What you'll do

Imagine walking up a mountain, catching a glimpse of big horn sheep or an indigenous lizard or a colorful bird. There's so much wildlife out there if you know where to look.. We'll hike a bit, then lay down our mats for a sweet yoga practice. Walking back down, we'll be more alert to enjoy the gorgeous desert plants and scenery. It's an epic experience that is truly unforgettable!

First, we meet at the trailhead. Hikes are generally 45 minutes into the mountain. We have hikes available for the novice hiker as well as the rockstar hikers. Once we hit our "studio", we'll unroll our mats for a 40 minute yoga practice tailored to your needs. We'll snap a bunch of cool photos, instagram worthy. Then we head back the way we came in where the food or drink fantasies can motivate us every step of the way.
Other things to note
It's best to have a chat before we venture out so I can know the level of hiking you're looking for and what type of yoga class you'd like. I can guarantee an unique and amazing desert yoga experience

HI, I'm April. I'm a 200 Hr RYT certified Yoga Instructor and have owned a yoga studio in the desert for 9 years where I have over 5000 hours of teaching experience plus lead Teacher Training programs. I've been leading yoga hikes, workshops and international retreats these last 9 years. Although I grew up in the Midwest, the desert has been my home for over 22 years and hiking in the mountains is a passion of mine. I've discovered secret trails that aren't on any map. Come hike and practice yoga with me for a truly unique experience and learn a bit about the beauty of our desert.

Where you'll be

Depending on the level of hike you're looking for, there are many trails that are amazing in the desert. All offer spectacular views and opportunities to view the wildlife. If you're up for a challenge we start with a difficult trail that starts uphill then levels out for our amazing open air studio. If you'd rather meander through a more level trail, I've got the perfect spot for that type of hike. The most unique way to experience the desert!

The Full Moon Yoga Hike was wonderful! April led us on a beautiful hike, followed by an awesome yoga class on a level area in view of the full moon. Highly recommended! Everything about it was awesome!!

Amazing outdoors experience with April. She took us on an amazing hike and yoga at the top of the hills, it was truly a unique and memorable experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Palm Springs!

This is a really worthwhile experience. The trail up wouldn’t be appropriate for anyone who’s not fit or entirely steady on their feet, so keep that in mind.

I cannot think of a better way to have spent the full moon equinox while in Palm Springs. The hike to our yoga spot was at times challenging but never overly so and the views were awesome. Doing yoga in the mountains with the full super moon in a spectacular setting was a terrific way to usher in the spring equinox. Cheers to April for her vision and for being both a superb guide and instructor.

A great choice for a group hike for those visiting or living locally. April was helpful and fun and was able to accommodate all the various requests from the group. She knows the local trails really well and led us on a wonderful full moon evening.

The full moon yoga hike was amazing! We were surrounded by beautiful wildflowers and the mountains were so green. Just as we started our yoga practice the full moon came up and it was spectacular! April was very attentive to all of us as she led us on the hike and through our yoga practice. Thank you April for creating such a wonderful experience!
