Yosemite Journeys for Mind, Body and Spirit
Yosemite is a world-heritage site, celebrated as one of the most sacred places on earth. Our weekend camping retreats and backpack trips harness the transformative power of nature to inspire deep connection with your own inner wisdom. We use the tools of meditation, yoga and creative expression in nature to invite true empowerment. All outdoor and yoga skill levels welcome. Scholarships are available. Course size is limited.
Yosemite Journeys with Balanced Rock in 2014 include Summer Solstice Backpacking Retreats, Yoga of Food Culinary Camping Courses, Yoga & Ayurveda Retreats among others. Many of our instructors and guides are Yosemite locals with deep knowledge of the outdoors and natural history. Each retreat is staffed by at least one Yoga Alliance certified RYT-200 yoga instructor, and at least one Wilderness First Responder. Every Balanced Rock experience includes a delectable menu that is based on organic, local ingredients whenever possible.
Balanced Rock is synonymous with yoga in Yosemite! If you are here visiting the area on your own, join us at our weekly donation-based community yoga classes or our annual day-long workshop, Yoga Jambalaya. Additionally, as a nonprofit organization we are proud to serve a range of different communities, including establishing the Yosemite Youth Expedition for local at-risk youth (now in its fifth year), and the country's first Women of Color backpacking program. This year marks the tenth anniversary of our Women of Color retreats and we will celebrate in style in Yosemite’s high country!
Join us in Yosemite this summer to celebrate your connection with nature and spirit. Check out our full schedule of courses online at balancedrock.org
Balanced Rock is a Yosemite-based nonprofit and our mission is to inspire balance and well-being through deep connection to nature and spirit.
