|Yoga & Climbing Camp offered for women on May 2|
The program is called Yoga & Climbing Camp for Women and is for ages 18 and older. Under the direction of Park Naturalist Molly Postlewait, participants will learn to use the power of ancient yoga movements to discover their strength as a climber.
"Climbing and yoga are similar in that they can both be intimidating, but they are both empowering activities and we will be amazed at what we find we can do," Postlewait said. She added that both activities use graceful motions and require and help build flexibility and strength.
The day will start with intensive stretching and body awareness exercises, followed by climbing on elements of TimberRidge's Hawk's Nest Climbing Tower, and concluding with more stretching exercises. From beginning to experienced, climbers will get to choose their own level of challenge. Participants should bring a sack lunch.
