ARCHES NATIONAL PARK
Arches National Park contains landscape of contrasting colors, land forms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red-rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
The Town of Moab
Visitors from around the world come to the town of Moab to experience sunrise over the towering depths of Canyonlands National Park and sunset in the otherworldly red rock landscape of Arches National Park. Moab’s year-round access to thousands of square miles of amazing red rock landscapes, along with the cool waters of the Colorado River, has made it one of the most sought-after outdoor recreation destinations in the American Southwest.

YOUR TRIP LEADERS
Yoga Teacher Jennie
"The first time I traveled to Moab, I was awe-struck. I had never imagined a place that looked as mesmerizing and inspiring. I've returned to Moab five times to soak up the gifts of it's magnificence, reconnecting with Mother Earth, and reigniting a spirit of adventure. I am excited to combine my favorite passions: a love for the outdoors, hiking through Arches National Park, grounding earth-inspired yoga practices, and community. I began practicing yoga when I was 18 and look forward to sharing yoga asana (postures), yoga nidra (guided meditation), and yoga philosophy across our five-day adventure. Learn more about my teaching experience and philosophy here."
climbing guru Hayden
"I have been climbing for 17 years. My love for the outdoors helped lead me to Colorado College, where I majored in geology. I am now working towards my PhD in geochemistry at Caltech. I study how tectonics and erosion can be powerful controls on climate. I feel lucky to have work that takes me into the field all around the world. While not traveling for work, I still manage to find time to climb often in the Sierra and desert Southwest. I also work part time at my local climbing gym teaching group and private climbing lessons. My passion for teaching and climbing will help ensure a fun, safe, and engaging experience on the rocks in Moab."
