Qi Gong Practice:
Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese healing art designed to enhance one’s capacity to work effectively with life-force energy, known as Qi. Our time together will be shared through activating our Qi, releasing and purifying blocked energy, tonifying our internal power, as well as gentle stretching & slow flowing movements.Guided Forest Therapy Walk:
A Forest Therapy walk is a guided meander through the forest to re-establish a truer sense of overall health and well-being. Through simple sensory invitations of awareness, participants strengthen their connection to the natural environment around them. This connection has been proven to create profound changes for both people’s mental and physical health. Research shows that prolonged moments in forests reduce stress, anxiety, depression and fatigue. A gentle and kind opportunity to experience the magic and messages of nature. Dress is comfortable, loose fitting clothing. Bring layers for both inside and out in variable spring conditions.
