Yoga and skiing in Yellowstone: What could be better? Come to your mat each morning with awareness, and allow asana and pranayama to deepen your connection to self and to Yellowstone. You will strengthen and stretch ski muscles while improving balance and concentration. Days continue with afternoons on skis, perhaps gliding on groomed surfaces or creating your own tracks through powdery snow. Learn about Yellowstone’s history, geology, and wildlife ecology and develop personal connections to winter and Yellowstone. Evenings will focus on Yellowstone history and yoga philosophy. Catering included.
