Smoke, sticks and stones

There is a certain flavor that only be attained by preparing food over the open fire and directly on hot rocks. Just as each rock is unique, each meal will have a distinctive flavor for it. Slowly smoking potatoes for hours, roasted veggies caramelized on granite, driftwood baked fish from the creek and in the morning a our over coffee; these are some of the most magical moment that can happen when we gather to cook on rocks.

Mari’s yoga is for everyone, beginner or advanced, women and men alike!

Stretching your body after the hike and focusing on your breathe will allow you to be present within yourself and your surroundings. The closeness to the elements supports this greatly! You are encouraged to practice without a mat, straight on the ‘flat’ big rock, it works! Not only does direct contact with the earth allow for more grounding, but slight unevenness will make you more aware of the position of your body and may add an extra element to focus on besides your breathe.

While encouraging her students to touch upon their personal limits, Mari always reminds to keep in mind we are working with the body and breath, not against it. She encourages her students to have a gentle curiosity of what the sensations in their body are, rather than aiming for a pose to look a certain way. Besides the physical bending, folding and twisting, yoga on rocks may also stretch your mind by asking you to challenge your beliefs about yourself, your body and your consciousness.
