Wellness Wednesdays are a mid-week opportunity to check in with YOU. Learn about how making subtle adjustments in your day-to-day habits –  wellness, fitness, eating, and thinking – can transform your life.

Yoga & Hiking: When Two Worlds Entwine

Excerpted and adapted from thehikingclub.com
By Alistair Crompton

Studies have shown that hiking offers some parallel benefits to yoga bringing you not only physical but also mental well-being benefits.

The great thing about yoga is it offers total body conditioning, incorporating strength work, aerobic exercise, flexibility training, and stretching. Like hiking, yoga brings you into the present moment and can be part of a soulful practice.

The importance of maintaining a strong and flexible body for improved physical fitness while hiking in the mountains goes without saying. But many of us take it for granted that we need to keep our bodies in good condition to help us enjoy the sports we do and love.
