Hiking and yoga go together like peas and carrots, like wine and cheese, like foot massages and longer foot massages. Hiking yoga is a unique way to mindfully connect your body to the earth while experiencing one of the most beautiful trails in the Los Angeles area. You will hike through Topanga State Park where the Chumash natives thrived for thousands of years. You will summit the mountain at a prehistoric shamanic site called Eagle Rock where you will salute the sun and the Pacific Ocean. If you love hiking, you will see some of the finest landscape Los Angeles has to offer. If you love yoga, you will feel the power of the mountain in your practice at the nexus of the energetic vortex that is Topanga. Approx. 2 1/2 hours: 1 1/2 hrs hiking, 1/2 hr yoga, and time to explore & photograph Eagle Rock. The hike is 4 miles round-trip (2 uphill, 2 downhill). Moderately challenging. ATHLETIC SHOES ARE REQUIRED. Ground cloth will be provided. Bring a yoga mat or let me know if you need one. Snack & water provided. Note: If you don't see a preferred date listed, please contact host directly to request a date.
I am a native Californian, desert explorer and student of ancient cultures. I have a passion for historic landscapes and the stories they tell. I guide people on time travel adventures that let them see the world through the eyes of past peoples, whose footsteps blazed our trail. I help you experience the most beautiful and historic trails Los Angeles has to offer.

Yoga practice will be under the open sky, atop the Santa Monica Mountains, with a view to the Pacific Ocean. Topanga Canyon is considered an energetic vortex because of how fire and water merge where the sky (mountains) meet the sea at the base of this verdant canyon. You will hike the mountain ridge where sandstone monuments meet the sky, to Eagle Rock peak, the energetic epicenter of Topanga, where yoga begins.
Meet near bathrooms at Trippet Ranch parking lot. Parking is $10 or park on the street outside the entrance and walk in. ATHLETIC SHOES ARE REQUIRED to participate. Signing Liability Waiver required.
