Itinerary

*On each day there will be time set aside for mindfulness, self-reflection, and journaling. We will also explore the area around our cabin and relaxing on the beautiful property we will share for the week.

I have so much planned for you at Yosemite National Park. The first few days will be spent acclimating ourselves to daily hikes and altitude adjustments. We will save the most difficult hike for the last day. Each day we will spend time connecting to the great outdoors in the Sierra Nevada mountain range and each other. You will learn to challenge yourself both physically and mentally. You will explore ways to help you find the peace you have been searching for in your day to day life and embrace yourself. YOU were created to be worthy and shine as a human being. 

Day 1:

Arrive in San Francisco, CA no later than 12:00pmPST -NOON (We will establish a designated pick-up spot later-this is for safety.)

We will take a scenic drive from San Francisco to Yosemite National Park. We will stop at a vineyard for our first dinner together. We will also stop to explore the Wild West during the gold mining era and visit the oldest saloon in California. Once we arrive at out cozy cabin near Yosemite, we will unpack and get to know one another.

Day 2:

After a lovely breakfast, we will head out to view Tuolumne Grove and explore the Giant Sequoias. We will have an easy hike on this day. Approximately 2.5 miles round trip. You can look at the map here.

While exploring in nature we will spend time concentrating on breathing techniques and learning to focus on the beauty in front of us.

Day 3:

We will enjoy a healthy breakfast together. Then experience another great day of the great outdoors in Yosemite National Park. We will catch a sunrise view and complete the Mirror Lake Loop. This should be an easy 5 mile hike with breathtaking views. This will take about 2-3 hours for the full loop. The altitude change will be approximately 100 feet  and is considered to be an easy to moderate hike. If you would like to read up on this hike, you can read about it in the link here. 

We will have a fun filled picnic while enjoying the scenic views of Mirror Lake.

Day 4:

We will spend the morning kayaking in the beautiful Bass Lake. We will plan to have a relaxing picnic near the lake. You can check out the lake here.

Depending on the road opening by our arrival, we will visit the Indian Village of the Ahwahnee. We will explore the Native American lifestyles and the Miwok.

Day 5 & 6:

We will spend more time outdoors exploring Yosemite National Park. We will evaluate how we feel and choose the hikes that best suites our needs for these days. On these days you may choose to spend time separately from the group to relax and reflect on positive things to help you once you return home. I want this trip to be something you can use to level up your normal day to day activities.  Find ways to make it more meaningful and positive. I will challenge you to always look for the good in each situation. By doing so, we will be retraining our brains to make the very best out of each set of circumstances.

Day 7: 

This will be an optional hike due to the level of difficulty. You may also choose to do a portion of the hike but not all of it. We will wake up early to hit the John Muir Trail or Mist Trail headed to Vernal and Nevada Falls. We will take the time needed to insure safety and enjoy the jaw-dropping views along the way.
