Spring Equinox Mindful Outdoor Experience with Julie Kaus
April 23, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Join seasoned yoga teacher and Mindful Outdoor Guide, Julie Kaus for a meandering nature connection experience that includes:
Gentle Yoga Movement ~ Breathing & Centering Exercises ~ Walking with Awareness ~ Nature Meditation ~ Sharing Circle
All are welcome, we will be moving slowly & comfortably with the simple intention
of letting nature be our guide to:
be present through sensory awareness
remember our connection with the living earth
restore balance between modern-day living & the pace of nature
use nature to ground, regulate & self soothe
Mindful connection with the outdoors is crucial for cultivating a balanced, inspired and fulfilled life. Let yourself be guided…
For your body: Release stress, breathe fresh air and get moving.
For your mind: Settle your awareness on nature’s soothing atmosphere.
For your spirit: Venture into the natural world to gain inspiration from the living earth. 🌱
WHAT TO BRING:
~ An open mind. Come without expectations other than to let nature be our guide.
~ Wear comfortable clothing & dress in layers that are appropriate for current conditions
~ Wear comfortable walking shoes and nothing with a smooth tread. Be prepared for mud, water and slightly uneven ground
~ A small back/fanny pack is recommended to carry water and any medication, items that you may need
~ Something to sit on. We will take time for a short sitting meditation. If you don’t want to sit directly on the ground an old towel or a camp seat will work. Logs and rocks will also be available.
Weather: in the event that heavy rain, storm or adverse conditions are in the forecast, a decision will be made one hour prior to class start time.
