Wellness Retreat at Woolman Hill
Age Level: All
Fitness Level: All
Skill Level: All
This one-day wellness retreat is focused on grounding outdoor experiences at the lovely Woolman Hill Retreat Center in Deerfield, Massachusetts.
Our morning starts in the Meeting House where we briefly introduce ourselves and talk about our goals for the day. We’ll take a few minutes for focused breathing exercises to center ourselves and begin our experience together.
Winter is a beautiful time to enjoy a walk in the woods and you don’t need prior experience to don a pair of snowshoes or micro spikes to make the experience an enjoyable one. Once we get going, we’ll explore the beauty of the winter forest and connect to the healing powers of nature. We’ll discover the abundance of life in the forest. With tree and bird identification as well as wildlife tracking, we can begin to know our natural world more intimately.
Returning to the Meeting House, and following a short break, we will have an all-levels, yoga experience. With a gentle and mindful flow our movements will help us feel centered as we further immerse ourselves.
After our yoga session we will nourish ourselves with a healthy and delicious, farm-to-table lunch. As we enjoy our lunch, we will have time to reflect on our day and appreciate our shared experience in nature.
