Hike and Yoga Series

Connect with nature.  Connect with yourself.

Hike and Yoga series will start up again in the spring when the weather is warmer, hopefully by April.  Stay Tuned! We will explore beautiful areas around the Hudson Valley, breathe in fresh air, listen to the sounds of nature, and most importantly stretch our bodies, minds and hearts.  Each class will incorporate some walking meditation, yoga, hiking, nature therapy with plenty of time to socialize with friends or meet new people.

This is a great hybrid class for those who like yoga and want to get outdoors, or for hikers who want to learn how to integrate yoga into their hiking.

The hikes last 2 hours and cost $25 per person, and must be paid for in advance.  There are no refunds but the hike can be transferred to another person if you can’t make it.  If the class is cancelled due to weather you can get a refund or choose to have credit for use at a later date.

Pre-Registration is required.  Visit Eventbrite to buy your ticket.

Ever go for a walk but can’t remember anything you saw? Or were too busy composing emails?  Yoga teacher and personal trainer Krystal Ford will take you on an hour long hike at the West Point Foundry Preserve and use some yoga and nature based meditations to help you be fully present.  A great way to learn how to tune out the world of endless emails and texts and focus on what is directly in front of you.  We will end our hike at the Cold Spring Apothecary and finish off our conversation with some tea. Each participate will receive both CSA tea and skincare samples to take home.

We will meet at the Cold Spring Apothecary, 75 Main Street, Cold Spring, NY.  Buy tickets here.

Bachlorette Party Hike and Yoga

Treat the bride-to-be to a Hike and Yoga.

Here’s what one bridesmaid has to say about Hike and Yoga  “I planned a hike and yoga retreat with Krystal for a friend’s bachelorette party. We weren’t sure what to expect, and were beyond pleasantly surprised. Krystal is very knowledgeable of the area and was able to recommend several options for different styles of hikes, from a scenic farm walk to a rigorous mountain climb. She was flexible enough to change our plans to a different location at the last minute due to weather. It was so relaxing to combine nature, hiking and yoga. The guided yoga at various points of the hike made it an extra special experience for the bride and everyone involved. Krystal even brought a local snack for us at the end! I can’t recommend Mountain River Yoga enough!”
