You'll see the full description and the link at the end to register. WHAT TO EXPECT: Classes are held outside on the beautiful lakeside grounds of Rolling Ridge. Each week we will open our senses using specific forest bathing "invitations" (activities) that allow us to engage deeply with nature. This practice of bringing captivated attention to the world around us, offers many mental and physical benefits. Some of these include: *Reduces stress & cortisol *Boosts mood *Increases immunity *Regulates blood pressure & heart rate *Enhances focus and creativity *Activates parasympathetic nervous system to achieve "Rest & Digest" state *Rests & recharges the pre-frontal cortex (aka. attention restoration theory) Participants will not only benefit from the in-person class experiences, but also learn simple practices to use on their own for continued well-being. Classes are slow paced and low impact. Participants should be able to walk about .5 miles over mildly uneven ground (roots, rocks, small inclines), and be able to sit and stand for short periods (portable stools will be provided). Proper clothing and shoes for weekly weather will be needed. Sign up is through Community Programs. If you have questions about the 4 week course, please reach out. Space is Limited!
