Art, Movement, and Meditation: a Yoga Hike at Saint-Gaudens NHS
Slow yourself down for a reflective look at this national treasure in Cornish, NH. The gardens will be in full bloom for us to enjoy as we explore the land where one of America's most revered sculptors, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, found his inspiration. With serene Mount Ascutney in the background, you will be led through a moving meditation that includes gentle yoga poses and flowing movements, as well as maintaining focus on your breath while witnessing the natural beauty of this park. This event is an EASY level walk geared towards those who want a slower, meditative experience; it includes a quarter-mile hike along the park's Ravine Trail which has a short steep descent down to a quiet brookside path, and an ascent back up to the grounds to view Saint-Gaudens' striking temple. The optional yoga poses will be at a beginner/easy level. A great event for those new to yoga.
Meet in the site parking lot Saturday, July 22 from 10:30 am - 12 pm
