Minnesota is a midwestern state in the US, bordering Canada and Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes. It is renowned for its breathtaking scenery, magnificent forests, beautiful prairieland and sparkling blue lakes dotted around the state.
This three day trip with our Remarkable Transformer, Andrew Boddicker and yoga instructor and wilderness guide, Michelle Wilson, will guide you through yoga practices and peaceful walking along the Root River Trail. Yoga and walking in the wilderness awakens and deepens our connection to ourselves, each other and nature.
You will have a choice of two accommodation options. The first is a bed in the specially made Bunk Bus – each bunk area has a narrow twin spring mattress, outlet, light, and privacy curtain. Or there are private tents that can accommodate one, two, or four people. They are furnished with a bed(s), electricity, a light, fan, and stool and are taken down and set up each night at an additional cost.
Throughout the three days, food is catered, made fresh, or you will have a meal at a local restaurant.
The walking route weaves over the Root River, through valleys, quaint towns, and along bluffs, and much of it is shaded by large trees, providing excellent protection on hot summer days. Distances will vary each day and can range from five to 13 miles. The majority of the trail is a converted railway and as such, is more or less level for the majority of the time. Two short portions of the trail have some steep inclines and the entire distance is paved allowing for safe, unobstructed walking.
