Programs for Adults

Are your shoulders scrunched up to your ears? Are you feeling too connected but a disconnect from real conversation? Tired of the regular work / parenting / exercise / routine? Time to get grounded!




Research shows that recess is important for our kids' academic success. It is a sweet bit of time for students to relax with friends, get fresh air, run around and rest the noggin. Studies show that kids who have outdoor recess perform better in the classroom. So let's practice what is being preached. Join the Elements DC for unique, local, adventure. We will get outside, active and grounded and send you back ready to tackle the 'to do's'.

Recesses will be a couple of hours in length and sprinkled throughout the year. Be sure to subscribe so you can be in the know of an upcoming RECESS.

The Local 'YOU'cation

The Elements reBOOT is a week devoted to you: a week to get outside and experience unique woodland walks with like-minded friends. No expensive flights, jet lag or shock of reentry, reBOOT right here and let The Elements D.C. lead the way.

Each reBOOT is a week long and includes 25 adventures throughout DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Outings are scheduled throughout each day of the week. You can come on any or all of the walks. Our pace is brisk, but flexible. You can also take advantage of the discounted Elements Add-Ons: a seasonal cleanse; massage; and yoga. The result? A stronger, healthier, more grounded YOU!

We offer reBOOTs in both Spring and Fall.

$125 for full reBOOT: any and all of the 22 hikes + discounted Add-Ons  + Yoga/Hike RECESS

$75 for 12 walks + discounted Add-Ons (Yoga/Hike RECESS can be bought separately)

A Rejuvenating Getaway

Indulge in an invigorating escape. Venture out of town to the mountains of Virginia for heart pumping hikes, paired with delicious food, yoga and a stay at luxurious, boutique hotels.

The Elements Lexington Hiking reTREAT includes two days of Elements curated and guided hikes; early morning yoga; trail-head shuttle service and all meals including summit-side, gourmet picnics and dinner at the farm to table Red Hen Restaurant (except for Sunday/Monday reTREATs). We'll provide booking information for a 2-night stay at the Georges, a boutique hotel; cost of hotel is not included in the price of the package.

The Elements guides do the heavy lifting, literally — by carrying picnics, maps first aid kits etc, and figuratively by curating the routes so you can focus on the beauty! Our priority is your safety but rest assured, fun, adventure and food are all gunning for second place!

We offer reTREATs in both Spring and Fall.
