Wild Yoga = Green Exercise. Green Exercise is a term used to describe how exercising in nature benefits our emotional well-being. Twenty years of studies have found that exercising in green spaces (or a beach, mountain top, etc) magnifies the general benefits of exercise, reducing stress and boosting our mood. Add in sunlight, essential oils in the air, good bacteria in soil, the effect of birdsong on our brain... Suffice to say, Green Exercise extra beneficial for our physical and mental health. Each Wild Yoga class will consist of a 50 min gentle flow connecting our breath with fluid movement to warm, open and lengthen our bodies... all while absorbing the rich sights, sounds and smells of the nature that surrounds us. Class level will have an intermediate focus, so some knowledge of yoga will be helpful. All levels are welcome and plenty of pose options will be offered. Classes will be held on the sprawling, sun-soaked Rolling Ridge lawn, in front of the mansion, facing the lake, with a bald eagle's nest overhead. Anyone who prefers shade, no problem, there is plenty of shade, as well! A 10 minute savanna at the end of the class, will aim to open our senses and bring a deeper connection with the natural world. The main goal is to take time out of your day/week to quiet the busy mind, stir up some feel-good energy and gratitude, and to have an appointment with life!
