A Mindful, Meditative Nature Tour with Yoga Instructor & SAHC Director of Nature Experiences, Lauren McTigue
We know how good being in nature can make us feel. The sounds and scents of the forest, the sunlight playing through the leaves, the fresh, clean air — these things give us a sense of comfort. They ease our stress and worry, help us to relax and to think more clearly. Being in nature can restore our mood, boost creativity, give us back energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us. The way that we move in nature physically affects how we interact with it and can enhance the restorative benefits of being in nature. Join Lauren to learn how to be aware of your body’s alignment and use nature as a place for refuge, self-contemplation, and full-body movement.
This year, our June Jamboree celebration looks quite different than it has in previous years – it’s going to be a week-long celebration of conservation work from the Highlands of Roan to the farming communities in the French Broad River watershed. We invite you to come along with us on virtual adventures or self-guided driving tours. You don’t have to choose — you can enjoy them all! Check out the descriptions below; video, maps and other content will be posted June 15-20.
