We got you—and you can even wear your PJs. Learn how to backpack from the comfort of home (or wherever you get WiFi) with our live virtual online backpacking for beginners’ workshop, just for women! It’s the perfect introduction or refresher on how to go backpacking, taught by an expert Explorer Chick guide.

If you’ve booked (or are still considering) one of Explorer Chick’s backpacking trips—or heck, just want to see if backpacking is the right hobby for you—this live, two-hour workshop is an ideal introduction or next step.

Oh, and you know it’s not an Explorer Chick adventure without our classic SHE-nanigans—virtual or not! Come along as we transform your computer screen into a backpacking adventure lesson, all while you enjoy a cocktail from the comfort of the couch! You’ll even receive a few camp-inspired cocktail recipes leading up to your workshop. (Hello 👋 Punch O’ Pine, Campfire Sour, and Cranberry Margarita)

In just two-hours, learn the all the backpacking for beginner’s essentials, from pre-departure to packing up camp—and everything in between. Watch live demonstrations of packing, cooking, setting up camp, meal prep, clothing, safety, filtering water, gear, equipment, and more. Yes! Everything you need to know, without having to dig through the endless blogs, forums, and books. Or worse, have it man-splained to you by the well-meaning males in your life.

You’ll also receive a copy of our very own Backpacking Field Guide. The Field Guide covers the backpacking essentials covered in the workshop, so you’ll have a handy reference of your future camping trips.

Get Answers to Your Toughest Backpacking Questions

Should I be concerned about bears? Where can I find deals on equipment? Is it cool if I leave a big dump in the woods? Ever had these thoughts, but were too afraid to ask? Fear not! Everything you ever wanted to learn about backpacking (especially as a woman) will be answered during a reserved Q&A session. (And we LOVE to answer your questions! Even the gross stuff!) So ask away, then hit the trails as a confident and empowered backpacker. Each workshop is limited to 20 Explorer Chicks. This means a small class setting where you will feel comfortable and supported, no matter your previous outdoor experience.

Yoga, Meditation + Journaling in Chillicothe OH

2467 Rocky Rd


Please visit the Explorer Chick website for full details and to book! with the link below. Your spot is not confirmed until you do so.


Too much coffee. Too little sleep. Mindless phone-scrolling or Netflix binging. Feeling bored and unfulfilled. Seems like the negative side effects of our disconnected day-to-day lifestyle can catch up with us before we know it. Lacking for many of us (probably without even realizing it) is human interaction and real conversations. That's why we've put together this Mini Adventure—to help us all become more present and experience more awareness in our everyday lives. So join us for a morning filled with yoga, meditation, journaling and the types of meaningful conversations that only happen with other Explorer Chicks (while drinking something sparkly, of course 🥂).

Yoga, Meditation and Real Connection in Nature

Think about your typical group fitness class. You walk in the door at the gym, head to your assigned space, and that's that. Sure, you might work up a good sweat—but do you ever leave feeling any more connected to yourself or the others around you? This experience is different. Coupling yoga, mediation, journaling and open conversation with the soothing backdrop of the forest, you'll learn to reconnect and rebalance.

Vinyasa Yoga Session and Guided Meditation

According to Yoga Journal, the word "vinyasa" can be translated as "arranging something in a special way." This means during our 75-minute vinyasa yoga class, each movement from pose to pose will be coordinated with the breath. Expect to be challenged during this first part of our event, but with plenty of modifications and space for them along the way. These pose adjustments make this class perfect for all experience levels. After yoga, take time to cool down on your mat with a relaxing guided meditation.

BYOB Brunch with Guided Group Journaling

Once we've completed our vinyasa yoga session, grab your packed brunch and beverages and head back to the mats for a group journaling session. We'll take the time to simply sit in this beautiful space, surrounded by nature. Be in the moment. Be with the people around you. Hear their stories—maybe even share a story or two yourself (optional)!

Group Journaling and Open Conversation

Group journaling transforms an enriching experience of solitude into a powerful experience of community. Adventure is defined as taking a risk—here the risk is in the sharing. And while there is power that comes with sharing, there is learning that comes with listening. Practice both and discover more about yourself and others along the way.
As women, we're all on a similar journey and facing many of the same obstacles. We need to come together in a healing way to empower ourselves and each other. Enough cannot be said about the positive benefits of yoga, meditation, journaling and brunch. (Especially brunch.) We hope to see and connect with you at the Dome—we're counting on you to bring the mimosas! 😉

• 75-Minute Vinyasa Yoga Class
• Guided Meditation
• Guided Group Journaling with BYOB Brunch
• Optional group sharing with real connections with real women

You must book through the website to join us on this adventure.
