This is a great intermediate yoga practice, wonderful for couples and friends, with modifications available for beginners or advanced practitioners.

Instructor is Shana Thornton, 200RYT registered with Yoga Alliance.

Participants need to arrive with enough time to walk to the mouth of the cave from the parking area. Follow the paved trail by the lake. Class takes place at the mouth of the cave.
