Alberta Packing List
1. YES – we know it is CAN be cold in Alberta at any given moment. It us up to you to pack accordingly. Especially if sleeping in a tipi, bring the properly rated sleeping bag. All other accommodation is heated.
2. If you are in a tipi there is an IMPORTANT meeting Friday at dinner to go over how to keep your fire STOKED all night :)
3. Bring a bike, scooter, rollerblades, or skateboard. From one end of camp to the other for some classes is 1.6 km. This will cut down on traffic/parking issues as it is a tight road.
4. Hitch Hike – let’s get the family vibes HIGH early on. If you are driving and you see a Camp Yogi walking with their thumb out. Pick em UP!
Rule #1 :) – Make sure you come well fed. Our first lunch together is at 1:00 PM on Friday!
The list below is a guide to help prepare you for your upcoming experience at Camp Yoga! Be sure to check the weather before packing for camp and pack clothes appropriate for the activities you have signed up for. Come dressed for a yoga/workout as opening ceremonies has all elements included. Arriving in jeans might make that tough :)
Please note, it can get pretty chilly overnight randomly in Alberta. Super warm during the day and chilly at night. Pack to sleep warm if you’re in a tipi :) All other accommodations are heated.
- Bedding. We suggest a warm sleeping bag and pillow. Mattress is included!
- TIPIS – If you are in a tipi PLEASE ensure you have a winter rated sleeping bag. There are fire pits in the tipis to keep you warm, however the group will need to feed the fire throughout the night :)
