This year we will be bringing our gathering to a few sacred spaces in the heart of Hood River, Oregon. Join us for early morning and evening practices at the Valley Amphitheater – a beautiful green space next to a pond tucked into a sea of orchards. This beautiful space is just a 5 minute drive from the center of Downtown and our studio doors. During the heat of Saturday and Sunday afternoons, we will offer sessions at two unique studios in charming center.

In downtown and around the Gorge there are delicious and healthy eateries to meet everyones dietary needs, parks and picnic spaces for relaxing in the shade, and just a short drive away – hiking trails, waterfalls, and natural swimming pools to explore.

  • Swimming~

Please NO SWIMMING in the Cattail pond! If you are looking to cool off during breaks between sessions you are welcome to explore the Columbia and Hood Rivers. Beaches and parks can be located along the waterfront – walking distance from downtown, or you can scout local swimming spots a short drive out of the center. 

  • If you bring it in with you, make sure that it returns with you or finds a “properwaste receptacle” ~

Choose to be mindful about your waste/trash, you can find receptacles near the amphitheater, around downtown, and at the studio.

  • It’s Hot! Make sure you arrive at this event with a full reusable water bottle ~

1243543_409447509161739_4201476_oWe support the local water shed by choosing to refrain from the commercial distribution of bottled water here. We will have a water filter at the studios, and drinking fountains on the waterfront available for you to replenish when needed.

  • Restrooms

If you need to change or relieve yourself, public restrooms are available near the amphitheater along the waterfront, and you will also have access to the restrooms, shower, and changing rooms at the studios in downtown Hood River.  

 

  • 3C385E13-F45B-4BCE-BCCC-D16732C854BBThis is a conscious, sober, Yoga event~

True Nature was created to hold space for a conscious, clear, joy-filled, sattvic event. Please no alcohol or clarity-altering substances – please don’t bring them with you.

  • We are an eco-friendly event honoring ahimsa (non-harming) and shaucha (clarity and cleanliness). As a co mmunity, lets honor this space, town, the land, and ourselves.
