Save Your Back! (Class is Full)
Lucy Dinsmore
Horticulturist, Morris Arboretum

Learn tools and techniques to save your back in the garden. You will learn proper body mechanics from a young(ish) gardener who knows about back pain. After years of experience with physical therapy, yoga, pilates, and the dreaded gym, Lucy will share how to stay strong whether gardening for a living or for fun. You will learn strengthening exercises, try out gardening tools, and end with some restorative stretches to leave you feeling tall and strong. You will be active in this class, so dress for the outdoors and come prepared to stretch! This class meets at Bloomfield Farm. Look for the paved road across Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Park in the lot and follow the signs to the Horticulture Center.

Walking Mindfulness Meditation (Class is Full)

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. Amidst the beautiful setting of the Arboretum, this class will guide us to use mindfulness mediation practices to 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.
