect, and inspire. Here you can get a little glimpse of us working on our backcountry fire starting skills with magnesium strikers and and hand made poplar wood nests curtesy of @gr8ful_j !! So many things to share in the next days!!! Happy Monday #backcountryyoga Thank you @ntnretreats!
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions .-Olivor Wendell Holmes . “ I’m heading up to Maine to lead our very first 5 day intensive Backcountry Yoga Teacher Training & Wilderness First Aid Certification Course! It seems like just yesterday that I was piecing this training together. So excited and grateful for everyone and everything that has gotten our brand to this point! See you all so very soon :) Rain, shine, bugs, and all We’ll come through the other side a little changed, and a little more ourselves. #backcountryyoga photography by @ohhathenaa
