call of the wild...
I grew up in summer camps, more specifically backcountry horse riding camps where we slept in teepees and salted leeches from legs after cooling off in the nearby water hole. No electricity, or running water. It was rough but it was fuuuuuuun.
So when I heard of CAMP YOGA I was intrigued. When I was asked to teach for the upcoming Canmore campout, Sept 16-18 at Camp Chief Hector, I gave a heck YES!!
What's camp yoga? Here's an exert from their website...
You thought you were too old to share a bunk in the woods. You thought yoga festivals were too expensive and too far away.
Just when you’d lost all hope, then came Camp Yoga.
Sleepover camp. Remember what it felt like? Cabins, bon fires, burnt marshmallows and scraped knees. Kids gone wild. But Camp Yoga isn’t your childhood summer camp - it’s got wine.
With activities all day, errrrryday, our goal is unite your inner camp life kid with your mature, elevated self, on home soil. Yoga, ninja training, epic naps, pilates, group runs, high rope course, hiking and, did we mention, wine?
Let us show you that community starts when you wake up: roll out of bed and share a meal at large tables with friends you haven't met yet. Crush some power sweats to shed the unwanted. Hold hands in savasana to share your energy. Tip back some casual drinks as you sing along to live music.
