Saturday:
Begin your morning with an energizing Vinyasa class incorporating some partner poses. After this yoga session, we will gather for a group breakfast and fresh roasted coffee. Spend some time with your partner in your room or common areas before Hisega Adventure Lodge staff shuttles us to the trailhead for an optional group mindfulness hike. Don't worry if you're not an avid hiker — this hike will be suitable for most fitness and skill levels. During our time on the trail, we will reflect and practice some mindfulness exercises. We will also enjoy our lunch out on the trail as well, weather permitting. After our hike guests can take advantage of the lodge property and soak up some down time. Later that afternoon we will come together for a restorative yoga class and meditation, and eat dinner as a group. Weather permitting, we will head to the fire circle after dinner, for a discussion and fire ceremony.

Tips for Your Experience:
It all starts with attitude. Yogis of all skill levels can enjoy our classes, but that doesn't mean that there won't be challenges. Partner poses can feel difficult for those who haven't done them before. Likewise, guided meditations can sometimes feel uncomfortable — Wade and Clarissa will do their best to help you make the most of these experiences in the most enjoyable way possible. Let us know if you're new to hiking — our group hike will be appropriate for all skill and fitness levels, and we will ensure that you're comfortable and safe during our time on the trail. Most importantly, come with an open mind and positive attitude. Some of the weekend's experiences may be new to you, but don't let that stop you from making the most out of the weekend!

Location:
Our adventures are all based out of the Hisega Adventure Lodge, a 111 year old lodge in the easternmost section of the Black Hills National Forest, twenty minutes from Rapid City Center. Here you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature — the wind blowing through the ponderosa pines and the relaxing babble of Rapid Creek as it flows along the property. Our group hikes all take place in the beautiful Black Hills National Forest, on designated trails. We provide transportation to and from all trailheads during your stay.
