The cabin-like building has a washroom and features huge panes of glass to lookout into the trees. We will leave our belongings inside the building before setting out on our hike.

Q: What is Yin yoga? I’m a beginner.

Yin yoga is accessible to all. It is a very slow-paced, relaxing style of yoga that aims to release physical, fascial and mental tension. Poses are often deep stretches down on the mat that are held for longer periods of time with the support of blocks and blankets. Drifting off to sleep is allowed!

No! Your park admission is included in the ticket purchase to this event, so you can make a day of it and spend as much time in nature as you like! Just present your ID or proof of purchase at the gate upon entry.
