What we're about
Come connect with important layers of your life – health, friends, nature and community.
We offer a new kind of hiking experience by including yoga breaks. So, not only are you getting a cardio workout, our yoga breaks help you to find balance, strength and stamina. YIKERS get the best of both worlds.
I started this group to meet up with other 'YIKERS', those of us looking to move forward with vigor and cover as much ground as possible, we want to stretch and lengthen every day, not to mention meet new friends. If you’re like me, you like to hike, yoga, cycle , paddle,ski, snowshoe, and squeeze every luscious drop out of life.
If you have any ideas for a meet up get together, please send me a message. I'm open to all adventures.
Member participation is very important in this group. While I encourage everyone with at least a mild interest to sign up and check things out, everyone is required to attend at least 2 events per year to retain their membership.
