Let’s reconnect to ourselves and our forest neighbors with an afternoon of yoga and hiking along Barton Cove on Saturday, April 13th from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. We’ll shift our focus between our inner and outer landscapes to deepen our presence and attune to nature as it manifests in our own bodies and the world around us.

The hiking will be mostly silent and gently paced (~3 miles w/a few short, steep sections), alternating with a gentle yoga practice that integrates mindful movement, conscious breathing, and meditation. Beginners welcome. Ages 13+.  Bring water, dress in layers, and feel free to use hiking poles, or let us know if you need to borrow some. Pre-registration is required at www.bookeo.com/northfield
