reBOOT (refreshed) Autumn 2019


It’s YOU time!

You spoke and we listened. We are thrilled to offer refreshing new changes to our Autumn 2019 reBOOT. Here’s what we have for ya:

  • For any walk over 60 minutes, we will have 2 Elements guides. Therefore those who want to move fast for heart pumping exercise, we got ya and will lead the way. For those who want to slow down to ‘smell the roses’ we are all set for you too.

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday we have scheduled 60, 90 and 120 minute walks. So if time is restricted join our shorter walk or unlimited hoof along on a longer walk. You have options and room to roam.

  • On Wednesday, we are offering an all day hike in the mountains of Virginia (60 minute drive time). We want to get farther afield and take advantage of the majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah River Valley.

  • And drum roll. . . .too busy to commit to the Full reBOOT, then register for just the walks or hike that suit your schedule. We welcome you for one or all of our 16 Autumn reBOOT adventures.

  • Lastly, some things should never change. We will always offer really unique, off the beaten track routes and yet again, we are partnering with Little Green for the Autumn seasonal, guided cleanse. If you need to Full(y) reBOOT you will receive a discount code to apply towards the Little Green Cleanse registration.

This is our best reBOOT yet and we can’t wait to share all the treasures of the trail and talents of our vibrant community with you.

We would love if you would encourage your friends to join but rest assured, whether solo or with your friends, you will leave each Elements reBOOT experience stronger, wiser from the conversation (and quiet) and grounded.

Every day you will receive an Elements email with the nitty gritty details of the upcoming reBOOT walks as well as wisdom and inspiration from the trail.

  • $125; Full reBOOT (any or all of our 17 walks and hike) + discounted Add Ons

  • $25: ‘A La Walk reBOOT’: choose the individual walks that suit your schedule.
