Half Day LA Hikes
Studies show that spending at least 2 hours a week outside, in nature, has significant mental and physical health benefits! These shorter half day hikes, around 4-7 miles in length, are a nice compliment to your yoga and wellness journey and offer a chance to explore new places with fun, like minded people.
Whether you are an experienced hiker looking for a short adventure nearby, or if you have always wanted to hit the trails but don’t know where to start, these experiences are perfect for any level and close to LA.
Seven Summits of SoCal Challenge
We have selected 7 peaks surrounding Los Angeles that offer a challenging wilderness experience. These represent the highest peaks in 5 different counties and 4 ranges, plus two amazing second place peaks to round out the seven.
Difficulty levels range from Moderate to Hard but all of them reward us with amazing views and a deep connection to nature and each other. You don’t need to be an experienced outdoors person to enjoy these trails, but you do need to be reasonably fit. The hikes have been arranged in order of difficulty so that your hiking fitness improves as you move toward the more challenging and remote routes.

Big Sur Getaway June 9th-12th 2023
Are you ready for a relaxing getaway to one of the classic California destinations?
You will begin each day with a meditative morning yoga practice to ground you firmly in the moment and prepare you for another glorious adventure. You days will be spent strolling among the trees and along the ocean, lined with beaches and cliffs. Afternoons bring time to relax, reflect and perhaps indulge in a massage! Each evening you will be filled with awe as you watch another sunset painting the sky with orange and purple light as it sinks below the rugged cliffs of the pacific.
The night sky is filled with stars as you gaze into the milky way, almost stunned by the sheer number of stars shining brightly in this remote location away from the light pollution of the city. The stillness of the night will calm your mind as you are surrounded with the sounds of ocean waves, the night creatures going about their way, the breeze in the redwood canopy and intermittent silence. So peaceful, you will feel a million miles away from daily life, even though it’s just up coast!
Join Erin Grossman, Kevin Montgomery and Robert Bahedry for this refreshing long weekend getaway!
