This outdoor adventure course, designed for women and featuring some invigorating new events, combines the excitement of a gorge rappel and the Hoffman Challenge Course with day hiking and the deep relaxation techniques, postures, and spiritual renewal of yoga. Amy Kohut, the director of Cornell's Team and Leadership Center, and Carol James, senior facilitator and certified yoga teacher, will guide and support our group through daily outings and adventures in Ithaca's most scenic areas—and on the yoga mat! Previous participants have loved the class. Whether a veteran or a newbie, you will be in great, encouraging company. Equipment and facilities fee: $150.


Registration is closed for this class. Please contact CAU if you have questions.
