Who are you? How long have you been part of the PG Family?

My name is Joshua Wise, and I’ve been climbing at PG for just coming up on seven years now. PG is kind of my home for a lot of things — it feels like a second home for climbing, and it feels like home for Yoga, and — we say “climbing, yoga, fitness” here at PG, right? And really, PG is my home for all of these. I started my practice of yoga here at PG, too. I think many members might see me as kind of a fixture here — I’m here most days of the week, except during ski season!

The perfect team shares your psyche, pushes you to be your best and helps you laugh at all the silly little things that life throws at you. They make you more creative, more compassionate, more connected. Together you dream up cool adventures, embark on fascinating journeys and stand on distant summits. A great team makes the climb even more rewarding.

With that, we are very proud to announce our newest addition to the Planet Granite and Earth Treks family, Robert Cohen! Robert is joining as our new CEO and will be the perfect teammate to guide us as we continue to create incredible places for our communities to gather.Read More…

Meet Larissa! Larissa is one of our Yoga Instructors in San Francisco.

Who are you? What do you teach?

I was born and raised in Marin County, but made a home for myself in Santa Barbara where I lived for the past seven years before moving back to the Bay. I moved there for UCSB & the beach, but stayed for the yogi community. My Power Yoga teacher training led to a huge perspective shift, and a deeper understanding of my Self. I have been teaching anywhere from one to fifteen Power or Vinyasa classes a week since the day I got my certification, and fall a little deeper in love with yoga every time.

Join us for a little chat with Caitlin, one of our yoga instructors in SF! We sat down with Caitlin to find out a bit more about her and her classes! 

Who are you? What do you teach? Emphasis on a specific type of yoga?

I’m Caitlin Talbot and I teach Restorative/Yin at Planet Granite on Wednesday nights. I also have taught Foundations.

What benefits can Foundations and Yin/Restorativelead to if done routinely?

Since the members of Planet Granite tend to  already be on the fit and active end of the spectrum, the Yoga Foundations class will help these students to increase a deeper connection to their breath, awareness, moving with ease and flexibility as well as establishing mental focus and a larger sense of well being. The Restorative/Yin class is especially helpful for those who want to increase their range of motion and enter a meditative space of deep physical awareness and letting go. Especially beneficial for those of us who tend to have fast-paced lives and don’t always take the time to slow down and unwind.
