Exciting Partnerships

Guys, I have a really exciting announcement!

As we’ve been working on planning the thru-hike, we’ve been trying to think of ways to give back to the trail community.  We are getting most of our hike sponsored, so we want to pay it forward.  We also want to raise awareness about the trail and get people outside.

We LOVE yoga. We strongly believe in the healing powers of yoga.  We also use yoga to train for other sports that we enjoy.  We practice together almost every night.

So what better way for us to give a unique gift to the trail community than to use yoga to raise money?!

We’re are very excited to announce that we will be partnering with Sage Rountree to raise money for Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (FMST) as Carrboro Yoga Company‘s fall Karma Connection.  The proceeds from the three donation-based classes in September, October, and November will be donated to FMST.  We will be attending the October 19 class and will speak about the trail and our hike.  Townsend Bertram has donated an awesome prize package from their rental program – gear for a weekend away for 2 people (a tent, 2 sleeping bags, 2 sleeping pads, and 2 packs), a $150 value – that we’ll be giving away at the October 19 class.

We are also excited to announce that we’ll be partnering with Anna Levesque of Girls At Play to hold a donation-based restorative yoga practice at a Blue Ridge Parkway scenic overlook in Asheville.  We’re still hashing out the details of this event, we’ll post them as soon as we figure them out.

We hope we’ll see you at one of these events!

Want to try partner yoga?

Interested in trying that partner yoga thing?  Don’t know where to start?  If you’re in the Charlotte area, you’re in luck!

One of our favorite local studios, Moga, has a partner yoga workshop coming up April 17.  This clinic is a “Date Night,” so there’s yoga 5:30 – 7, and a social with food and drinks 7-7:30.  And its a steal at $40 per couple!

If you have any questions, email the studio at  Hope to see you there?

March Partner Yoga

One of our favorite activities for “Date Night” is partner yoga – when we can find a class or workshop that is!  Lucky for us, an instructor at one of our local yoga studios, Moga, shares our enthusiasm for partner yoga.  We’ve been to two of Christina’s workshops so far, and can’t wait for the next one! What is partner yoga?  Partner yoga uses a partner to assist each posture.  This assist is typically either for stability or to deepen the stretch.  You might also see some acro yoga, where you need two people to achieve the posture, with one acting as the base and one as the flyer.  Other than the fun of getting to fly, practicing with a partner provides an intimate connection that we can take off the mat into our daily lives. Check out some of the photos from the March clinic:
