Elevate Your Practice with Heli Yoga!
The Mindful Marmot is excited to be teaming up with Marathon Helicopters to offer heli-yoga! We are one of only a handful of companies world wide to offer this service. Let our experienced pilot, Mike, take you on a tour of Resurrection Bay with a birds eye view of spectacular mountain tops and glaciers. After our tour, Mike will drop us off in our chosen location to engage in a serene vinyasa practice. Soak up the beauty of Alaska and total solitude while we practice and engage in mind, body, and breath exercises amidst breathtaking sights of glaciers, alpine meadows, and the expanse of the bay. These yoga adventures are tailored to fit your needs, where you want to go, and your specific yoga practice. Choose from either Heli-Yoga in the Marathon Bowl or one of three remote yoga options listed below.
Heli Yoga in the Marathon Bowl
This is our most accessible Heli-Yoga option. We offer a flight over Seward and up Mt. Marathon with an included yoga class in the bowl starting at $150/person! This adventure brings you to the bowl of one of our most beloved mountains and offers an expansive view of Seward and Resurrection Bay, all without having to do the hike up! After our yoga practice we will hike down and back to town. Or for an added price arrange for a helicopter pick up and a return flight. Enjoy a helicopter ride to one of our favorite spots to relax, practice yoga, and take in an inspiring view! Click one of the links below to book your Heli-Yoga in the Bowl experience!
