    -By 10:15 we will carpool to Round Valley Regional Preserve. This stunning nature trail is only a few miles from Crystal Bowl.
    -From 10:30 to 12:00 we will enjoy a slow paced, moderate hike through beautiful hills and valleys. There will be time to enjoy your surrounding, enjoy meaningful conversation, and take photos.
    -From 12 to 1 the group will enjoy lunch, included with ticket cost, at a small picnic area that sits beautifully at the base of rolling hills, with a perfect view of Mount Diablo above the hills. A healthy, protein rich, plant-based lunch and snacks will be provided.
    -During lunch our group will play fun games aimed to give each person a chance to introduce themselves and set big goals in a silly, laugh-out-loud way!
    -From 1:pm to 2:pm Learn to connect with nature through mindful movements. This heart centered yoga class will teach the traditional movements that ease stress and anxiety while building strength, flexibility, and balance.
    -At 2:pm we will enjoy a hike back to the trail head. It is a 3 mile walk back, making for 6 miles total for the day.
    -At 3:15 we will close with a gratitude ceremony. This is a brief opportunity to be thankful for yourself, new friends, new opportunities, and all the good that surrounds you.
    This powerful experience is lead by Hope Desroches. For most of her life Hope managed anxiety and depression with binge eating. She was a big kid, over 250 pounds through high school, and over 325 pounds through most of her adult life. In 2017, at 36 years old, she discovered, for herself, the genuine and life changing powers of hiking and yoga.
    Through a combination of frequent hiking and practicing yoga, Hope finally found the discipline and confidence to manage her over eating disorder and release 175 pounds naturally.
    In 2018 Hope felt so empowered from her life changing transformation that she was ready to inspire others! She started classes at the National Academy of Sports Medicine in February 2018, and is now a certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor, nutrition specialist and yoga instructor!
    Don’t miss this first ever opportunity to find you inner strength, feel fully supported, and start on new, fast tracked path to your success!
    Please bring plenty of drinking water, sunscreen, a yoga mat, comfortable walking shoes, and dress for warm weather. Our host will bring a wagon so you will not need to carry your yoga mats during the hike.
    We can’t wait to meet you!
