About this Event

Stretch Hike Relax is an event outdoors throughout the southside (city and suburbs) of Chicago.

The event starts with yoga asana (light body stretching), followed by a nature walk (conditions vary per location), and ending with a relaxing guided meditation (yoga nidra).

It's a great event to join with friends, or on your own!

Yoga asana, walking, and yoga nidra are all intended to let you relax into you: notice your experience; embrace your body and mind together through stretching, exploring, and resting.

Just being outdoors can be soothing and relaxing for our body systems. Through using our senses in nature, moving, and being in community, my intention is to help start to build renewal and healing for yourself and others in outdoor spaces.

What else can I expect?

Stretching and meditation will take place in grass/field area. For the asana/yoga stretching, please bring your own exercise mat or blanket if you have. Some mats will be available, first come first serve.
Beginners welcomed, encouraged and expected! Stretches will be gentle and slow, and geared towards getting ready for walking.

For hiking, expect 1.3 miles of walking. Wear shoes that are comfortable for you for this distance. The South Shore trail is a mix of grass/dirt paths, boardwalk, and pavement.

For the yoga nidra/meditation, there will be little to no movement during this activity. You can do this standing, sitting, walking, laying down. Please bring any supplies to be comfortable, such as blanket or mat.
