Wellness & Nature
We will continue with
Yoga, TaiChi/QiGong, Pilates, Meditation and adding Yoga Fusion & Movement to our list of classes. As the weather get swarmer - we will move outdoors, in our Gardens, Pumpkin Field and even in the stream.
For what better place than to be outdoors!
LAUNCH - Monthly Wellness Salon
Come join us to connect with fellow members of our community over coffee & tea, learn some insights on specific health topics from our nutritionist, and listen to guest speakers while they educate us on their field of practice. In addition to the Wellness Salon which will meet monthly on Saturday mornings, we will be offering special programs on a variety of healing methods.
Walking & Mindfulness Experience
In 2023 our Walks will be scheduled around the The Equinox & Solstices. A new experience as we walk the trails of WhittemoreCCC.
We have unveiled 3 of the 5 benches and look forward to unveiling the last two in 2023! Currently the trail map, and locations of each bench, as well as their associated Mindfulness Meditation can be found HERE!
Why are some of our programs in both Wellness & Nature - because you cannot have one without the other.
Today it is even more important than ever to take care of oneself, being mindful, staying healthy and what better place than in nature.
