***Registration closes Sunday, July 23rd!***
Sometimes during the glorious summer months, it’s hard to choose between going to yoga and playing outside. To that, we say: Why choose?!
This July, join us for an outdoor yoga and white water rafting adventure!
We’ll arrive in White Salmon, Washington and get ready to raft! We’ll do a quick warm up and then get on our wetsuits and venture out onto the water with our Wet Planet Whitewater guides to raft the White Salmon River. After a couple hours of so much fun on the water, we’ll have a lovely evening yoga class with Abby to help you stretch and release! Optional dinner and hangtime with beer or bucha or burgers at the Wet Planet cafe afterward!
All levels welcome; no rafting experience necessary.

1:30pm Pre-raft warm-up
2pm – 5:30pm River trip
5:45-6:45pm Light Snack and then Yoga with Abby!
6:45-Whenever! Option to stay and drink a beer or eat some food at the delicious Wet Planet Cafe.

About Abby Kraai
Abby Kraai received her yoga teaching certificate (RYT 200) from Yoga Tree in San Francisco, CA, and has studied a rich blend of styles including Iyengar, Vinyasa, Hatha, Meditation, Kids Yoga, and Yoga for Athletes.
Abby first came to the mat as a teenager, when she was diagnosed with a severe case of scoliosis. When back braces, chiropractors, and yoga were not enough, she received corrective surgery in 2002; two stainless steel rods, twenty-two screws, and eleven fused vertebrae later, Abby found new meaning in the word flexibility, and a refreshed appreciation for the miracle that is one’s body.
She took up distance running, cycling, and Ultimate Frisbee, and soon found herself pulled back to yoga. Through a balance of Vinyasa, Restorative, and Meditation practices, she built a stronger connection between her breath, body and mind – this connection followed her out of the studio and onto the Frisbee field, the race course, and into her daily life.
In every class that she teaches, Abby hopes to inspire her students to appreciate their bodies, stretch their limits, and never to take themselves too seriously.
Abby’s other interests include improv comedy, cooking, organic farming, and petting small dogs.
