You will learn about the gifts of the springtime: clarity, creativity, and flexibility. As we explore the Arboretum, we will practice exercises to focus on how you can feel balanced, peaceful, and healthy in this time of year. Rachel's website is: www.pointsofreturnacupuncture.com.

Walking Mindfulness Meditation
Sara Trohaugh Yoga Instructor and Owner, Restorative Bodywork Mindfulness meditation is a form of meditation designed to develop the skills of deep listening to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience and compassion. Mindfulness guides us to become more aware of thoughts and the sensory world: of what we are hearing, feeling, smelling, and experiencing through the body in the present moment, either inside or outside of ourselves. This class will guide us to use mindfulness mediation practices to fully enjoy the beautiful surroundings of nature and be fully present with ourselves as we stroll through the arboretum. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather.

Tai Chi in the Garden
Al Smith
Practitioner Member, National Qigong Association

Do you want to reduce stress, quiet down, move in a slow, balanced way, and cultivate energy? In the beautiful outdoor setting of the Morris Arboretum we will share in the practice of the healing art of Tai Chi. Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that today is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner accompanied by deep breathing. Often described as meditation in motion, Tai Chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements. We will begin with Tai Chi EasyTM Level 1, no previous experience is needed. Al Smith has over 200 hours of teacher training from the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. Please wear loose-fitting clothing to the class.
