RIDE OM

Yoga + bikes in the Mountains 

OCTOBER 11-14th 2018

Kimberely, British Columbia. Canada. 

No top in sight but I trust it is close as I twist and turn, grinding my way upwards for what feels like forever. Butterflies in the stomach awaken, legs begin to tire, heart pumping, breath heavy. That feeling right after a hard climb when you perch at the peak, that first taste of flow. 

In a split second it's like the work is forgotten and I smile wide soaking in fresh mountain air. The descent begins. There is no thinking or room for distraction but rather a sense of deep affirmation in every cell of my body that in that moment, I am exactly where I need to be, nowhere else. Fully present, connected to Self and Nature. 

I crave this feeling and it soothes my soul. I long for the adventure among the winding trails and wild forests. The golden sun and wind on my skin. The grasp on the handlebars and the sounds of my bike as the gears change from one to another. The grip of time lessens and passion ignites. The laughter, stories, friendships and parking lot shenanigans. Tunes blasting on the drive home, accomplished and satisfied while watching the mountain silhouette as the sun says goodnight. 

That feeling right after a hard climb, time on your mat moving your body, new scenery and time in Nature, a great conversation with friends -- those are moments that matter. When you are in the flow and rhythm of life, embodied, is where we feel most authentically alive! 

Come join us for a weekend away to move your body, clear your mind + feel fully alive. 

Your hosts / guides / teachers / new best friends

jodi

Jodi, dog walker by day, mountain biker….also by day. She lives for the stoke and plans her life around adventure. 10 years ago she was introduced to the sport and she knows the feeling of being stuck in “beginner” status and what it took to get the confidence and skills to get unstuck. She’s ready to share her knowledge, experiences, stories and cannot wait to support the biking culture in a deeper way, especially the newbies. You can find Jodi passionately encouraging (harassing?!) others to get on their bikes, constantly. Happy to ride with the boys and always up for a challenge, her jam is showing the ladies they have what it takes to grind it out, keep it light and accomplish their goals.

jess

Jess is the founder + connection catalyst for Embodied Adventure. She embodies both the Spiritual and Science based practices of Yoga. She aims to integrate asana, meditation, mind-body medicine, visualisation, philosophy, functional movement and somatic awareness as modalities for deeper connection and positive energy flow. She may be wee and compact but she contains big life-force. A juicy conversation and well heated latte bring light to her world even on the darkest day. The big spark inside her ignites others and their unique gifts to the world.  You can expect to flow and move sensually through your practice and feel encouraged to truly express, explore and enjoy your own unique experience. Her classes ebb and flow to create a safe space that is inclusive and accommodating to all levels while she encourages kindness, play and lots of love.  (@jessssleb)
