Outdoor Mindfulness: Taking Your Practice Outdoors – Mini Retreat with Donna & Susan

Friday, August 20, 10am-2pm
Noll Nature Pavilion at Glen Park, Williamsville
Yoga calms the nervous system and cultivates a peaceful mind. Shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, a Japanese outdoor mindfulness experience, helps individuals access the healing properties of nature. This session combines both practices for a powerful and rich immersive experience. Join Donna, a Himalayan Institute Yoga/Meditation instructor, and Susan, a Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health certified outdoor mindfulness guide, at beautiful Glen Park in the quaint village of Williamsville. The morning begins in a meadow with a guided yoga, relaxation and meditation practice. After lunch, we will venture into the landscape. There you will be invited to extend your meditative experience by using your senses, curiosity, and inherent connection to nature to be fully present to the more than human world. Through meditation and time in nature, we can work to restore a balance between our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, reduce stress, boost immune function and energy, and experience a profound sense of belonging and well-being. (This session will not be strenuous; all skill levels and abilities can be accommodated).
Registration required. The pavilion at Glen Park is large and well covered, so we can meet rain or shine! Please bring your lunch and a yoga mat or towel.
Glen Park Address: 5565 Main St, Williamsville NY. Meet in the Noll Nature Pavilion at Glen Park (off Grove Street). Parking is available in the lot next to the Noll pavilion. Fee: $40 (ID#: S47) —
