I just started taking Yoga classes in The City a little over a month ago. I was worried that this Yoga Hike was going to leave me in the dirt & not in a good "Child's Pose" (I think that's what I'm talking about) way. Instead, there were butterflies, a rainbow, one very adorable schnoodle, a park I never knew existed & an amazing instructor. And while the schnoodle, Sophie, alone is worth the trip over the bay, I'll be going back b/c of Domonick. I never felt out of my element, I enjoyed every breath I took, & my body was worked. But not in a bad way, in a good "oh there's that muscle" type of way. The next day I was able to go dancing from dusk 'til dawn. Literally. But that's another story, err, review.

I just don't have the vocab to do justice to Domonick, the gift he has for body work, yoga, & making one nervous beginner very excited & not at all nervous for the next time.

I??m a city girl who had never done yoga without a mat, much less outdoors, and I really didn't know what to expect. Following Domonick through the redwoods was so peaceful, as he dropped pearls of Eastern wisdom on us like flower petals and gently guided our meditative hike. Some butterflies joined our practice, and I got so swept away into a Snow White state of zen that I couldn??t stop smiling. And just when I thought it couldn??t get better, I looked skyward on one of our final poses, a backbend, to see a rainbow overhead. All that fresh air and good energy was pure yoga bliss, and a great hands-on lesson in how yoga can reconnect us to our bodies, our minds, and the beauty of the world around us. Domonick is a very special teacher, and this class is a very special treat!

I've experienced Domonick's world-class massages before, and his more traditional yoga classes, so I knew I was in for a treat when I took my first Yoga Hike. But I had no idea how "in my body" I'd feel as a result! The Hike I joined focused on grounding and the root chakra. The next night I went out dancing and felt more connected to the earth and to my body -- more grounded by an exponential amount -- than I've ever felt before. It was a transformative experience, highly recommended.
