What is the minimum age to participate in the WANDERS?
For now, the WANDER age is 21 years and older. We may introduce other WANDERS in the future to include the young adult or teen/tween Wild Woman in your life to share the transformative outdoor experience!
How long is the WANDER?
We will plan on the day excursion to be 5.5 hours but a lot will depend upon the chemistry of the group and the deepness of our interactions/discussions.
How strenuous is the yoga?
The yoga on Mar. 18 is gentle and beginner/intermediate based.
What is “fluid female movement” or goddess flow (Mar. 17)?
Employing the essence of the “S Factor“, the practice involves quieting down the voices of criticism and learning how to move without inhibition and honor/celebrate the woman that we all are. Taught by Jen Reuben of Siren Movement, it involves free flow movement and connection to the self, and learning how to fall in love with your body and the way it feels.
What is a tea ceremony (Mar. 18)?
Lauren Stern of KINNABARI Teahouse will lead the Tea Ceremony on Mar. 18. Tea Ceremonies are sacred spaces of relationship. Tea is an ancient and giving heart medicine that reminds us that we are not just a part of nature – we are nature. Find out more about the health benefits and other curative qualities of the Puerh Chinese tea from Yunnan province, the main tea served by Kinnabari.
What about snow shoes and poles — I don’t own my own equipment.
Included in the excursion is snowshoe and pole rental through Silver Star Ski & Sport. Please specify when you register that you need a rental.
What should I bring?
If you have your own yoga mat, that would be helpful. There will be a few available to borrow. A towel to spread on your mat is helpful. Lots of water will ensure you stay hydrated.
For the snowshoe excursion, plan on your snowshoes going over your winter boots. Wear layers that you can remove if you get heated up — a fleece and a shell are a good idea, as are gloves/mittens, a knit hat and sunglasses (don’t forget sunscreen!) Snow pants are also smart to keep you extremities warm. Bring water and a small snack if you tend to get hungry — we’ll be burning lots of calories! We will also have healthy snacks available to grab between yoga and the snowshoeing.
What’s for brunch?
A light selection of fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, bagels, coffee/tea. If you have dietary restrictions, please specify when you register.
What is the cancellation policy?
Wild Women Tribe has a 48-hour cancellation policy. If the spot can be filled with someone from the waitlist, you will receive a full credit towards another WANDER, otherwise will be charged 50 percent of the rate (the other 50 percent will be issued in the form of a credit to a future WANDER). Rebookings from credit must occur within 30 days. Full terms and conditions here.
