Instructor: Nadine Mazzola
Reset the stress button and experience the Winter grandeur of the conservatories in a whole new way with the practice of Shinrin-Yoku. We will use our senses to meet and develop a connection with the living-residents (the plants) of this special space as we explore with our senses their flowers and fragrance, outstanding foliage and enticing fruit. This simple yet profound practice draws from mindfulness, sensory awareness and nature. You'll engage all your senses through a series of invitations to bring you to the present moment. We will conclude with a Shinrin Yoku Tea ceremony and a snack next to the conservatory. Shinrin Yoku is based on the idea that the natural world is the balancing factors to our stressed lives.
