Join us for a fun-filled campout at Bald Mountain in Oakland County. On this two day trip, you’ll meet a fun group of people and dip your toes in the outdoors. You’ll stretch your legs (and the rest of your body!) and learn about the history of the area. We’ll admire the beautiful spring colors on an all day relaxed pace hike followed by a rejuvenating yoga session. After stretching, we’ll have a delicious meal incorporating local ingredients, then enjoy time around a bonfire.
When morning comes, it will be time for another yoga session to welcome the day. Then a leisurely breakfast, perhaps a morning walk at the lake, and we’ll say goodbye. The focus of the trip will be making connections, trying out yoga, and enjoying the spring beauty of the park.

Our cabin is nestled in the woods with a gorgeous view of the lake. There are bunk beds, a wood stove, water pump, and an outhouse. Ample onsite parking is available (a recreation passport is needed).
We'll meet at the cabin in the morning, get introduced to the group, pack up our backpacks, and do a little stretching before hitting the trail. We'll hike for approximately 5-8 miles, at a moderate effort. Bald Mountain is fairly hilly but we will travel at a relaxed pace.
Lunch will be on the trail! We’ll find a scenic spot to refuel, stretch our legs, and share our thoughts.
When we get back to the cabin, it will be time to relax a bit and have a snack. There will be a yoga session followed by dinner and a bonfire.
Morning yoga session to start the day off right, followed by breakfast and perhaps a short walk to the nearby lake before saying goodbye.

Taylor has been practicing yoga for ten years now, deciding to become a Registered Yoga Teacher last year. For her, yoga started out as a way to become more flexible, but it grew into something more over the years; leading her to attend a yoga retreat in Bali. She loves trying out different styles of yoga and finding the most useful aspects of each. She has taken a wide variety of classes from acroyoga to gentle. To Taylor, yoga is a way to give time to herself and treat her body right. She is excited to combine hiking and yoga, two of her favorite things, and to meet all of you!
