From The Introduction

When I Started Practicing Yoga, I Saw Little Connection Between My Yoga Mat And The Woods I Was Active, But I Lacked Endurance. I Spent Nearly Four Years In Alaska’s Outdoor Playgrounds. I Built Strength During The Summer Hiking And In The Winter Skiin, But The First Ski Or Hike Of Each Season Was Always Agony.

The Connection Between My Mat And The Woods Is Obvious To Me Now. Hikers Live To Summit A Coveted Peak, To Hear The Crunch Of Undergrowth On A Quiet Trail, Or To Tax Themselves Physically Via Distance. A Yoga Practice Can Support All Of Those Goals And Surprise You With Some Additional Benefits, Including The Deeper Understanding Of Why You Love Being Out In Nature.

If You Are Looking To Expand Your Yoga Practice Beyond What I Share In This Book, You Will Find Tips On Finding A Local Yoga Class And Style Suited To You—as Well As A Yoga Community—to Continue To Bring The Benefits Of Yoga Into Not Only Your Hiking Life, But Your Whole Life.
