Black Friday Hikyoga™ at Corbett’s Glen Nature Park

I mentioned in my #OptOutside post last week that I planned to attend Black Friday Hikyoga™ led by Nicole Kazimer aka HelloYogaGirl. After a wonderful Thanksgiving day, I was ready to hit the trails and explore a local park I hadn’t visited before!

This Hikyoga™ event was somewhat different from the one I attended at Chimney Bluffs State Park. Instead of doing a warm up, out-and-back hike and finishing with a full yoga class, after our warm up we ventured to the trails without mats for a “stop-drop-and-yoga” style hike. Along the trail we stopped for several standing and balancing sequences, building off of tree pose each time.

Corbett’s Glen Nature Park is a 52-acre park located in Brighton, NY, close to the city of Rochester. The park offers over 2 miles of trails which include wood chip, boardwalk and dirt trails that lead patrons through wooded hills, along a creek, through a historic tunnel and alongside beautiful waterfalls. The trails in Corbett’s Glen are pretty wide and mostly flat which make them ideal for trail running. I love discovering new parks and trails in the area and this is a place I will definitely be visiting again soon – hopefully for some snowshoeing or trail running!

I go big when I shop small!

After avoiding the usual Black Friday shopping mayhem, I ventured out to some amazing local shops in Rochester for Small Business Saturday! While I used the opportunity to get most of my holiday shopping done, I did get one present for myself – a “Yoga and Champagne” Hikyoga™ sweatshirt. You can pick up some Hikyoga™ gear for yourself at thread, a local boutique in the South Wedge neighborhood. Support local businesses wherever you are this holiday season!
