Hike & Heal is a FREE group for women to explore new paths in the woods and in their feminine wellness. At the halfway point in the hike we take a quick refresher break and Sunny Majeedah leads a discussion on various hormone balance, pelvic health and self-care focused issues.
This is a non-judgemental and sacred zone for you to release, learn and connect with women on a similar healing journey as yours. You do not need to be an avid hiker or climber and you don't need fancy equipment. All you need to bring is your authentic self and a love for learning about the mind, body, spirit connection for healing your body.
The trails vary from a leisurely stroll to intermediate abilities and distances and take place all over the DMV metro area. The dates are flexible and usually occur 3-5 times a month. Most hikes are either Saturday or Sunday mornings and Wednesday mornings for a more challenging distance and terrain for those interested. The schedule was created to accommodate various schedules. Try to attend several hikes for deeper connection! All dates will be posted and updated regularly in case of weather condition cancelations.
NEW for this season! We've added FAMILY DAYS! There will be a few days on the calendar when you can bring your kids and guys along for the hike. This is a wonderful way to spend the morning and also introduce them to the woods and your wellness journey so they can support you.
