Yoga in Zion National Park
Within each of us is the essential energy which motivates our physical movement each day. That essence, or prana, is revitalized through practices such as Yoga, the ancient path to unity of body, mind and spirit. We follow the mantra; healthy body, healthy mind. Healthy mind, healthy spirit. Healthy spirit, healthy family and community.
Zion is an amazing place to practice Yoga, because the raw energy of the land is so poignant that it quickly elevates our own energy levels. Even simple conscious movements are amplified in their affect.

Adventure Yoga Quest ( half or full day )
The rugged wilderness surrounding Zion National Park offers remote exploration of deep canyons and epic heights. Are you ready to explore yourself in the same way? We all have boundaries of fear and physical capacity. The guides at Zion Guru have made a habit of exploring their own and will guide you as your boundary approaches, rappelling off a cliff or climbing a rock wall.
Yoga, mindfulness, meditation...these are all synonyms for connecting your physical, mental and emotional experiences. Harnessing this single-pointed awareness allows us to explore why we feel such doubt in our capabilities or the feeling of retreat when we are triggered by an uncomfortable situation. You will be lead on a mindful exploration of physical and internal terrain. Allow yourself the space to work through your boundaries under the guidance of a highly trained professional.
Your day will begin with conscious movement led by your guide, a professionally trained certified Hatha yoga instructor (Yoga Alliance), in a remote location offering stunning views of Zion National Park. By being open with your guide, he or she will design a custom adventure congruent with your goals and hopes for the session. Choose between canyoneering, rock climbing, or even climbing Angel’s Landing when you never thought you could.
FOR RESERVATIONS: Please contact us so we can help you customize your Adventure Yoga Quest (half or full day).
Yoga mats are optional, and we encourage the natural contact with the earth, soil, and rock. We have yoga mats for rent for an additional $5/person.
